Articles on Cognitive Neurobiology, the branch of science that studies the biological foundations of mental phenomena. Some of the major topics include language, emotion, motor learning, sexual behavior, decision making, etc.
Cognitive Neurobiology Articles
How certain aspects of brain structure and function help determine how easily we learn new things, and how learning capacity contributes to individual differences in intelligence...
Indiana University researchers are studying a ground-breaking theory that young children are able to learn large groups of words rapidly by data-mining.
College seems to pay off well into retirement. A new study from the University of Toronto sheds light on why higher education seems to buffer people from cognitive declines as they age.
Eight-year-old children have a radically different learning strategy from twelve-year-olds and adults.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) typically starts in young adulthood, but about five percent of cases start in childhood or the teen years.
A collaborative study led by researchers at the Montreal Neurological Institute (MNI), McGill University has demonstrated a positive link between cognitive ability and cortical thickness in the brains of healthy 6 to 18 year olds
Cognitive testing may help people with inactive or benign multiple sclerosis (MS) better predict their future with the disease
About two-thirds of children with sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) have some degree of cognitive deficit, but the severity of the cognitive deficit has been notoriously difficult to correlate to the severity of the SDB
Alcoholics tend to be deficient in both cognitive and emotional processes
UCLA brain imaging study suggests a neurology of belief
Painful, emotional memories that people would most like to forget may be the toughest to leave behind, especially when memories are created through visual cues
Researchers are beginning to understand why we remember events that carry negative emotional weight.
For the first time, research has shown that the autistic brain has fewer neurons in an area related to emotion and social behavior
We are more likely to remember emotional words if we hear them with our left ear than our right ear.
Neurons experience large-scale changes across their dendrites during learning
The authors show that when averaging the non-stationary prediction errors across trials, a ramping in the activity of the dopamine neurons should be apparent, whose magnitude is dependent on the learning rate.
Fine motor skills in South African children with symptoms of ADHD: influence of subtype, gender, age, and hand dominance
Motor problems, often characterised as clumsiness or poor motor coordination, have been associated with ADHD in addition to the main symptom groups of inattention, impulsiveness, and overactivity.
Remembering one year later: Role of the amygdala and the medial temporal lobe memory system in retrieving emotional memories
These findings clarify the role of the amygdala and the medial temporal lobe memory regions in recollection and familiarity of emotional memory after lengthy retention intervals
In our aging society, with an increased urgency to develop new compounds that target serious illnesses like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease, memory enhancement drugs are becoming a big business.
American and French CNRS scientists have shown that a memory of a traumatic event can be wiped out, although other, associated recollections remain intact.
