College attendance drops after widespread job loss

 

When states suffer widespread job loss, the damage extends to the next generation, where college attendance drops among poor students, says new research. States marked by shuttered factories and dormant mines thus show a widening gap in college attendance between rich and poor. Yet poor students in hard-hit states don't avoid college simply because they can't afford it. Instead, job losses trigger adolescent emotional problems and poor academic performance -- which put college out of reach.

 

Think you know how to improve your memory? Think again

 

We may have to rethink how we improve memory, suggests a researcher. She has found our brains have particular states known as formation and recall. Optimal formation is best achieved when accompanied by novelty whereas familiarity leads to a recall state, hindering the goal. Duncan hopes these findings will one day help us to improve our memories and possibly offer insight into why diseases involving memory loss happen.

 

Concussion effects detailed on microscopic level

 

New research has uncovered details about subcellular-level changes in the brain after concussion that could one day lead to improved treatment.

 

Sign language users have better reaction times and peripheral vision

 

Sign language users have better reaction times and peripheral vision, report researchers. A new study showed that deaf adults have the best peripheral vision and reaction times comparing to hearing adults and BSL users, providing further evidence that losing one of your five senses enhances the others.

 

Comparing student performance on paper-and-pencil and computer-based-tests

 

Based on a study of more than 30,000 elementary, middle, and high school students conducted in winter 2015–16, researchers found that elementary and middle school students scored lower on a computer-based test that did not allow them to return to previous items than on two comparable tests—paper- or computer-based—that allowed them to skip, review, and change previous responses.

 

Amazingly flexible: Learning to read in your 30s profoundly transforms the brain

 

Reading is such a modern cultural invention that there is no specific area in the brain dedicated to it. Scientists have found that learning to read as an adult reconfigures evolutionarily ancient brain structures hitherto assigned to different skills. These findings were obtained in a large-scale study in India in which completely illiterate women learned how to read and write for six months.

 

Elevated brain amyloid level associated with increased likelihood of cognitive decline

 

Among a group of cognitively normal individuals, those who had elevated levels in the brain of the protein amyloid were more likely to experience cognitive decline in the following years, according to a study.

 

Low-income children missing out on language learning both at home and at school

 

Children from poor neighborhoods are less likely to have complex language building opportunities both in home and at school, putting them at a disadvantage in their kindergarten year, finds a new study.

 

Do red candies make you happier? 'Live the trial' class debunks the myth

 

A test to assess the effect of red candies on happiness has been used to teach the often 'dull' or 'boring' concepts of clinical research. The study was based on a mock randomized control trial across three countries.
