Sleep makes it possible for babies to associate words with content, and not with noise

 

For babies every moment is a new experience -- until the infant brain organizes the flood of stimulations. It has to save new information in its long-term memory, aggregate similar experiences and categorize them. Therefore, one thing seems to be crucial: sufficient sleep. Researchers have now discovered that babies can even associate them with meanings the first time -- much earlier than supposed.

 

Action games expand the brain's cognitive abilities, study suggests

 

The human brain learns and adapts. Numerous research studies have focused on the impact of action video games on the brain by measuring cognitive abilities, such as perception and reaction time. An international team of psychologists has assembled data from the last fifteen years to quantify how action video games impact cognition. The research has resulted in two meta-analyses, which reveal a significant improvement in the cognitive abilities of gamers.

 

Smartphone addiction creates imbalance in brain, study suggests

 

Researchers have found an imbalance in the brain chemistry of young people addicted to smartphones and the internet.

 

Learning two languages does not limit academic potential for Head Start students

 

Not all dual-language learners are at risk academically, but as a group, these students are often labeled as such, despite differences in their English skills. A new study found as dual-language learners gained English proficiency, they had significant growth in cognitive and academic development, eventually outperforming students who only spoke English.

 

How the brain learns to fear: New understanding

 

What happens in the brain when we learn that fire is very hot and can hurt us? It's the kind of learning that results from the association of a sensory stimulus and the perception of threat. New research in mice suggests that the accepted understanding of that critical operation is incorrect in important respects.

 

Mu­sic and nat­ive lan­guage in­ter­act in the brain

 

The brain's auditory system can be shaped by exposure to different auditory environments, such as native language and musical training, according to new research. The results suggest that musical expertise does not enhance all auditory features equally for all language speakers.

 

Neuroscientists improve human memory by electrically stimulating brain

 

Neuroscientists have discovered precisely where and how to electrically stimulate the human brain to enhance people's recollection of distinct memories.

 

People who 'hear voices' can detect hidden speech in unusual sounds

 

People who hear voices that other people can't hear may use unusual skills when their brains process new sounds, according to new research.

Under pressure: Novel technology to model pressure-induced cellular injuries in the brain

 

Brain injuries -- whether caused by trauma, tumors, hemorrhage or developmental anomalies -- often produce elevated intracranial pressure (ICP), which in turn causes cellular injuries in the brain and additional neurological deficits beyond those associated with the initial insult. Little is known about the mechanisms underlying secondary ICP-induced cellular injuries. Researchers have developed a model of ICP-induced brain injury that could help elucidate those mechanisms and uncover novel therapeutics.
