Study reveals a significant number of COVID-19 survivors suffer from a range of neuropsychological and cognitive problems following recovery. Coronavirus survivors report experiencing PTSD, depression, memory impairments, and attention impairments upon recovery from the virus.
Older adults can be more focused, less mentally restless, and not as impeded by anxiety than those in younger generations.
Increased alpha waves in the prefrontal cortex and decreased P3 activity in the parietal cortex are potential neural biomarkers for breaks in our attention span.
Study sheds light on the brain chemistry involved in attention loss when a person drinks alcohol.
Study identifies a key role locus coeruleus neurons play in attentional control.
A new study reveals a correlation between multimedia multitasking, memory loss, and difficulties in maintaining attention.
Children who learn to play musical instruments have an edge over their non-musical peers when it comes to learning, memory, and attention. Those who learn musical instruments showed greater activity in the inferior frontal gyrus and the supramarginal gyrus, which are parts of the "phonological loop". The phonological loop is associated with working memory involved in auditory processing. Researchers say learning an instrument also has positive implications on creativity and quality of life overall for children.
Aerobic exercise for up to one hour at moderate to high intensity improves memory, attention, and learning for up to two hours.
Researchers identify three populations of neurons in layer 6 of the cortex that contribute to alertness.
Toddlers who frequently use touchscreen technology may have an edge over their peers who are not routinely exposed to the technology when it comes to visual search abilities.
