Adolescents and older adults pay less attention to social cues in real-world interactions than young adults.
A new digital app has shown to be successful in detecting one key symptom associated with ASD in young children. The app, which combines gaze tracking and machine learning algorithms, could be an inexpensive new tool to help with the diagnosis of autism.
A new study reveals the relationship between attentional state and emotions from pupillary reactions. Visual perception elicits emotions in all attentional state, while auditory perception elicits emotions only when attention is paid to sounds.
Using scenes from movies, researchers discover how different brain areas can be used flexibly and as needed. The study sheds light on how the brain transitions between moral thinking and empathy.
Eye movements distinguish between "go" and "no go" actions early in the decision-making process, before the hand even starts to move.
Study reveals two different brain structures are implicated in implicit and explicit theory of mind, and both regions mature at different ages to fulfill their function. The supramarginal gyrus matures earlier, enabling theory of mind to occur slightly earlier than believed. Full ability for theory of mind occurs at age four when the temporoparietal junction matures.
A newly developed eye movement measurement test sheds light on inhibitory control and brain aging.
The human brain can recognize a familiar tune within 100 milliseconds of the onset of sound.
