Researchers report the adult IQ of preterm and low birth weight babies can be predicted by the age of two, but for full term babies, IQ can not be predicted until they are six.
According to a new Journal of Alzheimer's Disease study, common genetic variants in amyloid precursor protein are associated with fluid intelligence in children.
A new study addresses whether religiousity is associated with lower intelligence. Researchers report religious people appear to be predisposed to rely more heavily on intuition when it comes to decision making, over reasoning. They conclude cognitive training could allow religious minded people to maintain their believes without over relying on intuition when making decisions.
How well you are able to focus on the task at hand could be predicted by your brain connections, a new paper reports.
A new study of the genetic factors associated with ASD draws attention to the impact autism can have on motor skills and cognitive function.
EEG tests reveal children on the autism spectrum have lower peak alpha frequency than their peers not on the spectrum. Additionally, the lower the peak alpha frequency, the lower a child's non-verbal IQ was, the researchers discovered. Researchers believe the peak alpha frequency may not only be a useful biomarker for autism diagnosis, but also a marker to test the severity of the disorder.
According to researchers, the ability to assess memory quality appears in children, and metamemory continues to improve beyond childhood into adolescence. The findings could provide new insights into effective learning methods and assist teachers to devise new educational strategies.
Higher intelligence was associated with higher temporal stability of brain network modularity. Brain regions of the dorsal attention network contributed most to the observed effect.
