Using human stem cells to develop a brain organoid model, researchers were able to show exposure to a common pesticide synergizes with an autism-linked gene mutation. The study provides clear evidence that genetics and environment may combine to disrupt neurodevelopment.
Combining machine learning with neuroimaging data, researchers identified a brain region that appears to govern contextual associations.
Adults learning to read a novel language can better cement their lessons with handwriting, a new study reports. Writing by hand reinforces both aural and visual learning, providing a perceptual-motor experience that unifies what is being learned about the letters.
