Whether an infant is monolingual or exposed to two languages, researchers found they prefer to listen to an adult indulging in baby-talk.
Researchers have identified a connectivity fingerprint that suggests the brain's reading network works across different cognitive domains, even mathematical skills.
An increase in theta oscillations in the hippocampus help make learning and subsequent memory more efficient.
Overactive hippocampal activity may explain why some older people have trouble with spatial navigation and learning.
Those who received explicit instructions about the relationship between sound and spelling experienced dramatic improvements in their reading ability.
The use of social media, specifically to drive "likes" to our content, follows a pattern of "reward learning", much like when an animal is trained to seek food rewards.
Novel experiences dampen previous memory representations in the hippocampus and prefrontal cortex, facilitating flexible strategy encoding in mice.
Researchers map how the structure of existing memories is reorganized in the brain as new experiences are committed to memory.
