Using a mathematical model, researchers uncover the effects of emotion in memory encoding. They hope the data can be used to predict which experiences a person is most likely to recall.
Researchers have investigated the mouth clicks in human echolocation. They hope to use synthetic human clicks to investigate how sounds can reveal the physical features of an object.
Perception is founded on Bayesian principles, even though the brain's execution of strategies appears to be imperfect. Researchers say the view perception is an imperfect Bayesian inference can provide a middle ground between traditional and anti-Bayesian models.
Children exposed to virtual interactive characters in educational games learned more quickly and were more accurate in math responses when playing a virtual game. Findings suggest a child's interaction with virtual characters could help improve the learning of basic early math skills.
Using objects when trying to solve problems may help to find new ways of finding a solution, researchers report.
Baby talk can teach infants the relevant properties of language, a new study reports.
