Our knowledge of the world has a critical impact on the ability to use mathematical reasoning, even for mathematicians. Findings reveal math professionals can be duped by some aspects of their knowledge about the world and fail to solve simple fifth-grade math problems.
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.
A newly developed mathematical framework describes the ecology of the microbiome coupled to its host. The approach allows researchers to evaluate the microbiome-host interaction landscape and examine why diverse microbiome are associated with similar health outcomes.
Highly engaged instrumental music students were, on average, academically over a year ahead of their non-musical peers.
The 'Generative Model of 3D Face Identity' is able to reconstruct facial models using information stored in a person's brain when recalling the familiar face of another person.
Our brains need only perform a few fast statistical calculations to detect the key properties of an unknown object. Findings challenge existing views of how our brains extract and learn about our environment.
A new mathematical model can predict how the brain reacts when learning a rhythmic beat. The model shows how a neural network can act as a 'neural metronome' by estimating time intervals between beats within tens of milliseconds. The metronome relies on gamma oscillations to keep track of time.
Music, movement and arts can help improve mathematical skills for children who find working with numbers difficult.
