Researchers report working memory is often limited by interference from items we have seen earlier, leading to the appearance it having limited capacity.
Researchers have developed a new mathematical model, which incorporates EEG data and evolutionary game theory, that bridges the gap between waves and random fluctuations in the brain.
A mathematical model suggests a genetic mutation which extended the critical period by slowing prefrontal cortex development in two or more children 70,000 years ago was one factor for the emergence of recursive language and modern imagination.
A new computational model reveals the impaired ability to integrate size and probability of reward in those with schizophrenia may be the result of a lack of consideration of the magnitude of the reward.
Combining advanced microscopy and mathematical modeling, researchers have discovered a pattern that governs the growth of neurons.
Researchers report older people may make riskier decisions than younger people.
Researchers develop a new mathematical model to help better understand how the brain forms, and loses, memories.
Time plays a key role when it comes to Weber's Law.
Fitting musicians with motion capture sensors and applying mathematical techniques, researchers discover how musicians communicate non-verbally while performing different pieces of music.
A new study reports teens who sleep for less than 6 hours per night are at greater risk of mental health issues, substance abuse, accidents and other risk taking behaviors.
