Researchers call for a rigorous scientific exploration of MDMA's effects to identify precisely how the drug works, the data from which could be used to develop therapeutic compounds.
'Cluttering' of the brain and memory is one reason why older people are more susceptible to manipulation, a new study reports.
Some words are far more memorable than others. Researchers discovered our memories are wired into neural networks that allow the brain to search for these memories, much like the way search engines track down relevant information.
A new study reveals the effects of a night binge drinking may last a little longer than we think. Researchers report cognitive impairments, memory deficits and problems with psychomotor skills are still present the day after, when there is little to no alcohol left in the blood stream.
Researchers investigate why two people who experience the same event often have different memories of what occurred.
Inducing gamma oscillations with visual stimulation via a process known as gamma entrainment using sensory stimuli, or GENUS, was shown to reduce amyloid plaques and phosphorylated tau in mouse models of dementia. Providing GENUS daily during the early stages of neurodegeneration helps preserve neural and synaptic density across multiple brain areas and improves cognitive performance for learning and spatial memory tasks.
Were we as hedonistic as we remember as teens? Most likely not. Researchers look at how we recall memories of our past years and how our youthful experiences helped us form our current identities.
The connectivity between the face processing network and other networks associated with the processing of visual, social and auditory cues help predict how well we remember a familiar face.
An increase in theta oscillations in the hippocampus help make learning and subsequent memory more efficient.
Researchers report hearing impairment is associated with an increased rate of cognitive decline as we age. However, the study revealed the impact of hearing loss on cognition was lessened for those who had a college level education.
