A new study reports a short burst of exercise can dramatically improve long term retention of new motor skills.
Findings raise more questions about the origins of human cognition.
A new study of the genetic factors associated with ASD draws attention to the impact autism can have on motor skills and cognitive function.
Primates with larger brains can solve much more complex tasks using their hands than smaller-brained primates. However, improved dexterity comes at a cost. In humans and other large-brained primates, it takes longer for infants to learn the simplest hand and finger movements than our smaller-brained counterparts.
Researchers report boys with better motor skills tend to have higher cognitive scores over a two year follow up period than those with poorer motor skills. Additionally, boys with higher aerobic fitness had poorer cognition during the two year follow up than those with lower fitness levels.
A new study identifies a possible biomarker for predicting whether preterm infants are at risk for developing motor developmental problems.
A new study considers the effect on an unborn child if its mother frequently uses a cell phone. Researchers did not find a neurodevelopmental risk for children of mothers who used cell phones, instead they noted some beneficial effects for language development and motor skills.
A new study reports that making changes during repeat practice sessions helps people to learn a new skill faster.
