MEG neuroimaging implicates the occipital place area (OPA) in our ability to rapidly sense our surroundings. The findings may advance improving machine learning and robotics technology aimed at mimicking visual processes in the human brain.
Language difficulties associated with primary progressive aphasia differ depending on a person's native language, a new study reports. Native English speakers with PPA have more trouble pronouncing words, while those who speak Italian had fewer pronunciation problems but tend to produce shorter and grammatically simpler sentences.
People with primary progressive aphasia who have difficulty producing complex words as a result of their condition, compensate by stringing together a sequence of simpler words to convey the idea they wish to express.
