Researchers have developed a new intervention program that promotes the learning of math to school-aged children. More than half the children who entered the ACE-ArithmEcole program were better able to solve complex math problems, compared to 29% who were not exposed to the new method.
Researchers say those over 60 are better at predicting stressful events at home than younger people. However, younger people are better at utilizing these predictions to minimize the adverse impact of stress.
Neuroimaging study sheds light on what drove the evolutionary development of human creativity.
A new study reveals birds can learn how to use objects to solve tasks by first playing with them.

In terms of general intelligence, rocket scientists and brain surgeons are no smarter than the general population, researchers report.
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.
Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) can be used to modulate brain rhythms and cognitive behaviors related to "giving up" during problem-solving tasks.
Knowing when your train of thought is off track is central to finding the correct answer while problem-solving.
