Study finds part of the category knowledge is already present in the early visual brain areas, revealing how widespread semantic memories are stored throughout the brain.
Researchers reveal the neurobiological basis of why we often find it more difficult to find the right words as we age.
Reduction of semantic memory could be an indicator of Alzheimer's disease 12 years before onset. Researchers examine different types of memory loss associated with dementia.
While memories become less vibrant and detailed over time, the central gist of the memory is preserved.
Acute exercise in older adults has a positive impact on brain regions associated with memory and recall. Older adults who engaged in acute exercise had greater activation in the temporal gyrus, fusiform gyrus and hippocampus, resulting in increased semantic memory activation.
Researchers have identified specific brain networks that helps us associate objects with their names. The study sheds light on how the brain connects meaning to words and could help explain why people with neurodegenerative diseases often have problems naming every day objects.
Study reveals both similarities and differences in how the left and right sides of the brain process semantic memory.
A new study reports the MIND diet can help reduce risks for developing Alzheimer's disease and may also slow brain aging by almost eight years.
