Long-term memory consolidation and short-term memory processes that occur during sleep do so at a cost to one another.
A new computational algorithm shows how the brain maintains information in the short term using specific types of neurons.
Objects are not only represented in one form of short term memory but in several forms simultaneously.
Heavy metal music may have a bad reputation, but a new study reveals the music has positive mental health benefits for its fans.
A recurrent neural network algorithm demonstrates short-term synaptic plasticity can support short term maintenance of information, providing the memory delay period is sufficiently short.
A new study reveals maternal diet during pregnancy can have dramatic implications for fetal brain development and can impact short term memory in adults.
Brain responses from 6 month old infants with an inherited dyslexia risk differed from those without the risk factor and also predicted their reading ability later in childhood, a new study reveals.
A new Scientific Reports study reveals alcohol may have a surprising effect on learning and memory. Researchers found those who drank alcohol following a learned word task had better recollection of the terms they learned the next day than those who did not drink.
A new study from the University of Exeter adds to growing evidence that embarking on daily challenging puzzles can help protect brain function later in life. Researchers report older people who complete a daily crossword have brain function equivalent to people ten years their junior when it comes to grammatical reasoning and short term memory accuracy.
According to researchers, the key to retaining information is to relate it to something meaningful rather than to repeat it parrot fashion.
