Researchers measured how brain waves travel in the prefrontal cortex during working memory tasks.
Using a line of genetically modified mice, researchers discover boosting acetylcholine can disturb cognitive function.
Activity in the frontoparietal network during memory tasks reflected the individual working memory capabilities of children, with an activity pattern unique to working memory.
Researchers report synchrony of brain waves within three regions of the brain can 'break down' when visual working memory load becomes too extensive to handle.
Working memory isn't confined to one area of the brain. It requires synchronous activity of at least two brain areas.
Researchers report, contrary to popular belief, Adderall and other ADHD drugs do not improve cognition in healthy college students. Instead, they may impair cognitive function.
Researchers have developed a new machine learning algorithm that can identify clusters of learning difficulties which did not match the previous diagnosis children had been given.
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.
Blocking it stumps memory-guided decision-making in rats – NIH-funded study Awake mental replay of past experiences is essential for making...
Early life exposure to greenspace may result in beneficial structural changes in the developing brain, researchers report. The study found children who grew up in areas surrounded by greenspace had better working memory and were more attentive than those who lived in more urban environments.
