Females offspring whose mothers experienced maternal immune activation while pregnant displayed an array of behavioral abnormalities associated with schizophrenia.
Alpha and theta oscillations move rhythmically across the brain, reflecting neural activity propagating across the cortex to help form working memory, a new study reports.
A new study reports adults who survived posterior fossa brain tumors as children have lower working memory performance than healthy adults.
Researchers report a strong working memory can counter a pessimistic outlook.
Researchers find evidence of the neural efficiency effect in a group of people with above average intelligence when completing working memory tasks.
Non-invasive electrostimulation restores working memory in 70-year-olds, allowing for comparable to cognitive abilities to those of 20-year-olds. The technology increases neural synchronization patterns and information flow between frontotemporal regions of the brain. This results in rapid improvements of working memory in older people, which lasted for more than 50 minutes post stimulation. The findings offer new hope to those suffering age-related memory impairments.
