Researchers discovered that neural activity in the left ventral temporoparietal junction (vTPJ) and the lateral anterior temporal lobe (lATL) during sentence processing is tied to social-semantic working memory. Previously, these regions were attributed to general language processing. Using fMRI experiments, the study demonstrated that these regions respond to sentences with social meaning and maintain activity even after the linguistic stimulus is gone. This insight reshapes our understanding of the brain's cortical language network.
A new study reveals that fathers engaging in interactive activities with their children, such as reading and playing, significantly improve their kids' primary school performance. Analysis of the Millennium Cohort Study showed children of involved dads performed better by ages five and seven.
Researchers have utilized advanced machine learning techniques to unveil the neural structure linked to narcissism, overcoming previous study limitations. Employing Kernel Ridge Regression and Support Vector Regression, they predicted narcissistic personality traits based on brain organization and other personality aspects.
