Un videojuego que retrasa la demencia, científicamente demostrado | Autismo | Scoop.it

Mejor que un crucigrama y que cualquier otro videojuego en tres dimensiones. Así es como define un grupo de investigadores de la Universidad de California (San Francisco, EEUU) su nuevo hallazgo: NeuroRacer. Se trata de un videojuego específicamente diseñado para prevenir el deterioro cognitivo de la edad y que, por primera vez, se presenta con pruebas científicas que avalan su eficacia, plasmadas en la revista 'Nature'.

Gina Stepp's curator insight, May 22, 2013 1:33 PM

"Findings show there is a key relationship between moral judgment and empathic concern in particular, specifically feelings of warmth and compassion in response to someone in distress. In a series of experiments, utilitarian moral judgment was revealed to be specifically associated with reduced empathic concern, and not with any of the demographic or cultural variables tested, nor with other aspects of empathic responding, including personal distress and perspective taking."

Consciousness in humans and non-human animals: Recent advances and future directions

This joint article reflects the authors’ personal views regarding noteworthy advances in the neuroscience of consciousness in the last ten years, and suggests what we feel may be promising future directions. (...) we summarize recent advances in our understanding of subjectivity in humans and other animals, including empirical, applied, technical and conceptual insights. These include the evidence for the importance of fronto-parietal connectivity and of feedback processes, both of which enable information to travel across distant cortical areas effectively, as well as numerous dissociations between consciousness and cognitive functions, such as attention, in humans. In addition, we describe the development of mental imagery paradigms, which made it possible to identify covert awareness in non-responsive subjects. Non-human animal consciousness research has also witnessed substantial advances on the specific role of cortical areas and higher order thalamus for consciousness, thanks to important technological advances. In addition, much progress has been made in the understanding of non-vertebrate cognition relevant to possible conscious states. Finally, major advances have been made in theories of consciousness, and also in their comparison with the available evidence. Along with reviewing these findings, each author suggests future avenues for research in their field of investigation.

Can Kids Feel Your Pain?

Can Kids Feel Your Pain? | Autismo | Scoop.it

Research has shown that when adults see someone else getting hurt, their brain responds as if they themselves are suffering—compelling evidence for the deep roots of human empathy. Now, a new study indicates that children’s brains react in much the same way, suggesting that the roots of empathy may even be innate.

When these boys watched videos of a person hurting someone else, their brains showed activity in areas associated with reward processing, suggesting that they may actually enjoy seeing other people being hurt. According to Decety, such insights into empathic and bullying behavior may help identify strategies for treating children with aggressive tendencies.

This is especially significant because helping behaviors, or "prosocial skills" are one of the "core competencies" for positive child development, reducing the likelihood of risky behaviors in the teen years.
