Early motor skills may affect language development

Early motor skills may affect language development | Cognitive Psychology. Cognitive and behavioural Neuroscience | Scoop.it
Learning to sit up, crawl and walk are all major milestones in a child's early development – and parents often record these actions in baby diaries, photographs and videos. Developing motor skills allows the child to become more independent. But our research, backing a number of other studies, has ...

Neuropsychology: Power naps produce a significant improvement in memory performance

Neuropsychology: Power naps produce a significant improvement in memory performance | Cognitive Psychology. Cognitive and behavioural Neuroscience | Scoop.it
Psychologists have shown that a short nap lasting about an hour can significantly improve memory performance. The study involved examination of memory recall in 41 participants. The volunteers had to learn single words and word pairs. Once the learning phase was over, the participants were tested to determine how much information they could remember. About half of the participants were then allowed to sleep, while the others watched a DVD. After that, the participants were re-tested and those wh

The result is a neural network that can recognise faces accurately. But that’s not all. The network also displays many of the idiosyncratic properties of face recognition in humans and monkeys, for example, the inability to recognise faces easily when they are upside down.

Scientists Make Monkeys Smarter Using Brain Implants - Could You Be Next?

Scientists Make Monkeys Smarter Using Brain Implants - Could You Be Next? | Cognitive Psychology. Cognitive and behavioural Neuroscience | Scoop.it
For the very first time, scientists have demonstrated that a brain implant can improve thinking ability in primates. By implanting an electrode array into the cerebral cortex of monkeys, researchers were able to restore — and even improve — their decision-making abilities. The implications for possible therapies are far-reaching, including potential treatments for cognitive disorders and brain injuries.But there’s also the possibility that this could lead to implants that could boost your intelligence.
