Rachael Cage's insight:

It is amazing to think of what else it yet to be discovered with the brain! It is nearly impossible to comprehend what this implies for further research into what our brians can do without our knowledge of it actually doing these things. This could impact cognitve psychology massively.

Dietary Amino Acids Relieve Sleep Problems After Traumatic Brain Injury in Animals | Neuroscience News | Cognitive Psychology | Scoop.it
Administering a cocktail of amino acids to mice models of TBI, researchers improved sleep disturbances caused by the brain injuries.
Rachael Cage's insight:

It would be a massive step in treating traumatic brain injuries if these findings also occured in humans. This could improve the lives of so many people with traumatic brain injuries. This is a very interesting study and article.

Study: High Standardized Test Scores Don't Translate to Better Cognition | Cognitive Psychology | Scoop.it
Improved test scores were not associated with better memory, speed or attention skills. (A new study found that high standardized test scores don't translate into better cognitive ability via @usnews.
Rachael Cage's insight:

I agree with the assumption that standardised test scores don't reflect cognition. However, at this moment in time is there a better way to test cognition? There are flaws with this system, however we do need a way of testing cognition and this may give at least some indication of the levels of cognition that current student have in education.

Self-control enhanced by tiny electrical charge to the brain: study - SlashGear

Self-control enhanced by tiny electrical charge to the brain: study - SlashGear | Cognitive Psychology | Scoop.it
A small study has shown with some certainty that self-control can be enhanced by applying electrical stimulation to the brain.
Rachael Cage's insight:

It would be interesting to see the effects of the electrical charges not only on those who do not have epilepsy, but also the effects on those who have OCD or Tourette syndrome. Hopefully, there will be further research on this matter.
