Studying human fertility and environmental exposures.
(Environ Health Perspect, 2004-08)
Brain activity during episodic retrieval of autobiographical and laboratory events: an fMRI study using a novel photo paradigm.
(J Cogn Neurosci, 2004-11)
Functional neuroimaging studies of episodic memory retrieval generally measure brain activity while participants remember items encountered in the laboratory ("controlled laboratory condition") or events from their own life ...
Methodologic and statistical approaches to studying human fertility and environmental exposure.
(Environ Health Perspect, 2004-01)
Although there has been growing concern about the effects of environmental exposures on human fertility, standard epidemiologic study designs may not collect sufficient data to identify subtle effects while properly adjusting ...
Learned birdsong and the neurobiology of human language.
(Ann N Y Acad Sci, 2004-06)
Vocal learning, the substrate for human language, is a rare trait found to date in only three distantly related groups of mammals (humans, bats, and cetaceans) and three distantly related groups of birds (parrots, hummingbirds, ...
Puzzling thoughts for H. M.: can new semantic information be anchored to old semantic memories?
Researchers currently debate whether new semantic knowledge can be learned and retrieved despite extensive damage to medial temporal lobe (MTL) structures. The authors explored whether H. M., a patient with amnesia, could ...
Cultural life scripts structure recall from autobiographical memory.
(Mem Cognit, 2004-04)
Three classes of evidence demonstrate the existence of life scripts, or culturally shared representations of the timing of major transitional life events. First, a reanalysis of earlier studies on age norms shows an increase ...
Autobiographical memories of anxiety-related experiences.
(Behav Res Ther, 2004-03)
Ninety-nine undergraduate students retrieved three memories associated with each of the five emotional experiences: panic, trauma, worry, social anxiety, and feeling content. Subsequently, they answered 24 questions assessing ...
Emotional intensity predicts autobiographical memory experience.
(Mem Cognit, 2004-10)
College students generated autobiographical memories from distinct emotional categories that varied in valence (positive vs. negative) and intensity (high vs. low). They then rated various perceptual, cognitive, and emotional ...
Stability in autobiographical memories.
A total of 30 undergraduates recalled the same 20 autobiographical memories at two sessions separated by 2 weeks. At each session they dated their memories and rated them on 18 properties commonly studied in autobiographical ...
Identifying corollary discharges for movement in the primate brain.
(Prog Brain Res, 2004)
The brain keeps track of the movements it makes so as to process sensory input accurately and coordinate complex movements gracefully. In this chapter we review the brain's strategies for keeping track of fast, saccadic ...
