Component neural systems for the creation of emotional memories during free viewing of a complex, real-world event.
(Frontiers in Human Neuroscience, 2010)
Effects of the dietary approaches to stop hypertension diet, exercise, and caloric restriction on neurocognition in overweight adults with high blood pressure.
High blood pressure increases the risks of stroke, dementia, and neurocognitive dysfunction. Although aerobic exercise and dietary modifications have been shown to reduce blood pressure, no randomized trials have examined ...
Component Neural Systems for the Creation of Emotional Memories during Free Viewing of a Complex, Real-World Event.
(Front Hum Neurosci, 2010)
To investigate the neural systems that contribute to the formation of complex, self-relevant emotional memories, dedicated fans of rival college basketball teams watched a competitive game while undergoing functional magnetic ...
Pinning down response inhibition in the brain--conjunction analyses of the Stop-signal task.
Successful behavior requires a finely-tuned interplay of initiating and inhibiting motor programs to react effectively to constantly changing environmental demands. One particularly useful paradigm for investigating inhibitory ...
Staying cool when things get hot: emotion regulation modulates neural mechanisms of memory encoding.
(Front Hum Neurosci, 2010)
During times of emotional stress, individuals often engage in emotion regulation to reduce the experiential and physiological impact of negative emotions. Interestingly, emotion regulation strategies also influence memory ...
Hegel and Dessalines: Philosophy and the African Diaspora
(New West Indian Guide, 2010)
Differences in the cognitive skills of bonobos and chimpanzees.
(PLoS One, 2010-08-27)
While bonobos and chimpanzees are both genetically and behaviorally very similar, they also differ in significant ways. Bonobos are more cautious and socially tolerant while chimpanzees are more dependent on extractive foraging, ...
Aerobic exercise and neurocognitive performance: a meta-analytic review of randomized controlled trials.
(Psychosom Med, 2010-04)
OBJECTIVES: To assess the effects of aerobic exercise training on neurocognitive performance. Although the effects of exercise on neurocognition have been the subject of several previous reviews and meta-analyses, they have ...
Scan-rescan reliability of subcortical brain volumes derived from automated segmentation.
(Hum Brain Mapp, 2010-11)
Large-scale longitudinal studies of regional brain volume require reliable quantification using automated segmentation and labeling. However, repeated MR scanning of the same subject, even if using the same scanner ...
Comparison of gain-like properties of eye position signals in inferior colliculus versus auditory cortex of primates.
(Frontiers in integrative neuroscience, 2010-01)
We evaluated to what extent the influence of eye position in the auditory pathway of primates can be described as a gain field. We compared single unit activity in the inferior colliculus (IC), core auditory cortex (A1) ...
