Validation of the Sleep Regularity Index in Older Adults and Associations with Cardiometabolic Risk.
(Scientific reports, 2018-09-21)
Sleep disturbances, including insufficient sleep duration and circadian misalignment, confer risk for cardiometabolic disease. Less is known about the association between the regularity of sleep/wake schedules and cardiometabolic ...
Pre-Pregnancy Weight and Symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Executive Functioning Behaviors in Preschool Children.
(International journal of environmental research and public health, 2019-02-25)
This study examines pre-pregnancy Body Mass Index (BMI) and gestational weight gain (GWG) in relation to early childhood Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) symptoms and related executive self-regulation behaviors. ...
Probing Computation in the Primate Visual System at Single-Cone Resolution.
(Annual review of neuroscience, 2019-03-11)
Daylight vision begins when light activates cone photoreceptors in the retina, creating spatial patterns of neural activity. These cone signals are then combined and processed in downstream neural circuits, ultimately producing ...
Cannabinoid exposure and altered DNA methylation in rat and human sperm.
Little is known about the reproductive effects of paternal cannabis exposure. We evaluated associations between cannabis or tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) exposure and altered DNA methylation in sperm from humans and ...
Strategic allocation of attention reduces temporally predictable stimulus conflict.
(J Cogn Neurosci, 2012-09)
Humans are able to continuously monitor environmental situations and adjust their behavioral strategies to optimize performance. Here we investigate the behavioral and brain adjustments that occur when conflicting stimulus ...
"I Use Weed for My ADHD": A Qualitative Analysis of Online Forum Discussions on Cannabis Use and ADHD.
(PLoS One, 2016)
BACKGROUND: Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a risk factor for problematic cannabis use. However, clinical and anecdotal evidence suggest an increasingly popular perception that cannabis is therapeutic ...
Bird song systems: Evolution
This article presents the vocal and auditory pathways of vocal-learning birds and a hypothesis about their evolution. These pathways control the ability to produce learned song in the few groups of birds that have vocal ...
PhenX RISING: real world implementation and sharing of PhenX measures.
(BMC Med Genomics, 2014-03-20)
BACKGROUND: The purpose of this manuscript is to describe the PhenX RISING network and the site experiences in the implementation of PhenX measures into ongoing population-based genomic studies. METHODS: Eighty PhenX measures ...
The dynamics of proactive and reactive cognitive control processes in the human brain.
(J Cogn Neurosci, 2014-05)
In this study, we leveraged the high temporal resolution of EEG to examine the neural mechanisms underlying the flexible regulation of cognitive control that unfolds over different timescales. We measured behavioral and ...
Distinct aspects of frontal lobe structure mediate age-related differences in fluid intelligence and multitasking
