Stability in autobiographical memories
FoxP2 expression in avian vocal learners and non-learners.
(J Neurosci, 2004-03-31)
Most vertebrates communicate acoustically, but few, among them humans, dolphins and whales, bats, and three orders of birds, learn this trait. FOXP2 is the first gene linked to human speech and has been the target of positive ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Facets of personality and the phenomenology of autobiographical memory
(Applied Cognitive Psychology, 2004-11-01)
The relationship between individual differences in autobiographical memory and personality was examined by having 118 undergraduates complete the NEO Personality Inventory after rating 15 word-cued autobiographical memories ...
The ‘language’ and ‘feel’ of bilingual memory: Mnemonic traces
(Estudios de Sociolingüística, 2004)
Revised nomenclature for avian telencephalon and some related brainstem nuclei.
(J Comp Neurol, 2004-05-31)
The standard nomenclature that has been used for many telencephalic and related brainstem structures in birds is based on flawed assumptions of homology to mammals. In particular, the outdated terminology implies that most ...
Differential expression of glutamate receptors in avian neural pathways for learned vocalization.
(J Comp Neurol, 2004-08-09)
Learned vocalization, the substrate for human language, is a rare trait. It is found in three distantly related groups of birds-parrots, hummingbirds, and songbirds. These three groups contain cerebral vocal nuclei for learned ...
