The Rational Adolescent: Strategic Information Processing during Decision Making Revealed by Eye Tracking.
(Cogn Dev, 2015-10)
Adolescence is often viewed as a time of irrational, risky decision-making - despite adolescents' competence in other cognitive domains. In this study, we examined the strategies used by adolescents (N=30) and young adults ...
Platelet aggregation and mental stress induced myocardial ischemia: Results from the Responses of Myocardial Ischemia to Escitalopram Treatment (REMIT) study.
(Am Heart J, 2015-04)
BACKGROUND: Mental stress-induced myocardial ischemia (MSIMI) is common in patients with ischemic heart disease (IHD) and associated with a poorer cardiovascular prognosis. Platelet hyperactivity is an important factor in ...
The PsychENCODE project.
(Nat Neurosci, 2015-12)
Citizen Science as a New Tool in Dog Cognition Research.
(PLoS One, 2015)
Family dogs and dog owners offer a potentially powerful way to conduct citizen science to answer questions about animal behavior that are difficult to answer with more conventional approaches. Here we evaluate the quality ...
Improvement in visual search with practice: mapping learning-related changes in neurocognitive stages of processing.
(J Neurosci, 2015-04-01)
Practice can improve performance on visual search tasks; the neural mechanisms underlying such improvements, however, are not clear. Response time typically shortens with practice, but which components of the stimulus-response ...
A Pharmacology-Based Enrichment Program for Undergraduates Promotes Interest in Science.
(CBE Life Sci Educ, 2015)
There is a strong need to increase the number of undergraduate students who pursue careers in science to provide the "fuel" that will power a science and technology-driven U.S. economy. Prior research suggests that both ...
A wirelessly controlled implantable LED system for deep brain optogenetic stimulation.
(Front Integr Neurosci, 2015)
In recent years optogenetics has rapidly become an essential technique in neuroscience. Its temporal and spatial specificity, combined with efficacy in manipulating neuronal activity, are especially useful in studying the ...
Association between increased magnetic susceptibility of deep gray matter nuclei and decreased motor function in healthy adults.
In the human brain, iron is more prevalent in gray matter than in white matter, and deep gray matter structures, particularly the globus pallidus, putamen, caudate nucleus, substantia nigra, red nucleus, and dentate nucleus, ...
Human-chimpanzee differences in a FZD8 enhancer alter cell-cycle dynamics in the developing neocortex.
(Curr Biol, 2015-03-16)
The human neocortex differs from that of other great apes in several notable regards, including altered cell cycle, prolonged corticogenesis, and increased size [1-5]. Although these evolutionary changes most likely contributed ...
Two Distinct Moral Mechanisms for Ascribing and Denying Intentionality.
(Sci Rep, 2015-12-04)
Philosophers and legal scholars have long theorized about how intentionality serves as a critical input for morality and culpability, but the emerging field of experimental philosophy has revealed a puzzling asymmetry. People ...
