Study shows children and birds learn alike

by Dr. Jekyll in Lunatic Laboratories

Your child is your pride and joy — and why not, every parent should be a proud one, even if your child might be bird brained. Or maybe birds are baby brained? In any case, a new study has found that pigeons can categorize and name both natural and manmade objects–and not just a few objects. These birds categorized 128 photographs into 16 categories, and they did so simultaneously.... Read more »

The Psychology of Procrastination: How We Create Categories of the Future

by Jalees Rehman in Fragments of Truth

Paying bills, filling out forms, completing class assignments or submitting grant proposals – we all have the tendency to procrastinate. We may engage in trivial activities such as watching TV shows, playing video games or chatting for an hour and risk missing important deadlines by putting off tasks that are essential for our financial and professional security. Not all humans are equally prone to procrastination, and a recent study suggests that this may in part be due to the fact that t........ Read more »

Researchers discover viral ‘Enigma machine’

by Dr. Jekyll in Lunatic Laboratories

Antibiotics are for infections, vaccines are for viruses, and unfortunately both bacteria AND viruses mutate. So when someone has AIDS for example it is hard to fight since a vaccine would be hard to produce given how rapidly it evolves. Well now researchers may be one step closer to solving the problem since they have cracked a code that governs infections by a major group of viruses which includes the common cold and polio....

The trouble with tDCS? Electrical brain stimulation may not work after all

by BPS Research Digest in BPS Research Digest

By guest blogger NeuroskepticA widely-used brain stimulation technique may be less effective than previously believed.Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) is an increasingly popular neuroscience tool. tDCS involves attaching electrodes to the scalp, through which a weak electrical current flows. The idea is that this current modulates the activity of the brain tissue underneath the electrode - safely and painlessly.Outside of the neuroscience lab, tDCS is also used by hobbyists looking........

Exercise in the Elderly: BDNF and Executive Function

by William Yates, M.D. in Brain Posts

Exercise promotes cognitive function in children, adults and elderly individuals.The mechanism for this effect is unclear. Some of the effect may be due to a general improvement in vascular function and health.Another potential mechanism is via increased neuroplasticity mediated by neurotrophic factors.Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BNDF) is a known contributor to brain neuroplasticity. Levels of BNDF can be determined with serum assays.RL Leckie and colleagues recently found support for BND........ Read more »

An Immovable Moving Part- That’s Just Cilia!

by Mark Lasbury in As Many Exceptions As Rules

Could a broken cilium be important to us? You bet, they control every part of our lives. And some aren’t even cilia; sterocilia are made completely differently, but the diseases of cilia affect sterocilia as well – they can make you blind, deaf and unbalanced.... Read more »
