Less Pain for Learning Gain

Written by Wendy Leopold – Northwestern University

Scientists long have recognized that many perceptual skills important for language comprehension and reading can be enhanced through practice. Now research from Northwestern University suggests a new way of training that could reduce by at least half the effort previously thought necessary to make learning gains. The research also may be the first behavioral demonstration of metaplasticity — the idea that experiences that on their own do not generate learning can influence how effective later experiences are at generating learning.

Gene Linked to ADHD Allows Memory Task to Be Interrupted By Brain Regions Tied to Daydreaming

Written Karen Mallet (Georgetown University Medical Center)

Neuroscientists at Georgetown University Medical Center (GUMC) say brain scans show that a gene nominally linked to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) leads to increased interference by brain regions associated with mind wandering during mental tasks. Presented at the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience, these researchers believe their findings are the first to show, through brain scanning, the differences in brain network relationships between individuals with this particular form of gene and others with a different form.

Brain Imaging Identifies Differences in Childhood Bipolar Disorder, ADHD

Written by University of Illinois at Chicago

Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago are the first to use brain imaging to examine the effects of emotion on working memory function in children with pediatric bipolar disorder or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. The study is published in the October issue of the Journal of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry. PBD and ADHD are very severe developmental disorders that share behavioral characteristics such as impulsivity, irritability and attention problems.
