The effect of cannabis on cognitive functioning is being explored for short and long-term effects. Recent studies have shown conflicting results, with some showing no significant effects and others showing neuropsychological impairment. Discover the latest research on cannabis and cognition here.
The midbrain dopamine system is widely studied for its involvement in emotional and motivational behavior. Some of these neurons receive information from the amygdala and project throughout the cortex. When the circuit and transmission of dopamine is disrupted symptoms may present. Here is the latest research on the amygdala and midbrain dopamine.
Aphasia affects the ability to process language, including formulation and comprehension of language and speech, as well as the ability to read or write. Here is the latest research on aphasia.
Basal forebrain is a region in the brain important for production of acetylcholine and is the major cholinergic output of the CNS. Discover the latest research on circuits in the basal forebrain here.
Here is the latest research on intrinsic and extrinsic factors, as well as pathways and mechanisms that underlie aging in the central nervous system.
A brain-computer interface, also known as a brain-machine interface, is a bi-directional communication pathway between an external device and a wired brain. Here is the latest research on this topic.
Temporal processing is the rate at which we can process auditory stimuli. It helps us process speech and localize a sound source. Here is the latest research on cognition and temporal processing.
This feed focuses on the role of environmental and genetic factors including environmental policies, disease susceptibility, and socioeconomic status on cognitive decline. Here is the latest research.
Cognitive neuroscience is the study of biological processes that underlie cognition and addresses the role of neural circuits in regulating cognitive activities. Here is the latest research.
This feed focuses on complex memory functions, including remote memory, recognition memory, and spatial cognition. Here is the latest research.
While abilities like vocabulary resist aging, other abilities such as memory, decision-making, and reasoning, gradually decline. Here is the latest research on decision-making and cognitive aging.
