Lift weights, improve your memory

Study finds that one short bout of resistance exercise can enhance episodic memory

Here’s another reason why it’s a good idea to hit the gym: it can improve memory. A new Georgia Institute of Technology study shows that an intense workout of as little as 20 minutes can enhance episodic memory, also known as long-term memory for previous events, by about 10 percent in healthy young adults.

Do you want to know more about the first-ever study to map whole-brain connectivity in dyslexic readers. Neuroimaging study shows disrupted networks in the brain of dyslexic readers. Thoughts health innovators? http://bit.ly/1qaQCrn

Dyslexia, the most commonly diagnosed learning disability in the United States, is a neurological reading disability that occurs when the regions of the brain that process written language don’t function normally.

[ARTICLE] Modeling the effects of noninvasive transcranial brain stimulation at the biophysical, network, and cognitive Level

Abstract Noninvasive transcranial brain stimulation (NTBS) is widely used to elucidate the contribution of different brain regions to various cognitive functions. Here we present three modeling approaches that are informed by functional or structural brain mapping or behavior profiling and discuss how these approaches advance the scientific potential of NTBS as an interventional tool in cognitive…

i know the real reason for this now but initially i really struggled with the idea that someone thought it absolutely essential that “functional magnetic resonance imaging” –aka fMRI– had to include the “functional” part

it’s taking pictures of my brain that form the basis of doctors’ diagnoses of what’s wrong with me

like i really hope it's functional

Michio Kaku: ‘We are Now Entering a Golden Age of Neuroscience’

We have learned more about the thinking brain in the last 10-15 years than in all of previous human history.

“There may come a day when the Internet might be replaced by a Brain-net, in which emotions, sensations, memories and thoughts are sent over the Internet.”

Michio Kaku writes: More than a billion people were amazed this summer when a 29-year-old paraplegic man from Brazil raised his right…

[Dissertation] BRAIN CONNECTIVITY CHANGES AFTER STROKE AND REHABILITATION – Full Text PDF

ABSTRACT Several cortical and subcortical areas of brain interact coherently during various tasks such as motor-imagery (MI) and motor-execution (ME) and even during resting-state (RS). How these interactions are affected following stroke and how the functional organization is regained from rehabilitative treatments as people begin to recover have not been systematically studied. Role of primary…

In a painless clinical procedure performed on a patient with electrodes temporarily implanted in his brain, Stanford University doctors pinpointed two nerve clusters that are critical for face perception. The findings could have practical value in treating people with prosopagnosia – the inability to distinguish one face from another – as well in gaining an understanding of why some of us are so much better than others at recognizing and remembering faces.

Combined noninvasive language mapping by navigated transcranial magnetic stimulation and functional MRI and its comparison with direct cortical stimulation

J Neurosurg 123:212–225, 2015 Repetitive navigated transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is now increasingly used for preoperative language mapping in patients with lesions in language-related areas of the brain.

A team from Brigham Young University have devised experiments using MRI technology that help them distinguish pure imagination from related processes like remembering.  The team wanted to investigate how memory and imagination work together.

There has always been a scientific debate over whether memory and imagination truly are distinct processes. So the team devised MRI experiments to put it to…

Brain imaging explains reason for good, poor language outcomes in ASD toddlers

Brain imaging explains reason for good, poor language outcomes in ASD toddlers

Original post from Science Daily

‘…………

Date: April 9, 2015 Source: University of California, San Diego Health Sciences Summary: Using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), researchers say it may be possible to predict future language development outcomes in toddlers with autistic spectrum disorder (ASD), even before they’ve been formally diagnosed with the condition.

When did I leave? I think your misinterpreting which is fiction (advertisements/marketing/social-media) as real world- when in fact it is you and I, black and white, day and night. Immortality is only in words. Thoughts craft words and move quicker than the speed of light you mix ‘em all together & you can get to the bottom of something ppl wish there was an off button for it but I’m a glutton for punishment kid, there’s not a single thing that makes sense watch watt he says it’s language muxing cultural references, Skeptical Narcissistic Nihilistic Paranoid fantasies woven by man onto other men and worn like cheap cologne by every Chav from Chatsworth to Chaltham…

Umm ye so wat? Ptoo! If its a spitting competition I’ll employ Ifrit to shift quick and hit miss with fire from a wrist it’s dire how I live on the wire higher bliss these distractions are trivial pursuits, get back to ur roots ull see I’m speaking the truth, uncouth rogues stroll through droll whorls, I’m calling ur cards girl no bluffing, betrayals fail lost Jonah to a whale tore dragon scales from my face call me eustace its useless yet essential I’m too fast, experimental, clash of the titans might run still haven’t fully understood the definition of Wing Tsun

Ah and that’s where one finds her antithesis, see simplicity is mixed into this, with three wishes spent on rent water and heat what goods it do to have a Robin’s song warble, head sore still? I’m boring, hoarding defeats, scoring off geeks every day of the week I play while they sleep they give and I take I’m in charge no mistake every days my page and I take my cues how I like em, squiggly brown grooves, spill that weed grab a lighter, snatched Krushems from behind the counter now been found guilty proud; simply, bow to a Queen, me? So polite see, deen, unseen, so unlikely, what’ya mean where’ve we been that’s right we’re them freaks of the week with excited speech about the perils of sleep so dreaming awake in this state it’s a mistake to forget ones a being with a fate see i’m peddling Penny Farthing sweets, try a half thing, it’s like eating fresh meat when your starving, laughing i’m gassing, glassy get rassed b stay classy and trashy while stealing their cash me I’m dealing these cards quick time healing these wards til Excalibur’s pulled from the stone I’ll chill on this throne keeping the seat warm with misguided beats formed from speaking deep with elite sweeps of a reapers scythe, am I being trite? No need to fear life. I’m writing these right now so you can see its a pattern, I’m not into fighting so please don’t feel the need to reply once everythings been said and done there’s only room for one Sun in the sky The Moon chases at night I can even look at ways to CAPITALISE oh gosh real talk do you see cash in his eyes that slick quick Paki prick that ghost writes every bodies lines like inception except it’s exactly like The Matrix,
got them lot so basic they lost patience “What’s Up Doc?” got bare stocked up
Celery n Broccoli Soup for one please last time there was a fly in this waiter.
