How Memories Are Linked in the Brain

Some memories just seem to go together. Think about an important experience in your life. You may also closely remember another experience that happened around that time too, like exchanging vows at your wedding, and then your friend’s epic dance moves later that same night. Somehow these two memories seem to be linked in your mind.

How Words Are Represented in the Brain

Using direct neural recordings from the visual word form area, researchers were able to see words that patients read as the patients read them.

The research is in PNAS. (full open access)

Relation of orthographic anologue to the activity of lmFG is quite an evidence of how words are interpreted and represented in brain. Though the hypothesis still need an accurate fully worked out mechanism by linking all the fragments in one piece to make it clear to general public.

Should I Stay or Should I Go? Understanding Possible Triggers for OCD and ADHD

What makes these people incapable of controlling their most everyday voluntary motions - and in some cases, their thoughts - thus enslaving them in endless repetition of the same action, or in endless change from one action to another?

The research is in Cell. (full access paywall)

Applying a New Imaging Tool to Common Brain Disorders

A Yale-led team of researchers developed a new approach to scanning the brain for changes in synapses that are associated with common brain disorders. The technique may provide insights into the diagnosis and treatment of a broad range of disorders, including epilepsy and Alzheimer’s disease.

The research is in Science Translational Medicine. (full access paywall)

Background Noise May Hinder Toddlers' Ability to Learn Words

The environments children are in, including how much and what kinds of stimulation they are exposed to, influence what and how they learn. One important task for children is zeroing in on the information that's relevant to what they're learning and ignoring what isn't. A new study has found that the presence of background noise in the home or at school makes it more difficult for toddlers to learn new words. The study also found that providing additional language cues may help young children overcome the effects of noisy environments.

The research is in Child Development. (full open access)

I presume more children grow up in a city. The background noise in the city mainly are generated from machines and traffic. These type of noises didn't discuss in this research. Not sure those noise will have same effect.
