New research reveals that infants primarily learn language through rhythm rather than individual sounds, challenging traditional theories. The study emphasizes the importance of rhythmic speech patterns, like nursery rhymes, in early language development.
Recent research from the Experimental Concert Research project reveals that classical music concerts can synchronize the heartbeats and movements of the audience, demonstrating a unique connection between music and human physiology.
E-SOAM, an octopus-inspired robot arm, marks a significant advancement in soft robotics by integrating stretchable electronics for enhanced human-robot interaction. Its unique design offers dexterity and sensory feedback, mimicking octopus movements.
A study in the Journal of Neurolinguistics finds heart rate variability changes when we hear grammatical errors. This suggests a deep, measurable link between our physiological response and language understanding.
A study has found that our brain's response to stimuli is stronger during the heart's contracting phase. This insight could improve treatments for depression and stroke by aligning them with heart rhythms.
New research suggests that biological age, as indicated by DNA methylation, more significantly impacts cognitive abilities like memory and processing speed than chronological age. This finding could reshape our understanding of aging and cognitive health.
Playing "Beat Saber" in VR improved some cognitive functions, unlike physical training, according to new research. The findings suggest that VR shows promise for cognitive gains in short, engaging sessions.
A study spanning eight weeks, focusing on girls aged 11 to 14, found that weekly fluctuations in testosterone levels could predict mood changes. However, the strength and nature of this correlation varied based on theta wave activity in the frontal...
A study revealed that one-third of cardiac arrest survivors experienced consciousness, with EEG showing brain activity despite heart stoppage. This groundbreaking finding challenges current understandings of brain function during cardiac emergencies.
New study shows transcranial temporal interference electrical stimulation (tTIS) enhances motor learning when targeting deep brain areas like the striatum.
Chronic caffeine use may reduce brain plasticity, key to learning and memory, according to a study. This contrasts with expectations of caffeine enhancing cognitive abilities.
New research shows advanced glycation end products, chemicals produced from cooking foods at high temperatures, can increase hunger.
New study finds no significant difference in spatial skills between left-handers and right-handers, debunking previous theories, using data from hundred of thousands worldwide.
A new study suggests that newborns may begin language acquisition in the womb, with prenatal language exposure influencing their neural activity and potentially shaping their future language learning abilities. This groundbreaking research underscores the early foundations of language development in...
A study published in Frontiers in Psychology found that dreams where teeth fall out, break, or rot are related to dental irritation upon waking but are unrelated to psychological distress. This connection suggests that such dreams have a physical basis...
