Neuromyths in Education: Prevalence and Predictors of Misconceptions among Teachers
TLDR
Findings suggest that teachers who are enthusiastic about the possible application of neuroscience findings in the classroom find it difficult to distinguish pseudoscience from scientific facts, and possessing greater general knowledge does not appear to protect teachers from believing in neuromyths.

Rey's verbal learning test: Normative data for 1855 healthy participants aged 24–81 years and the influence of age, sex, education, and mode of presentation
TLDR
The results showed that VLT performance decreased in an age-dependent manner from an early age, and the learning capacity of younger versus older adults differed quantitatively rather than qualitatively. Expand
Regional Frontal Cortical Volumes Decrease Differentially in Aging: An MRI Study to Compare Volumetric Approaches and Voxel-Based Morphometry
TLDR
Overall, it was concluded that although semiautomated and voxel-based methods can provide a reasonable estimate of regional brain volume, they cannot serve as a substitute for manual volumetry. Expand
Cerebral white matter lesions and cognitive function: The Rotterdam scan study
TLDR
Tasks that involve speed of cognitive processes appear to be more affected by WMLs than memory tasks, and subjects with most severe periventricular W MLs performed nearly 1 SD below average on tasks involving psychomotor speed, and more than 0.5SD below average for global cognitive function. Expand
Effect of radiotherapy and other treatment-related factors on mid-term to long-term cognitive sequelae in low-grade gliomas: a comparative study
TLDR
The findings suggest that the tumour itself has the most deleterious effect on cognitive function and that radiotherapy mainly results in additional long-term cognitive disability when high fraction doses are used. Expand
Learning and retrieval rate of words presented auditorily and visually.
TLDR
An experiment was carried out using normal subjects, in which the effects of presentation mode and order of modality were investigated, and there were no differential effects of these variables on several parameters, such as the number of words recalled and the learning curve. Expand
The Letter Digit Substitution Test: Normative Data for 1,858 Healthy Participants Aged 24–81 from the Maastricht Aging Study (MAAS): Influence of Age, Education, and Sex
TLDR
The written and oral versions of the Letter Digit Substitution Test were administered to a large, cognitively screened sample of adults and the effect of a low versus high level of education on LDST performance was comparable to about 20 years of aging. Expand
A voxel-based morphometric study to determine individual differences in gray matter density associated with age and cognitive change over time.
TLDR
It is suggested that prefrontal and temporal cortical regions are of particular relevance both in aging and age-related cognitive decline in healthy, non-demented elderly individuals. Expand
The nature of the effect of female gonadal hormone replacement therapy on cognitive function in post-menopausal women: a meta-analysis
TLDR
Surprisingly, both healthy and demented women with low education seem to benefit most from HRT, and the interactions of HRT with age, menopausal status and existing protective factors for cognitive decline and Alzheimer's disease are investigated. Expand
The Stroop Color-Word Test
TLDR
The results showed that especially the speed-dependent Stroop scores, rather than the accuracy measures, were profoundly affected by the demographic variables, and suggests that executive function, as measured by the Stroop test, declines with age and that the decline is more pronounced in people with a low level of education.
