The Neurobiology of Sleep: Genetics, cellular physiology and subcortical networks

To appreciate the neural underpinnings of sleep, it is important to view this universal mammalian behaviour at multiple levels of its biological organization. Molecularly, the circadian rhythm of

Why aggregated learning follows the power law of practice when individual learning does not: comment on Rickard (1997, 1999), Delaney et al. (1998), and Palmeri (1999).

The authors empirically show that abrupt changes in performance are not necessarily based on a shift from algorithm to memory-based processing, but rather and more generally, that they occur whenever a more efficient task strategy is generated.

Motor Skills Have Diverse Neural Bases: Spared and Impaired Skill Acquisition in Huntington's Disease

The researchers suggest that the striatum plays a role when participants learn a repeating sequence of movements, but it does not contribute when they learn a new mapping between perceptual cues and the appropriate motor response.

The Transfer of Cognitive Skill

This chapter discusses transfer in the ACT and the theory of representation and transfer, as well as some examples of transfer practice in the real world.

Memory, Amnesia and the Hippocampal System

This book fails to instantiate the clear, goal-directed, multi-disciplinary approach which it should be advocating in the rehabilitation process and gets little idea of what actually goes on in a team meeting or in therapy.
