Enriched environment and physical activity reduce microglia and influence the fate of NG2 cells in the amygdala of adult mice

The adult amygdala shows signs of mixed activity-dependent plasticity: reduced numbers of microglia and, presumably, an altered fate of NG2 cells, which is thought to differentiate primarily into oligodendrocytes.

Coma and Disorders of Consciousness

Patients in coma, vegetative state/unresponsive wakefulness syndrome, and in minimally conscious states pose medical, scientific, and ethical challenges, and functional medical imaging and electrophysiology provide alternative means to communicate with these challenging patients and will potentially mediate to extract responses of medical-ethical content.

Investigation into the prevalence of sensory processing difficulties in children identified as having behavioural, emotional or social difficulties at school

The incidence of sensory processing difficulties (SPDs) was investigated for pupils (aged 4-10 years old) with behavioural, emotional or social difficulties (BESD). Teachers provided a measure of

Hallucination Proneness and Musical Aptitude: Functional and Microstructural Underpinnings

Results offer evidence that musical training may offer a novel approach for improving fronto-temporal functional connectivity and the microstructure of the corpus callosum, providing an initial foundation for investigation of future novel interventions for hallucinatory experiences.

Selective increases in inter-individual variability in response to environmental enrichment

Enriched environment (ENR) can serve as a model of brain individualization and influences multiple parameters and restructured correlation patterns between them, but only increased differences among individuals in traits related to brain and behavior in agreement with the hypothesis of a specific activity-dependent development of brain individuality.

Background Concepts in Stroke Rehabilitation

Of pertinent interest are the effect of early initiation of rehabilitation, increased therapy intensity, and enriched environments on stroke recovery.

Human neuromaturation, juvenile extreme energy liability, and adult cognition/cooperation

Human childhood and adolescence is the period in which adult cognitive competences (including those that create the unique cooperativeness of humans) are acquired, and a presently overlooked bioenergetic-cognition loop by which extended neuromaturation creates the cooperative abilities in adults that support juveniles through the potentially vulnerable period of the neurodevelopment needed to become such adults.





Nature and Nurture in Mental Development

A COMPARISON of children with their parents by means of school-reports, intelligence-tests, as also the results of genealogical research, give repeated proof of the fact that children of the gifted

A Nissl Method Using Buffered Solutions of Thionin

A satisfactory procedure using thionin in dilute buffered solutions was developed and a rapid method for staining the chromophilic substance of formalin-fixed nerve cells differentially without resorting to over-staining and subsequent acid-decolorizing was developed.
