Topics from this paper

Δ9-THC administered into the medial prefrontal cortex disrupts the spatial working memory
RationaleΔ9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ9-THC) disrupts working memory. The prefrontal cortex (PFC) is involved in the processing of working memory, and its medial portion (mPFC) is part of a brain rewardExpand
Competitive and noncompetitive NMDA antagonist effects in rats trained to discriminate lever-press counts
TLDR
Results suggest that both the affinity and the site bound on the NMDA glutamate receptor by antagonists can determine their effects on FCN performance. Expand
Working Memory and Higher-Order Cognition in Children
Higher-order cognitive functions, such as executive function (EF) and intelligence, are crucial to the everyday functioning of human beings. Gaining knowledge about these functions is important forExpand
JUHANA AURA INTERACTION OF MUSCARINIC ACETYLCHOLINE AND N-METHYL-D-ASPARTATE-TYPE GLUTAMATE RECEPTORS IN THE REGULATION OF SPATIAL LEARNING AND MEMORY
Degeneration of cholinergic cells in the basal forebrain correlates with the cognitive impairment seen in Alzheimer’s disease (AD), but so far the cognitive improvement of AD patients receivingExpand
Cocaine- and Amphetamine-Regulated Transcript Peptide (CART) Alleviates MK-801-Induced Schizophrenic Dementia-Like Symptoms
TLDR
It is suggested that CART may, positively modulate the dopamine system to alleviate cognitive deficits associated with schizophrenia. Expand
Haloperidol increases the disruptive effect of alcohol on spatial working memory in rats: a dopaminergic modulation in the medial prefrontal cortex
TLDR
Results showed that ETOH administered directly in the mPFC disrupts short- and long-term spatial working memory, and suggests that the dopaminergic neurotransmission in this cortical area might modulate ETOh effects on spatialWorking memory. Expand
Working Memory, Semantics, and Normal Aging
This study examined working memory in normal aging using three different self-ordered pointing tasks. The task stimuli differed in the amount of semantics processing necessary to complete the task:Expand
A COMMON STORAGE MECHANISM IN SHORT- TERM, WORKING AND LONG-TERM MEMORY? SOME EVIDENCE FROM CONTROL AND SCHIZOPHRENIA SAMPLES.
[Abstract]: Background: Baddeley and Hitch’s (1974) multi-component model of working memory (WM) has provided the basis for exploration into the nature of remembering and manipulating informationExpand
Selective enhancement of emotional, but not motor, learning in monoamine oxidase A-deficient mice.
TLDR
The results suggest that chronic elevations of monoamines, due to a deletion of the gene encoding MAOA, lead to selective alterations in emotional behavior. Expand
Neural Networks and the Mind
  • J. Taylor
  • Psychology, Computer Science
  • Concepts for Neural Networks
  • 1998
TLDR
The Relational Mind model is used to begin to construct a detailed model of the Mind, and a set of guiding Principles is developed, and the two stage Relationalmind model explored to understand the emergence of consciousness at the level of phenomenal experience. Expand
