Adolescents With Type 2 Diabetes Have Diminished Cognitive Performance and Brain Abnormalities

NYU Langone Health

A study by researchers at NYU Langone Medical Center have found that obese adolescents with type 2 diabetes have diminished cognitive performance and subtle abnormalities in the brain as detected by Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). Identification of cognitive impairments as a complication of type 2 diabetes emphasizes the importance of addressing issues of inactivity and obesity, two important risk factors for the development of the disease among the young. The study appeared online in the journal Diabetologia, July 30, 2010.

Negative Stereotypes Shown to Affect Learning, Not Just Performance

Indiana University

Negative stereotypes not only jeopardize how members of stigmatized groups might perform on tests and in other skill-based acts, such as driving and golf putting, but they also can inhibit actual learning, according to a new study by Indiana University researchers.

How Memory Is Disrupted in People with Disease Linked to Learning Disabilities

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Health Sciences

A UCLA research team has uncovered new genetic clues about how neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) disrupts working memory. The findings suggest a potential drug target for correcting NF1-related learning disabilities.

Memory Problems Not the Only Predictor of Later Mild Cognitive Impairment

Rush University Medical Center

Researchers at Rush University Medical Center have found that lower, though not necessarily impaired, performance on tests measuring story learning or retention and processing speed in motor tasks dependent on visual control, as well as symptoms of depression, predicted subsequent cognitive decline in a normal population.

When Do Newborns First Feel Cold?

University of Southern California (USC)

Laboratory mouse study suggests that cold sensing develops well after birth. Cold sensing neural circuits in newborn mice take around two weeks to become fully active. The finding adds to understanding of the cold sensing protein TRPM8 (pronounced trip-em-ate), and suggests possible biological basis of cold sensing in humans.

Crayfish Brain May Offer Rare Insight into Human Decision Making

University of Maryland, College Park

Crayfish make surprisingly complex, cost-benefit choices, finds a University of Maryland study -opening up a new line of research to help unravel the cellular brain activity involved in human decisions. It concludes crayfish are a practical way to identify the neural circuitry and chemistry of decision making. No direct way exists to do this in primates.
