Babies remember nothing but a good time, study says (12/7/2014)

Researchers performed memory tests with 5-month-old babies. The babies better remembered shapes that were introduced with happy voices and faces. Past studies have shown that babies are very tuned to emotions, including the emotions of animals. ...> Full Article



Cookie Monster teaches self-control (11/28/2014)

Cookie Monster teaches self-controlDeborah Linebarger, an associate professor in the UI College of Education's Department of Teaching and Learning, found preschoolers who watched videos of Cookie Monster practicing ways to control his desire to eat chocolate chip cookies had more self-control than preschoolers who didn't see the videos. ...> Full Article


Focusing on executive functions in kindergarten leads to lasting academic improvements (11/22/2014)

An educational approach focused on the development of children's executive functions -- the ability to avoid distractions, focus attention, hold relevant information in working memory, and regulate impulsive behavior -- improved academic learning in and beyond kindergarten, according to a new study by NYU Steinhardt researchers. ...> Full Article


Infant immune systems learn fast, but have short memories (6/15/2014)

Forgetful immune systems leave infants particularly prone to infections, according to a new Cornell University study. Upending the common theory that weak immune cells are to blame, the study has found that infants' immune systems actually respond to infection with more speed and strength than adults, but the immunities they create fail to last. ...> Full Article


New study on mobile phones and children's cognitive development (5/26/2014)

Head injuries can make children loners (4/11/2014)

The study looked at kids three years after the initial incident and found that lingering injury in the brain's right frontal lobe is associated with lower social competence (participation in groups, number of friends, etc.). The study also suggests that therapy designed to improve working memory might 'treat' the social difficulties. ...> Full Article



Cognitive development 'growth charts' may help diagnose and treat psychosis-risk kids (2/14/2014)

Cognitive development 'growth charts' may help diagnose and treat psychosis-risk kidsPenn Medicine researchers have developed a better way to assess and diagnose psychosis in young children. By "growth charting" cognitive development alongside the presentation of psychotic symptoms, they have demonstrated that the most significant lags in cognitive development correlate with the most severe cases of psychosis. Their findings are published online this month in JAMA Psychiatry. ...> Full Article


New study suggests choline recommendations during pregnancy may be too low (2/3/2014)

Recent research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that during pregnancy, and particularly during the third trimester, large amounts of choline may be needed to support fetal development. Conclusions of the research revealed that current recommendations may be too low. Choline deficiency in pregnant women may result in elevated levels of homocysteine, potentially resulting in birth defects. ...> Full Article


Stepparents are not always evil (11/23/2013)

If there is a reasonable chance of increasing wealth in the parents' environment then no difference is made between one's own children and stepchildren. Thus, parental care depends on more than just the biological relationship. ...> Full Article



Exercise during pregnancy gives newborn brain development a head start (11/19/2013)

Exercise during pregnancy gives newborn brain development a head startAs little as 20 minutes of moderate exercise three times per week during pregnancy enhances the newborn child's brain development, according to researchers at the University of Montreal and its affiliated CHU Sainte-Justine children's hospital. This head-start could have an impact on the child's entire life. ...> Full Article

New article reveals why people with depression may struggle with parenthood (10/24/2013)

An article by researchers at the University of Exeter has shed light on the link between depression and poor parenting. The article identifies the symptoms of depression that are likely to cause difficulties with parenting. The findings could lead to more effective interventions to prevent depression and other psychological disorders from being passed from parent to child. ...> Full Article


Study finds daytime naps enhance learning in preschool children (9/30/2013)

Study finds daytime naps enhance learning in preschool children"Essentially we are the first to report evidence that naps are important for preschool children," Spencer says. "Our study shows that naps help the kids better remember what they are learning in preschool." Results appear in the current issue of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. ...> Full Article


How parents see themselves may affect their child's brain and stress level (8/22/2013)

A mother's perceived social status predicts her child's brain development and stress indicators, finds a new Boston Children's study -- the first to link brain function to maternal self-perception. Children in the study, whose mothers saw themselves as having a low social status were more likely to have increased cortisol levels, (stress indicator), and less activation of their hippocampus, (structure in the brain responsible for long-term memory formation, required for learning) and reducing stress responses. ...> Full Article


Breastfeeding duration appears associated with intelligence later in life (8/10/2013)

Ketamine as anesthetics can damage children's learning and memory ability (7/28/2013)

Ketamine as anesthetics can damage children's learning and memory abilityRecent studies have found that anesthesia drugs have neurotoxicity on the developing neurons, causing learning and memory disorders and behavioral abnormalities. Ketamine is commonly used in pediatric anesthesia. A clinical retrospective study found that children below 3 years old who receive a long time surgery, or because of surgery require ketamine repeatedly will exhibit the performance of school-age learning and memory disorders and behavioral abnormalities. ...> Full Article


A look inside children's minds (7/8/2013)

A look inside children's mindsEver wondered what's going on inside young children's brains when they're looking at things? Researchers at the University of Iowa have used optical neuroimaging for the first time on 3-and 4-year-olds to determine which areas of the brain are activated in "visual working memory." ...> Full Article


Imaging technique shows premature birth interrupts vital brain development processes leading to reduced cognitive abilities in infants (5/22/2013)

Researchers from King's College London have for the first time used a novel form of MRI to identify crucial developmental processes in the brain that are vulnerable to the effects of premature birth. This new study, published today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, shows that disruption of these specific processes can have an impact on cognitive function. ...> Full Article


Ability to remember memories' origin not fully developed in youths (9/4/2011)

During childhood and adolescence, children develop the ability to remember not only past events but the origin of those memories. New research finds that the ability to remember the origin of memories is a relatively long process that matures during adolescence but isn't fully developed until adulthood. This study included18 children, 20 adolescents, and 20 young adults, all of whom completed a two-part computer-based memory task developed by the researchers. ...> Full Article


Comparing profiles of learning and memory impairments in 2 groups of children (3/31/2011)

A new study has compared the verbal learning and memory performance of children with heavy prenatal alcohol exposure (PAE) with that of children with attention-deficit/ hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The children with PAE had initial problems with learning information, reflecting inefficient encoding of verbal material. The children with ADHD had difficulty retaining information over time, reflecting a deficit in retrieval of learned material. ...> Full Article
