This study examined the associations between intrinsic motivation and achievement in mathematics in a sample of 1,478 Canadian school‐age children followed from Grades 1 to 4 (ages 7–10). Children self‐reported their ...
BDNF Val66Met polymorphism interacts with sleep consolidation to predict ability to create new declarative memories
(Society for Neuroscience, 2016-08)
It is hypothesized that a fundamental function of sleep is to restore an individual's day-to-day ability to learn and to constantly adapt to a changing environment through brain plasticity. Brain-derived neurotrophic factor ...
ENIGMA and the individual : Predicting factors that affect the brain in 35 countries worldwide
In this review, we discuss recent work by the ENIGMA Consortium (http://enigma.ini.usc.edu) – a global alliance of over 500 scientists spread across 200 institutions in 35 countries collectively analyzing brain imaging, ...
Incomplete hippocampalInversion : a comprehensive MRI study of over 2000 subjects
(Frontiers Media, 2015-12-22)
The incomplete-hippocampal-inversion (IHI), also known as malrotation, is an atypical anatomical pattern of the hippocampus, which has been reported in healthy subjects in different studies. However, extensive characterization ...
Associations of prenatal urinary bisphenol a concentrations with child behaviors and cognitive abilities
(National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2017)
BACKGROUND: Prenatal bisphenol A (BPA) exposure has been associated with adverse neurodevelopment in epidemiological studies. However, prior studies had limited statistical power to examine sex-specific effects, and ...
Early cannabis use, polygenic risk score for schizophrenia and brain maturation in adolescence
(American Medical Association, 2015-10)
IMPORTANCE: Cannabis use during adolescence is known to increase the risk for schizophrenia in men. Sex differences in the dynamics of brain maturation during adolescence may be of particular importance with regard to ...
