Pitt, Benjamin; Casasanto, Daniel – Cognitive Science, 2018
People implicitly associate different emotions with different locations in left-right space. Which aspects of emotion do they spatialize, and why? Across many studies people spatialize emotional valence, mapping positive emotions onto their dominant side of space and negative emotions onto their non-dominant side, consistent with theories of…

Jordan, Jake T.; Tong, Yi; Pytte, Carolyn L. – Learning & Memory, 2022
Plasticity is a neural phenomenon in which experience induces long-lasting changes to neuronal circuits and is at the center of most neurobiological theories of learning and memory. However, too much plasticity is maladaptive and must be balanced with substrate stability. Area CA3 of the hippocampus provides such a balance via hemispheric…

Begum Ali, Jannath; Charman, Tony; Johnson, Mark H.; Jones, Emily J. H. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
We investigated infant's manual motor behaviour; specifically behaviours crossing the body midline. Infants at elevated likelihood of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and/or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) produced fewer manual behaviours that cross the midline compared to infants with a typical likelihood of developing these…

Erhan, Süleyman Erim; Gerek, Zinnur; Bedir, Deniz – Journal of Education and Training Studies, 2018
This study was carried out to investigate the relationship among the hand, eye, and ear lateralizations and the sense of rhythm of the athletes randomly selected from different sport branches. A total of 115 elite athletes including 72 males (62.6%) and 43 females (37.4%) whose mean age was 22.3 ± 2.4 years and who receive training at different…

Dinc, Sirri Cem; Tez, Ozge Yavas – Journal of Education and Learning, 2019
The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between dominant brain areas, alexithymia and risk-taking behavior levels of nature and adventure recreation participants. The study was carried out on 652 outdoor adventure recreation participants in different categories (air, land, water) between the years 2016--2017. After meeting…

Ghamgui, Sana; Dahmen, Riadh; Souissi, Nizar – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2019
This study was designed to determine the factor(s) that influence the choice of the foot throughout the lifespan. To achieve this purpose, 86 right-footed participants (young children (5-- 8), adolescents (10-14), young adults (18-25) and older adults (over 50) were tested on two tasks of different levels of difficulty, performed in three spatial…

Cai, Xirui; Lian, Andrew; Puakpong, Nattaya; Shi, Yaoping; Chen, Haoqiang; Zeng, Yizhen; Ou, Jibing; Zheng, Wei; Mo, Yin – Asian-Pacific Journal of Second and Foreign Language Education, 2021
The quality of the physical language signals to which learners are exposed and which result in neurobiological activity leading to perception constitutes a variable that is rarely, if ever, considered in the context of language learning. It deserves some attention. The current study identifies an optimal audio language input signal for Chinese…

Lochy, Aliette; Schiltz, Christine – Child Development, 2019
The emergence of visual cortex specialization for culturally acquired characters like letters and digits, both arbitrary shapes related to specific cognitive domains, is yet unclear. Here, 20 young children (6.12 years old) were tested with a frequency-tagging paradigm coupled with electroencephalogram recordings to assess discrimination responses…

Dündar, Sefa; Gündüz, Nazan – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2016
Understanding preservice teachers' misconceptions regarding the brain and neuroscience (neuromyths) can provide information that helps teachers to apply neuroscience knowledge in an educational context. The objective of this study was to investigate these misconceptions. Following preliminary research, a questionnaire comprising 59 challenging…

Arabmofrad, Ali; Badi, Mehdi; Rajaee Pitehnoee, Mehran – Reading & Writing Quarterly, 2021
The past decade has witnessed a plethora of research to study the relationship between reading strategies and reading comprehension, but few studies have examined the brain functionality; more specifically the relationship between hemispheric dominance and reading strategies. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate whether there would be any…

Younger, Jessica W.; Lee, Keun-Woo; Demir-Lira, Ozlem E.; Booth, James R. – Developmental Science, 2019
Socioeconomic status (SES) has been shown to influence language skills, with children of lower SES backgrounds performing worse on language assessments compared to their higher SES peers. While there is abundant behavioral research on the effects of SES, whether there are differences in the neural mechanisms used to support language skill is less…

Yazgan, Yeliz; Sahin, Hatice Busra – Universal Journal of Educational Research, 2018
The present study aims at answering the question of whether there is any relationship between brain hemisphericity and non-routine problem solving skills of prospective teachers. One hundred twenty-three prospective teachers participated in the study. The Brain Hemisphericity Test and Non-routine Problem Solving Test were used to evaluate…

Jean-Richard-dit-Bressel , Philip; McNally, Gavan P. – Learning & Memory, 2016
Aversive outcomes punish behaviors that cause their occurrence. The prefrontal cortex (PFC) has been implicated in punishment learning and behavior, although the exact roles for different PFC regions in instrumental aversive learning and decision-making remain poorly understood. Here, we assessed the role of the orbitofrontal (OFC), rostral…
