Intelligence - nature or
nurture? Researchers find a gene for intelligence and also that a
bigger brain matters, yet other recent articles show how
motivation affects learning.
Scientists crack piece of neural code for learning, memory
Researchers describe how postmortem brain slices can be 'read' to determine how a rat was trained to behave in response to specific sounds, a new article suggests. The work provides one of the first examples of how specific changes in the activity of individual neurons encode particular acts of learning and memory in the brain.
