The Cognitive neuroscience of healthy aging

Human neuroimaging research on cognitive aging has brought significant advances to our understanding of the neural mechanisms underlying age-related cognitive decline and successful aging. However, interpreting age-related changes and differences in brain structure, activation, and functional connectivity is an ongoing … Continue reading

Cognitive Neuroscience of Thinking

The study of thinking in psychology is distributed over three largely independent branches: problem solving, reasoning, and judgment and decision-making. These domains are delineated by the type of tasks they study and the underlying formal apparatus they appeal to in their explanatory framework. … Continue reading

Towards a cognitive neuroscience of self-awareness

Self-awareness is a pivotal component of the conscious experience. It is correlated with a paralimbic net-work of medial prefrontal/anterior cingulate and medial parietal/posterior cingulate cortical “hubs” and associated regions.Electromagnetic and transmitter manipulation have demonstrated that the network is not an … Continue reading

Dynamic reorganization of brain functional networks during cognition

How cognition emerges from neural dynamics? The dominant hypothesis states that interactions among distributed brain regions through phase synchronization give a basis for cognitive processing. Such phase synchronized networks are transient and dynamic, established on the timescale of milliseconds in order to perform … Continue reading
