  • Cognitive Neuroscience Study

    Cognitive psychology is the study of human mental processes that occur within the mind. It looks at such internal processes such as, memory, perception and attention. It came about in the 1950’s as a result of the behaviourist approach being flawed; internal mental processes cannot be observed. Therefore, from this an alternative method of looking at the physiological side of the brain had to emerge. Cognitive neuroscience was then born to identify the neural mechanisms, which are responsible for underlying cognition. These neural mechanisms are also important when it comes to manifestations in behaviour. Cognitive neuroscience helps to combine the works of cognitive science and cognitive psychology. However, it is important to consider how…

  • What Is A Cognitive Or Affective Neuroscience?

    The graduate program, Cognitive and Affective Nueroscience, at Rice University encompasses interest on the topic of emotional regulation and its impact on mental health. On the faculty page of the Psychology department, I noticed that Dr. Bryan Denny was researching said topic and I am interested in working with him. My interest also spans to a curiosity about the impact that cultural upbringing has on emotional regulation skills. I believe that I have the qualities required for Cognitive and…

  • Joshua Foer The End Of Memory Analysis

    What do you do with your thoughts? A long time ago, there was no paper to scribe thoughts onto or computers to record them. There was nothing to do with thoughts, but remember them. Anything worth preserving had to be preserved in memory. In the essay, “The End of Remembering” by Joshua Foer, memory is an important issue. Different tools for remembering are discussed. In the course of time, a series of technologies have been created: the alphabet, scrolls, the printing press, photography, the…

  • My Interest In Research

    myself from the emotional aspects of working with and for the sake of children, I am interested in child health because children are constantly growing and developing. In respects to neuroscience, I am able to see and research neurological diseases and cognitive functions as it applies to a brain that is constantly changing. The adult brain does have some plasticity, but it is incomparable to that of a child’s. I am fascinated by the aspect of change and development and how that influences the…

  • Informative Essay On Neuroscience

    I’ve never been able to explain my major in neuroscience without the someone asking me, “Oh, so you’re going to study diseases and disorders, like Autism and Alzheimer’s?” I’ve now realized that it isn’t their fault at all. I mean, that’s all we people in the neuroscience field ever really talk about anyway. It’s basically like telling a construction worker, “Oh, so you’re going to destroy buildings and use explosives?” The study of neuroscience isn’t merely focused on the disorders and…

  • Neurological Basis Of Learning And Memory

    began during an independent research project in the second year of my master’s degree at Bangalore University. I was in awe when I realized how extraordinarily complex the neural mechanisms that support memory formation are and yet these profound neural events may be “undone” if the memories are not retrieved. Furthermore, I learned that memories can be embedded in chains, or “engrams”, composed of antecedent and subsequent events and may lack specific retrieval ‘checkpoints’. Despite having…

  • Genes Make A Difference

    play a role in the later stages of puberty. Nevertheless, Parents ' lifestyles, rather than their genes, have been shown responsible for their children being having physical and mental deficits (Myers & Dewall, 2015) Environmental influences are huge with young children. Poor environment conditions can diminish or decrease cognitive development. For example, in schools where poverty-level children attend often have less-qualified teachers, making it harder for the students to learn and use the…

  • Alzheimer's Disease Summary

    Carter’s experience includes a master’s degree in neuroscience from at Taiwan University. After completing her master’s, she worked as a research assistant for three years. In 2005, she gained admittance to Case Western Reserve University’s doctoral program. Dr. Carter’s Ph.D. research investigated the role of apolipoprotein E (ApoE) in proteolytic Aβ degradation. While the association between ApoE and Aβ is well established in AD research, the underlying pathology of this association remained…
