(2012-09-18)Age-related changes in brain functional activation have been characterized by both age-related cortical over-and under-recruitment compared to young adults. Evidence from working memory domain has demonstrated that such ...
(2011-05-25)Trait and state negative affect contribute to the development and maintenance of psychopathology, though the mechanisms through which they exert their effects remain unclear. The present study was motivated by the hypothesis ...
(2011-08-25)Experiments on the neural mechanisms of feature-based attention suggest that features are selected in parallel across the visual field (Treue & Trujillo, 1999). Moreover, feature-based attention spreads not only to the ...
Investigating the effects of a 6-month aerobic exercise intervention on brain function and memory in older adults (2016-04-19)Episodic memory is particularly susceptible to age-related decline. Research in animal models and cross-sectional studies in humans provide evidence that engaging in aerobic exercise may mitigate the effects of aging on ...
(2012-09-18)Anxiety and depression are prevalent forms of psychopathology and are associated with significant impairment in multiple areas of life, including occupational, educational, and social functioning. In addition to their ...
(2011-05-25)Since the early 1990s, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) has dominated the brain mapping field and it has been proved a powerful tool for mapping human brain functions. The fMRI is a high spatial-temporal ...
The impact of emotional distraction on cognition: from basic brain responses to large-scale network interactions (2016-03-16)The goal of the current dissertation was to clarify the behavioral and neural mechanisms associated with the impact and control of emotional distraction by investigating the influences of the nature (positive vs. negative) ...
