Eye movements provide insight into individual differences in children’s analogical reasoning strategies.

Related Articles Eye movements provide insight into individual differences in children’s analogical reasoning strategies. Acta Psychol (Amst). 2018 May;186:18-26 Authors: Starr A, Vendetti MS, Bunge SA Abstract Analogical reasoning is considered a key driver of cognitive development and is a strong predictor of academic achievement. However, it is difficult for young children, who are prone […]

Somatosensory maps.

Related Articles Somatosensory maps. Handb Clin Neurol. 2018;151:73-102 Authors: Harding-Forrester S, Feldman DE Abstract Somatosensory areas containing topographic maps of the body surface are a major feature of parietal cortex. In primates, parietal cortex contains four somatosensory areas, each with its own map, with the primary cutaneous map in area 3b. Rodents have at least […]

Seasonal Reproduction in Vertebrates: Melatonin Synthesis, Binding, and Functionality Using Tinbergen’s Four Questions.

Related Articles Seasonal Reproduction in Vertebrates: Melatonin Synthesis, Binding, and Functionality Using Tinbergen’s Four Questions. Molecules. 2018 Mar 13;23(3): Authors: viviD D, Bentley GE Abstract One of the many functions of melatonin in vertebrates is seasonal reproductive timing. Longer nights in winter correspond to an extended duration of melatonin secretion. The purpose of this review […]
