Huntington’s gene mutation carriers: Severity of the genetic mutation related to learning efficiency
People who bear the genetic mutation for Huntington’s disease learn faster than healthy people. The more pronounced the mutation was, the more quickly they learned. This is reported by researchers from the Ruhr-Universität Bochum and from Dortmund in the journal Current Biology. Continue reading →

It proved for the first time that this kind of training works. The largest impact was evident in training the strengths “curiosity”, “gratitude”, “optimism”, “humor” and “enthusiasm”.

Psychologists at the University of Liverpool have found that children as young as two years old have an understanding of complex grammar even before they have learned to speak in full sentences.
Researchers at the University’s Child Language Study Centre showed children, aged two, sentences containing made-up verbs, such as ‘the rabbit is glorping the duck’, and asked them to match the sentence with a cartoon picture. They found that even the youngest two-year-old could identify the correct image with the correct sentence, more often than would be expected by chance.

At the end of the film, she queried: “And who noticed the gorilla on the court?” No one had paid attention to the hairy interloper because they were so engrossed in looking for what they were expecting to see.
“Our expectations are very powerful,” says Jordan-Young in an interview with The Jerusalem Post on her first-ever visit to Israel. Jordan-Young’s lecture on her latest findings was held at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s Continue reading →
