Conditioning of interictal behaviours, but not ictal behaviours, seizures, or afterdischarge threshold, by kindling of the amygdala in rats
Repeated focal electrical stimulation of the brain results in kindling, the development of generalized seizures that progress in length and severity as more seizures are elicited. Barnes et al. (2001) paired one context ...
Children's memories of dental procedures : effect of question type, individual differences and temporal delay
This study explored external and internal factors and their effect on children’s memory of a naturalistic, potentially stressful event, namely, a dental procedure. Specifically, question format (yes/no questions versus ...
Aberrant structural and functional plasticity in the adult hippocampus of amygdala kindled rats
Amygdala kindling is commonly used to study the neural mechanisms of temporal lobe epilepsy and its behavioral consequences. The repetitive seizure activity that occurs during kindling is thought to induce an extensive ...
Lateral Biases in Attention and Working Memory Systems
Neurologically healthy individuals misbisect their visual space by erring towards the left. This misreprentation has been attributed to the right hemisphere dominance in processing of spatial information. Lateral biases ...
Failures to Replicate Hyper-Retrieval-Induced Forgetting in Arithmetic Memory
Campbell and Phenix (2009) observed retrieval-induced forgetting (RIF) (slower response time) for simple addition facts (e.g., 3 + 4) immediately following 40 retrieval-practice blocks of their multiplication counterparts ...
