Neural oscillations track the maintenance and proceduralization of novel instructions

Silvia Formica, Carlos González-García, Mehdi Senoussi, Marcel Brass
2021 NeuroImage  
Previous evidence and theoretical models suggest that the implementation of a novel instruction requires the reformatting of its declarative content into an action-oriented code optimized for the execution  ...  By means of time-frequency analyses, we isolated the oscillatory features specific to the proceduralization of instructions.  ...  Specifically, we reasoned that both declarative maintenance and proactive proceduralization of novel instructions likely engage certain shared processes, such as selective attention towards the instructed  ...

Induced and Evoked Human Electrophysiological Correlates of Visual Working Memory Set-Size Effects at Encoding

Gennadiy Gurariy, Kyle W. Killebrew, Marian E. Berryhill, Gideon P. Caplovitz, Andrea Antal
2016 PLoS ONE  
Research into the neural correlates of set size effects and VWM capacity limits in general largely focus on the maintenance period of VWM.  ...  We found that set size modulated the amplitude of the 1 st and 2 nd harmonic frequencies evoked during successful VWM encoding across frontal and occipital-parietal electrodes.  ...  Thus, the stimulus frequencies chosen for the experimental procedure (described in Materials and methods section: Experimental procedure) are arbitrary with regards to endogenous neural oscillations involved  ...

Menstrual Cycle Modulates Motor Learning and Memory Consolidation in Humans

Koyuki Ikarashi, Daisuke Sato, Kaho Iguchi, Yasuhiro Baba, Koya Yamashiro
2020 Brain Sciences  
Numerous studies have noted that sex and/or menstrual phase influences cognitive performance (in particular, declarative memory), but the effects on motor learning (ML) and procedural memory/consolidation  ...  This behavioral difference could be explained by particular premenstrual syndrome symptoms and associated failure of normal M1 excitability in the luteal group.  ...  Conflicts of Interest: The authors declare that the research was conducted in the absence of any commercial or financial relationships that could be construed as a potential conflict of interest.  ...
