Intelligence and Cognitive Control [chapter]

Adam Chuderski, Edward Nęcka
2010 Handbook of Individual Differences in Cognition  
We suggest that a functional framework of this kind may benefit from the consideration of an additional "integration" function .  ...  We interpret the current findings on such limitations in terms of the cognitive exhaustion model (see Sedek et al., this volume).  ...  A retrieval-failure account of LI also gains support from animal experiments that have manipulated the time between the stage-2 acquisition and stage-3 test stages.  ...

2004 Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society  
A model for emotion processing will be presented that considers different routes to perceptual categorization of input and the role of emotional responsivity.  ...  The extent to which each of these facets of emotional processing are intact in people with TBI and the extent to which these interact to aid emotion recognition will be discussed.  ...  We present papers that address the issue from a clinical perspective, from a rehabilitation perspective, and from a public policy perspective.  ...

Children with dyslexia show cortical hyperactivation in response to increasing literacy processing demands

Frøydis Morken, Turid Helland, Kenneth Hugdahl, Karsten Specht
2014 Frontiers in Psychology  
Eleven children with and 18 without dyslexia were assessed using a reading paradigm based on different stages of literacy development.  ...  Overall, the dyslexia group showed cortical hyperactivation compared to the typical group. The difference between the groups tended to increase with increasing processing demands.  ...  Each block was modeled by its onset time and its duration of 24 s. The resulting onset vector was convolved with a hemodynamic response function (hrf), provided by SPM8.  ...
