CONCLUSION: These results indicate that self-report of CMP in Mn-exposed residents appear to be invalid when compared to neuropsychological test scores. The participants'misperception of having CMP is associated with less education and higher levels of depression. Neuropsychological assessment is recommended to attain valid results.

Study: Parents ’ educational and income levels (not breastfeeding per se) account for the brain development gains in breastfed children
CONCLUSIONS: Although 1 positive benefit of breastfeeding was found by using propensity score matching, the effect size was modest in practical terms. No support was found for statistically significant gains at age 5 years, suggesting that the earlier observed benefit from breastfeeding may not be maintained once children enter school.

In this study, we report neuropsychological and lesion profiles of 10 new cases of semantic aphasia. Modern neuroimaging techniques provide support for the relevance of the left TPO area for semantic aphasia, but also extend Luria's neuroanatomical model by taking into account white matter pathways. Our findings suggest that tracts with parietal connectivity - the arcuate fasciculus (long and posterior segments), the inferior fronto-occipital fasciculus, the inferior longitudinal fasciculus, the superior longitudinal fasciculus II and III, and the corpus callosum - are implicated in the linguistic and non-linguistic defici...

Study: Rates of ADHD diagnosis and medication treatment continue to increase substantially
— Beginning in about 1990, substantial increases in the rates of ADHD diagnosis and medical treatment were found in several nationally representative samples of US physician office visits. For example, between 1995-96 and 2007-08, the number of office visits at which an ADHD diagnosis was made increased by over 400% in adults – from 3.1 per 1000 visits to 14.5 per 1000 visits. And, the percent of adult office visits including both ADHD diagnosis and medication increased from 1.9 to 11.4 per 1000 visits. Among children aged 5 to 18, between 1991-92 and 2008-09, rates of ADHD diagnosis increased nearly 4-fold amo...

Misunderstandings of the Hickok & Poeppel Dual Stream framework: Comments on Dial & Martin 2017
A recent paper by Dial& Martin (DM) presents some interesting data on the relation between performance on a range of different speech perception tasks including some that have been the topic of discussion on this blog and in many of my papers. These include syllable discrimination and auditory comprehension among others. I have argued in several papers with David Poeppel and others that these two tasks differentially engage the dorsal (syllable discrimination) and ventral streams (comprehension). DM sought to test this claim by testing how well these tasks hang together or dissociate in a group of 13 aph...
