Alexis Madrigal is an American journalist.
Android is a mobile operating system developed by Google, based on a modified version of the Linux kernel and other open source software and designed primarily for touchscreen mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.
Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a mental disorder of the neurodevelopmental type.
The cingulate cortex is a part of the brain situated in the medial aspect of the cerebral cortex.
The term cognitive neuroscience was coined by George Armitage Miller and Michael Gazzaniga in year 1976.
Construct validity is "the degree to which a test measures what it claims, or purports, to be measuring."Polit DF Beck CT (2012).
Convergent validity, a parameter often used in sociology, psychology, and other behavioral sciences, refers to the degree to which two measures of constructs that theoretically should be related, are in fact related.
A dual-task paradigm is a procedure in experimental (neuro)psychology that requires an individual to perform two tasks simultaneously, in order to compare performance with single-task conditions.
Face validity is the extent to which a test is subjectively viewed as covering the concept it purports to measure.
In psychology, fluid and crystallized intelligence (respectively abbreviated Gf and Gc) are factors of general intelligence, originally identified by Raymond Cattell.
An intelligence quotient (IQ) is a total score derived from several standardized tests designed to assess human intelligence.
Neuroimaging or brain imaging is the use of various techniques to either directly or indirectly image the structure, function/pharmacology of the nervous system.
The posterior parietal cortex (the portion of parietal neocortex posterior to the primary somatosensory cortex) plays an important role in planned movements, spatial reasoning, and attention.
In mammalian brain anatomy, the prefrontal cortex (PFC) is the cerebral cortex which covers the front part of the frontal lobe.
The premotor cortex is an area of motor cortex lying within the frontal lobe of the brain just anterior to the primary motor cortex.
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS) is the official scientific journal of the National Academy of Sciences, published since 1915.
Raven's Progressive Matrices (often referred to simply as Raven's Matrices) or RPM is a nonverbal group test typically used in educational settings.
The University of Oslo (Universitetet i Oslo), until 1939 named the Royal Frederick University (Det Kongelige Frederiks Universitet), is the oldest university in Norway, located in the Norwegian capital of Oslo.
Wired is a monthly American magazine, published in print and online editions, that focuses on how emerging technologies affect culture, the economy, and politics.
Working memory is a cognitive system with a limited capacity that is responsible for temporarily holding information available for processing.
