Complex Phonological Tests Are Useful for Diagnosing Reading Dysfunction

Complex Phonological Tests Are Useful for Diagnosing Reading Dysfunction
HSE University researchers have confirmed that the level of phonological processing skills in children can impact their ability to master reading. Complex phonological tests are best suited to detect phonological impairment. The study was published on September 6, 2020, in the Journal of Research in Reading.

Researchers Reveal How Spontaneous Fluctuations of Neural Brain Activity Impact Sensory Responses

A team of researchers from Russia, Germany and the USA have identified the mechanisms that form the basis for the impact of the brain’s current state on sensory processing. The results of the study were published in the paper ‘Multiple Mechanisms Link Prestimulus Neural Oscillations to Sensory Responses’ in eLIFE. 

Spontaneous Fluctuations of Brain Activity Influence What You See

Luca Iemi from HSE University, jointly with Niko A Busch from Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität, have found that the state of excitability of the brain — indexed byspontaneous neural oscillations - biases a person’s subjective perceptual experience, rather than their decision-making strategy. The findings will be published in eNeurounder the title ‘Moment-to-moment fluctuations in neuronal excitability bias subjective perception rather than decision-making’.
