Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
This paper considers the influence of temperamental factors on the development of anxious symptoms in children and adolescents.
About 20 percent of healthy children are born with a temperamental bias that predisposes them to be highly reactive to unfamiliar stimulation as infants and to be fearful of or avoidant to unfamiliar events and people as young children. Experiences act on this initial temperamental bias and, by adolescence, about one-third of this group is likely to show signs of serious social anxiety. These children are also likely to have one or more biological features, including a sympathetically more reactive cardiovascular system, asymmetry of cortical activation in EEG favoring a more active right frontal area, more power in the EEG in the higher frequency range, and a narrower facial skeleton. The data imply that this temperamental bias should be conceptualized as constraining the probability of developing a consistently fearless and spontaneous profile rather than as determining an anxious or introverted phenotype.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Adults identified as believers and sceptics based on self-reports from a supernatural beliefs scale were assessed on two measures of inhibition; the Stroop Color-Word Task and the Wisconsin Card Sorting Test (WCST). Both groups were of equal educational status and background. However, believers made significantly more errors than sceptics on all subscales of the WCST but were equivalent in performance on the Stroop measure. This finding is consistent with the idea that supernatural beliefs in adults are related to some types of inhibitory control.

Processing speed delays contribute to executive function deficits in individuals with agenesis of the corpus callosum
Publication year: 2012

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3605885/
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Corpus callosum malformation and dysfunction are increasingly recognized causes of cognitive and behavioral disability. Individuals with agenesis of the corpus callosum (AgCC) offer unique insights regarding the cognitive skills that depend specifically upon callosal connectivity. We examined the impact of AgCC on cognitive inhibition, flexibility, and processing speed using the Color-Word Interference Test (CWIT) and Trail Making Test (TMT) from the Delis-Kaplan Executive Function System. We compared 36 individuals with AgCC and IQs within the normal range to 56 matched controls. The AgCC cohort was impaired on timed measures of inhibition and flexibility; however, group differences on CWIT Inhibition, CWIT Inhibition/Switching and TMT Number-Letter Switching appear to be largely explained by slow performance in basic operations such as color naming and letter sequencing. On CWIT Inhibition/Switching, the AgCC group was found to commit significantly more errors which suggests that slow performance is not secondary to a cautious strategy. Therefore, while individuals with agenesis of the corpus callosum show real deficits on tasks of executive function, this impairment appears to be primarily a consequence of slow cognitive processing. Additional studies are needed to investigate the impact of AgCC on other aspects of higher order cortical function.

Low-frequency rTMS inhibitory effects in the primary motor cortex: Insights from TMS-evoked potentials
Publication year: 2014
URL:
http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1053811914003450
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The neuromodulatory effects of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) have been mostly investigated by peripheral motor-evoked potentials (MEPs). New TMS-compatible EEG systems allow a direct investigation of the stimulation effects through the analysis of TMS-evoked potentials (TEPs). We investigated the effects of 1-Hz rTMS over the primary motor cortex (M1) of 15 healthy volunteers on TEP evoked by single pulse TMS over the same area. A second experiment in which rTMS was delivered over the primary visual cortex (V1) of 15 healthy volunteers was conducted to examine the spatial specificity of the effects. Single-pulse TMS evoked four main components: P30, N45, P60 and N100. M1-rTMS resulted in a significant decrease of MEP amplitude and in a significant increase of P60 and N100 amplitude. There was no effect after V1-rTMS. 1-Hz rTMS appears to increase the amount of inhibition following a TMS pulse, as demonstrated by the higher N100 and P60, which are thought to originate from GABAb-mediated inhibitory post-synaptic potentials. Our results confirm the reliability of the TMS-evoked N100 as a marker of cortical inhibition and provide insight into the neuromodulatory effects of 1-Hz rTMS. The present finding could be of relevance for therapeutic and diagnostic purposes.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND
There is growing evidence for a positive effect of cultivated (i.e. developed through training) mindfulness on a range of cognitive functions. There are limited data at present examining the association between dispositional (trait) mindfulness, as measured in the general non-meditating population using self-report questionnaires, and cognitive function.
AIMS OF THE STUDY
To examine the effects of cultivated and dispositional (trait) mindfulness on smooth pursuit (SPEM) and anti-saccade (AS) tasks known to engage the fronto-parietal network implicated in attentional and motion detection processes, and the fronto-striatal network implicated in cognitive control, respectively.
METHODS
Sixty healthy men (19-59 years), of whom 30 were experienced mindfulness practitioners and 30 meditation-naïve, underwent infrared oculographic assessment of SPEM and AS performance. Trait mindfulness was assessed using the self-report Five Facet Mindfulness Questionnaire (FFMQ).
RESULTS
Meditators, relative to meditation-naïve individuals, made significantly fewer catch-up and anticipatory saccades during the SPEM task, and had significantly lower intra-individual variability in gain and spatial error during the AS task. No SPEM or AS measure correlated significantly with FFMQ scores in meditation-naïve individuals.
CONCLUSIONS
Cultivated, but not dispositional, mindfulness is associated with improved attention and sensorimotor control as indexed by SPEM and AS tasks.

Final report - Lateralisation of cognitive functions in the brain: Typical vs. atypical patterns

Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
Variable environmental demands guide our behaviour. Under such circumstances, cognitive control processes enable us to maintain current goals, or, to change to alternative ones. Here, we examine both functions in left- and right-handers using variants of experimental paradigms that contrast the processing requirements of cognitive stability (distractor inhibition) vs. cognitive flexibility (task switching), and investigate the participants' behavioural metrics. The data revealed that individuals differ in their cognitive control functions of stability and flexibility. In particular, we observed that handedness biases the cognitive system. That is, left- and right-handers showed opposite trends with respect to the stability-flexibility balance, with left-handers demonstrating increased flexibility as opposed to stability. This indicates that both groups vary in their information processing, and suggests that handedness guides intra-hemispheric as well as inter-hemispheric resources for achieving behaviour. Together, the findings highlight that cognitive control functions depend on individual parameters that are driven by handedness, and that accordingly regulate the implementation of our goals. These results extend knowledge into individual differences of cognition and the underlying brain mechanisms.
