Parietal alpha oscillations associated with working memory may reflect cognitive effort modulations

Neuropsy Lab explores how cognitive abilities improve in children during their maturation, and which neurobiological constructs determine individual differences in their development. To find answers to these questions, we use classic and contemporary measures of mental-attentional capacity in conjunction with cutting edge physiological and neuroimaging technologies such as ultrasound, eye-tracking and magnetic resonance imaging.

Cognitive abilities are the higher brain functions allowing us to perceive, filter, memorize, process and restore information. These abilities correspond to mental actions we take to solve problems and acquire knowledge in everyday life. Cognitive processes improve throughout childhood and adolescence and they are highly linked to academic achievement and professional success.

Mental-attentional capacity is one of core cognitive abilities, it is defined as a component of working memory, which improve in children during their maturation and corresponds to the amount of information that a person can simultaneously hold and process in his/her mind.
