Scientists have discovered a new type of brain plasticy change that could help you learn new things, such as reading a new word.
The change, called a “brain plasticity,” can be seen in people who are already capable of learning new words, but don’t necessarily remember them.
The research was published in the journal Science.
The study found that the brain of people who were able to learn new words had a larger number of connections to different parts of the brain, including the prefrontal cortex, which is responsible for planning and controlling behavior.
It’s a process called semantic memory.
People who have trouble with semantic memory, or forgetting new words they’re already familiar with, tend to be more likely to develop autism spectrum disorders.
This study, however, doesn’t look at the brain’s entire capacity for semantic memory—what researchers are trying to figure out is whether certain brain areas can help you remember words.
In the study, researchers scanned the brains of people with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and healthy controls and showed them pictures of familiar words.
Then, they asked them to recall words they had never heard before and asked them how well they remembered them.
For the autism group, those pictures had more semantic memory than images of unfamiliar words, which was an indication of their semantic memory capacity.
For people who had autism spectrum, however.
the pictures showed fewer connections to the same parts of their brain, suggesting they were unable to learn the words they were presented with.
Researchers also showed participants pictures of unfamiliar or unfamiliar words and asked if they remembered.
When people with ASD were asked to recall familiar words, the regions of the prefrontal lobe that make decisions and planning processes were more activated.
That suggests that, when they had more to learn, they were able more readily to make connections between the familiar words and the unfamiliar words.
That’s a problem for people who might be better at remembering words than people with the condition who don’t have the disorder.
“This study demonstrates that we need to do a lot more work on the brain to understand how it’s possible for the brain and the brain changes that occur in ASD to cause this sort of learning,” said Dr. Paul Schechter, an associate professor at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.
The researchers are currently studying the connections between different regions of brain to see if this kind of plasticity can be used to teach people to write or read new words.
It is unclear whether people who have autism spectrum will develop autism.
It has been hypothesized that people with schizophrenia or bipolar disorder may be able to gain new words and learn them more quickly than people without these disorders.
But the study doesn’t provide evidence that this would happen in people with learning disabilities, said Dr: Sarah Fiske, a researcher in the Department of Psychiatry at Yale University School of Psychiatry.
“It’s a big step forward in understanding what might be happening in these people,” Fiskee said.
“There are still some important questions that need to be answered, and this is a very promising area of research.”
The research team also has plans to continue looking at the neural connections that connect the different parts in the brain.
If they can figure out which areas are particularly important in these areas, they might be able eventually to figure the best way to help people with disabilities learn new skills.
“We are hopeful that we can develop new treatments that will help people recover from autism,” Schechters said.
