Caudate stimulation enhances human associative learning
Associative learning allows an individual to acquire an association between a sensory cue and an outcome resulting from a specific response. Associative learning plays a vital role in the ability to learn new associations that allow human beings to optimally respond to the world around them. Research in humans and primates supports an important role for the caudate in associative learning. Our objective was to determine whether caudate stimulation could modulate associative learning in humans and to examine the neural circuitry involved in this process.

Later in life, he turned to creating figurative sculptures in wood and metal. What was done to censor Appel's controversial fresco in Amsterdam City Hall? Discuss

The Horae

The Horae, whose name literally means the "Hours," are three goddesses in Greek mythology who are said to control orderly life. Traditionally, there are thought to be two generations, or sets, of Horae: Thallo, Auxo, and Carpo—the goddesses of spring, summer, and autumn—and Eunomia, Dike, and Eirene, charged with maintaining the stability of society. In addition, there are the 12 tutelary goddesses also called hours, each of which presides over an hour of the day. Who parented the Horae? Discuss

Radiocarbon Dating

Radiocarbon dating is a method for determining the age of carbonaceous materials—especially ancient archaeological specimens—that relies on the presence of a naturally occurring isotope called carbon-14. After an organism dies, the amount of carbon-14 in its remains gradually decreases through radioactive beta decay. Measuring the amount of carbon-14 in an organism's remains thus allows scientists to determine how long it has been dead. How do atomic bombs affect atmospheric carbon-14 levels?

Caribou

Caribou, or reindeer, are wild, North American arctic and subarctic deer that are capable of traveling 3,000 mi (5,000 km) a year and reaching speeds of up to 50 mph (80 km/h). Each year, millions of caribou in northern Canada and Alaska migrate in large herds, using their wide, sharp-edged hooves to travel on snow and ice and even swim across wide lakes or rivers. Caribou derive their name from a word in the Mi'kmaq language meaning "snow-shoveler"—a reference to their habit of doing what?
