International Journal of Cognition and Behaviour is an open access, peer reviewed journal that deals with the aspects of cognition and behaviour that mainly relates to learning and memory, language acquisition, knowledge processes and the way in which the brains normally represent and process information in the context of specific cognitive disorders. The journal is open and integrates traditional psychophysical methods, advanced cellular and molecular biology techniques and modern brain-scan technology for cognitive, behavioural and neural plasticity studies.

All the researchers, clinicians and other academic professionals can publish their findings from areas such as advanced paternal age and neurodevelopmental disorders, brain and action, circuits that mediate learning and extinction of conditioned fear, epigenetic regulation of psychiatric disorders, imaging neuroscience, neurogenic regulation of cognition, neurotrophin receptor signalling and cholinergic function, selective attention and multisensory integration, sensory neuroecology, vision, navigation and 'cognition' in animals with simple nervous systems, and applications to robotics, visual attention, neurodevelopmental disorders, etc.

The Effects of Cognitive Enhancement Drug (Coluracetam) on Visual Perception, Abstract Reasoning, Pattern Recognition, Spatial Orientation, and Analytical Thinking: A Case Study

Maureen Lorence Villarino and Resti Tito Villarino

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: March 17, 2023

New medications to treat cognitive disorders may improve cognition in healthy individuals. However, limited studies were conducted on its efficacy among individuals without cognitive deficiencies. Thus, this case study aimed to explore the effects of using a cognitive enhancement drug (Coluracetam) on visual perception, abstract reasoning, pattern recognition, spatial orientation, and analytical thinking in a healthy adult male for three months....

Language Processing in Arabic Diglossia: Evidence for Memory-Based Automaticity

Rabab Hashem

Article Type: Original Research | First Published: April 14, 2022

Diglossia in Arabic refers to the existence of two distinct varieties: Spoken Arabic (SA), which is used orally in daily communication, and literary Arabic (LA), used in reading, writing, and for formal functions. Similarly, bilinguals often use different languages (L1, L2) for different purposes, so the question presents itself: Is Arabic diglossia a type of bilingualism? Because behavioral and fMRI studies provide contradictory answers, the current paper develops a cognitive account grounded i...

Intracerebellar Microinjection of an H4 Agonist Impairs Memory Consolidation in Open Field and Rotarod Tasks in Mice

C.E.M. Fernandes, E.M. Guilherme, K.R. Serafim, A.C.L. Gianlorenço and R. Mattioli

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: April 21, 2021

The cerebellum is known to participate in motor functions, but the role of the histaminergic system, and specifically the H4 receptors, in its functions is still unclear. In the present study, we investigated the effects of intravermis microinjections of an H4 receptor agonist (VUF-8430) on mice behavior undergoing a rotarod (Experiment 1) and open field (Experiment 2) test. The cerebellar vermis of male mice was implanted with a single guide cannula. All experiments were performed on two consec...

Chiasmus as an Alternative Pattern of Teaching

Dhouha Bacha, Wael Ferjaoui, Lasaad Gharbi, Sana Ben Slama and Ahlem Lahmar

Article Type: Editorial | First Published: October 15, 2020

Etymologically the word chiasm comes from the Greek word khiasmós which means crossing. The chiasm construction is a repetition crossing 2 segments A-B around a center C creating an AB/C/BA structure. This is a rhetorical figure of speech expressing repetition. In linguistics, the purpose of repetition is the emphasis on the message to be conveyed. In pedagogy, the 3 goals of repetition are: Consolidation, deepening and feedback. In the domain of procedural knowledge, repetition makes it possib...

Cognitive Behaviour Assessment in Chronic Non Specific Low Back Pain: A Narrative Review

Seema Saini, Paresh Golwala, M.S., Lata Parmar, PhD, Devashish Tiwari, PhD, and Tushar J Palekar, PhD

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: October 15, 2020

Literature showed that patients with Chronic Low Back Pain (CLBP) have slowed speeds of information processing and working memory. Methods for assessment of cognition behaviour are decisive for the implementation Of Cognitive behavioural therapies. There remains a large component of the adherence process not assessed, while treating non specific chronic Low back Pain, and the known role for treatment appraisals and beliefs necessitating the pursuit of improved assessment methods. The purpose of ...

Mood Induction Can Enhance Cognitive Remediation in Depression

Meenakshi Banerjee and Keshav Kumar

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: October 01, 2020

Individuals suffering from Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) and those who are vulnerable to depression show biases in attention, memory, and interpretation. These individuals are likely to focus attention on and also tend to remember mood-congruent information. They are also likely to interpret uncertain scenarios in a negative manner. On the whole, these biases are known to affect their ability to interpret an emotional situation predominantly in a negative manner, which later develops into an e...

Neurophysiological Signature of Memory Performance during the DRM Task

Grégoire Favre, Sibylle K Horat, François R Herrmann, Isabelle Gothuey, Marco CG Merlo and Pascal Missonnier

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: July 31, 2020

The Deese-Roediger-McDermott (DRM) task is a typical experimental paradigm used to induce false memory production. Previous investigations using event-related potentials (ERPs) revealed differences in a late negative component, FN400, in healthy subjects performing the DRM. However, false memory production may be related to the earlier engagement of cortical circuits. To date, there is no study exploring the electrophysiological activation of early and late neural networks DRM-related in healthy...

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: July 25, 2020

The genetic predisposition for the psychological resilience has an essential role in the phenotype of adaptive and successful behavior, but the functional repertoire of bio-psychological bases for the adaptive personality growth is until uncompleted. Besides dopaminergic and serotoninergic system-related genes is required to reveal a new genetic target for understanding the potential biological mechanism of resilience. The object of this study was to examine the role of different genetic polymor...

Self-Esteem as the Mediating Factor between Parenting Styles and Creativity

Huong TM Pham and Betsy Ng

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: June 03, 2019

Creativity is increasingly valued as a skill for the future workplaces. Educators and employers are paying more and more attention to creativity training, the effectiveness of which relies on an understanding of creativity influencing factors. Yet, the seed for creativity might be sawn early in life and nurtured through years in family and school. Links between parenting styles and creativity have been reported in literature. However, parenting styles only explain for a small variation in creati...

Employing Kinect for Cognitive-Motor Assessment: A Feasibility Study

Uzi Levi, Roni Laslo-Roth and Eyal Rosenstreich

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: November 21, 2018

This study examined the feasibility of the Microsoft Kinect sensor for assessing mediolateral trunk sway and its associations with cognitive abilities. To this end, young adults and elderlies were sampled and performed various gait and balance tasks under single- and dual-task paradigms. Although reliable, Kinect's ability to assess cognition through movement was not conclusive. Specifically, the Kinect distinguished between young- and old-adults gait, but not between young-adults with and witho...

New Therapeutic Perspectives for the Cognitive Deficit in Alzheimer's Disease: Pharmacological Modulation of Ca2+/cAMP Signaling Interaction

Afonso Caricati Neto and Leandro Bueno Bergantin

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: November 18, 2017

Due to the involvement of the imbalance of Ca2+ homeostasis in neuronal cells in the pathogenesis of several neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's Disease (AD), the use of drugs to prevent or attenuate this imbalance emerged as a new therapeutic perspective for this disease. Then, our recent discovery of the involvement of the interaction between intracellular signaling pathways mediated by Ca2+ and cAMP (Ca2+/cAMP signaling interaction) in the neurotransmission and neuroprotection, an...
