Children Notice What Adults Miss, Study Finds

Although adults can beat children at most cognitive tasks, new research shows that children’s limitations can sometimes be their strength. In two studies, researchers found that adults were very good at remembering information they were told to focus on, and ignoring the rest. In contrast, 4- to 5-year-olds tended to pay attention to all the information that was presented to them – even when they were told to focus on one particular item.

Who Kills a Child?

The neuropsychological profiles of murderers who solely kill children differ significantly from the profiles of those who kill children and adults in the same homicidal act, according to a new study. Murderers of children are impulsive, have lower intelligence and often mental illness. Identifying the differences in the two types of killers adds to the very limited research on the topic and could help predict which children may be at risk.
