1. An Analysis of Certain Neurocognitive Functions: An Exploration through the Practice of Yoga
Baljinder Singh Bal, Res. J. Language and Literature Sci., 2(10),1-3(2015)

View Abstract
Yoga has been practiced for thousands of years. It is based on ancient theories, observations and principles of the mind-body connections. It reduces stress, rejuvenates us and improves circulation. It creates a balance in our physical and mental states. There were many studies on yoga and its effects on physical function but with the phenomenal and ever increasing popularity of yogic practices in the past few years there is a surprising lack of research in this specific area. This prompted us to undertake this study with the aim to assess the effects of yogic asanas on neurocognitive parameters. Data were collected on One Hundred and Twenty (N=120), subjects between the age group of 21-26 years were selected. The subjects from Group A were subjected to a 6-week yogic asanas training programme. It is concluded that, the 6-week training programme of yogic asanas had significant effect on Memory, Processing Speed, Executive Function, Psychomotor Speed, Reaction Time, Complex Attention and Cognitive Flexibility.

2. Use of Demonstratives in Arabic and English: A Contrastive Study
Alaa Tariq Abood, Res. J. Language and Literature Sci., 2(10),4-7(2015)

View Abstract
This paper endeavors a corpus-based investigation of demonstratives in English and Arabic with two fundamental points. To start with, it talks about the encoded semantics of the demonstratives and contends for a unitary procedural semantics. Inside of the structure of Relevance Theory, it contends that the demonstratives encode procedural directions for the listener to recognize and divert his regard for an extraordinary element that is proximal or distal. Second, the paper endeavors to assess and think about various theories with respect to the syntactic, semantic and practical conduct of demonstratives which have been talked about before in English and different dialects. These incorporate the syntactic structure of definite expressions, and the connection between the demonstratives and their predecessors.
