A new neuroimaging study shows how the brain changes throughout life. The study has helped researchers create a standard curve which can assess whether people are facing neurological problems as they age.
Researchers report they have discovered a defect in a cell signaling pathway which contributes to the build-up of amyloid beta in those with Alzheimer's.
A new study reports by deleting the NrCAM gene, researchers believe they have found a potential way to prune back the neural connections implicated in ASD.
Researchers have developed a new way of mapping neural networks in living organisms.
Researchers report spontaneous mutations of the TBR1 gene could be a cause of autism.
A new study reports researchers have discovered the neural basis for confidence in rat brains.
Researchers have identified a control mechanism for an area of the brain which processes sensory and emotive information.
A new study reports researchers have discovered a novel mechanism in the brain which is involved in the formation of memory and learning.
A new neuroimaging study links kappa opioid receptors in the brain to a narrow cluster of symptoms associated with PTSD.
A new study reports people with facial paralysis are often perceived by others as being less happy simply because they are unable to express emotion with their faces.
Researchers discover a strong association between the structural integrity of white matter tracks in the brain and the level of physical activity older people engage in daily.
A lapse in function in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex is partly responsible for people caving into their high calorie cravings, a new study reports.
Researchers identify 'sleep node' in the mammalian brain. Its activity appears to be necessary and sufficient to produce deep sleep.
Genetics factors could contribute to the development of language during infancy, a new study reports.
A new study adds to the developing evidence of the role genetics plays in some cases of PTSD.
