A new study examines the relationship of fMRI maps of the brain’s resting state with the brain’s underlying neurological and anatomical structure.
Specific Reading Comprehension Deficits (S-RCD), a common reading disorder often goes undiagnosed until it becomes problematic, according to a new study.
Researchers have identified the different brain regions and interactions involved in accents and impersonations.
Using neuroimaging, researchers discover that stroke patients’ brains show strong cortical motor activity when watching others perform physical tasks. The findings offer new insight into potential stroke rehabilitation therapy.
Women who regularly consumed probiotic bacteria through yogurt showed altered brain function, both while in resting start and in response to emotion recognition tasks, a new study suggests.
Using neuroimaging technology, researchers note increased activity in areas of the brain associated with empathy in subjects who underwent compassion training.
Anti-Smoking Ads with Strong Arguments, Not Flashy Editing, Trigger Part of Brain That Changes Behavior
Researchers discovered a part of the brain involved in future behavioral changes, the dorsomedial prefrontal cortex, had greater activation when smokers were exposed to anti-smoking messages with stronger arguments as opposed to weaker arguments.
A new study reveals neural circuitry is hyperactivated by performing certain tasks for children with a family history of schizophrenia, compare to peers without this family history. As the differences in brain function appear prior to the onset of psychiatric symptoms, researchers believe the findings could point to vulnerability markers for schizophrenia.
Neurons in the specific brain area responsible for processing faces are too broadly “tuned” in some patients with autism, leading to difficulties in discriminating between the facial features of different individuals, a new study suggests.
Comparing fMRI scans of human brains and those of rhesus monkeys, researchers believe they have new evidence which proves humans have unique cortical brain networks.
