Neuroscience News Home

Neuroscience News is an independent open access science magazine. Since 2001, we have featured neuroscience research news from labs, universities, hospitals and news departments around the world. Topics include brain research, AI, psychology, neuroscience, mental health and neurotech.

Science news articles cover neuroscience, neurology, psychology, AI, mental health, robotics, neurotechnology and cognitive sciences.

Researchers created the first complete chromosome sequences from non-human primates, revealing significant variations in Y chromosomes among species. This groundbreaking study provides crucial insights into the rapid evolution of these chromosomes and previously unexplored regions of great ape genomes.

Neurology news articles cover neurology, brain cancer, traumatic brain injuries, neurosurgery, neuroanatomy, brain research and neurological disorders.

Researchers developed a transparent skull implant allowing high-resolution brain imaging with functional ultrasound (fUSI). This innovative method enables precise monitoring of brain activity without invasive surgery, offering potential benefits for patients with neurological conditions.
A new study examined the impact of caffeine on brain dopamine function in Parkinson's patients, finding no benefits on disease progression. High caffeine consumption was linked to a greater decrease in dopamine transporter binding, likely due to a compensatory mechanism rather than neuron loss.

AI news articles cover science articles about artificial intelligence including ChatGPT, Bard, Dalle, neural networks, machine learning, LLMs, AGI and other AI related topics.

AI technology could help alleviate loneliness, argue robotics experts. New research suggests that AI companionship can offer social interaction and help people practice social skills, breaking the cycle of loneliness.
A new study reveals that the brain prioritizes remembering images that are harder to explain. Researchers used a computational model and behavioral experiments to show that scenes difficult for the model to reconstruct were more memorable to participants.
Researchers developed an AI model of the fruit fly brain to understand how vision guides behavior. By genetically silencing specific visual neurons and observing changes in behavior, they trained the AI to predict neural activity and behavior accurately. Their findings reveal that multiple neuron combinations, rather than single types, process visual data in a complex "population code." This breakthrough paves the way for future research into the human visual system and related disorders.

Science research articles cover psychology, depression, mental health, schizophrenia, mental disorders, happiness, stress, PTSD, autism, psychiatry and therapy.

A new study links loneliness and difficulties in emotion regulation to problematic pornography use (PPU). The research found that people who interacted with online content creators reported lower PPU.

Researchers found that a hormone-producing cell in the adrenal glands may explain why oldfield mice are monogamous while their close relatives are promiscuous. This hormone, 20⍺-OHP, boosts nurturing behavior, suggesting a link to monogamy.
Researchers explore the intricate mechanisms of memory and debunk common myths about its function. They argue that memory is not a static recording but a dynamic, editable process akin to a Wiki page, and emphasize that forgetting is a normal part of how our brains prioritize information.
A new study finds that altered states of consciousness (ASCs), like those experienced during meditation, are more common than previously thought. 45% of respondents reported experiencing ASCs at least once, often leading to positive outcomes. However, a significant minority also reported negative or even life-threatening suffering, highlighting the need for better support and understanding of these experiences.
