Researchers report dendritic learning leads to a universal phenomenon that all brains are composed of the same wide spectrum of links.
A new study challenges long held beliefs about how learning occurs. Researchers suggest learning occurs in dendrites that are in closer proximity to neurons, as opposed to occurring solely in synapses.
Physicists report their findings about neurons and brain activity goes against conventional belief and could call into question thousands of scientific studies. They also believe their findings could impact new research into the origins of neurodegenerative diseases.
According to researchers, our desire to take more control over our actions may actually be hindering our ability for self-control.
According to a new study, the brain blocks the ability for creating new memories shortly after waking in order to prevent the disruption of the stabilization of memory consolidation that occurs during sleep.
