Hippocampal Atrophy Seen with Early Cognitive Decline in Parkinson’s Disease Atrophy in the hippocampus, the region of the brain known...
Voluntary movements involve the coordinated activation of two brain pathways that connect parts of deep brain structures called the basal ganglia, according to a study in mice.
Future research into the underlying causes of neurological disorders such as autism, epilepsy and schizophrenia, should greatly benefit from a first-of-its-kind atlas of gene-enhancers in the cerebrum (telencephalon). This new atlas identifies and locates thousands of gene-regulating elements in a region of the brain that is of critical importance for cognition, motor functions and emotion.
Using an innovative brain-tracing technique, researchers discover a way to 'untangle' neural networks. The findings offer insight into how specific brain regions are connected.
Our brains could process new situations by relying on a method similar to a "pointer" system used by computers, new research suggests.
Researchers use neuroimaging techniques to reveal the true identities of the brains of Carl Friedrich Gauss and Conrad Heinrich Fuchs. The brains were incorrectly labelled over 150 years ago.
Researchers report children with Tourette syndrome may unconsciously train their brains more effectively to manage their tics.
Researchers have developed a simple MRI technique which could help with early diagnosis of Parkinson's disease.
Choice bias is a byproduct of learning from reward, a new study reports.
Researchers report the striatum acts as a sensory hub which integrates various types of sensory information.
Researchers have identified a control mechanism for an area of the brain which processes sensory and emotive information.
