Rat R222 was born with hydrocephalus. Neuroimaging revealed most of its brain had compressed and collapsed as it filled with fluid. However, despite its condition, the animal was still able to see, hear, smell, and feel like other animals. The study sheds new light on neuroplasticity, and the findings could have implications for the development of new machine learning technologies.
A brief dissonance-based eating disorder prevention program alters how young women's brains respond to images of super thin supermodels, a new study reports.
Researchers report the amygdala may play a bigger role in facial recognition than previously thought. According to a new study, the amygdala responds more specifically to images of the face than the fusiform face area does.
A new study may provide key insights into the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease. Researchers report people with higher levels of amyloid beta showed less activity in brain areas associated with working memory when engaged in cognitively demanding tasks.
Researchers report a person's ability to quit smoking could be influenced by a neural network associated with inhibiting automated behavior.
Combining neuroimaging data and deep learning technologies, researchers have developed a model of the human brain that simulates patterns of neurological impairment better than existing models.
Researchers have developed a new method to observe brain activity during natural reading.
