Researchers report a person's ability to quit smoking could be influenced by a neural network associated with inhibiting automated behavior.
Using neuroimaging and Alice in Wonderland, researchers identify how the temporal lobe supports an unconscious language parsing process.
A new study reports the more we are provided with contradictory evidence, the more stubborn we become about our political beliefs.
Neuroimaging research from NIH/NIAAA provides a new method to characterize how brain activity relates to glucose consumption, which could help us understand how alcohol and other substances and activities affect our brains.
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.
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.
Despite previous findings, researchers have found precapillary sphincters in the brain. The study reports the precapillary sphincters may play a major role in disturbances of the brain's blood supply and blood pressure.
A new study reports the ability to modulate brain activity when it comes to shutting off processes irrelevant to a task may be compromised in older people.
