Researchers report they can use brain activation patterns to identify complex thoughts. Their findings suggest the building blocks for complex human thoughts are not word based, but formed by the brain's sub systems. The study provides evidence that the neural dimensions of concept representation are universal across people and languages.
A new study reports a short burst of exercise can dramatically improve long term retention of new motor skills.

Fetal exposure to SRI antidepressants may affect the brain activity in newborns, a new study reports.
Higher activity in the anterior prefrontal cortex was associated with more resilience to the effects of post-traumatic stress.
According to researchers, people with diabetes may be at increased risk of suffering from depression as a result of biological problems in regulating sugar levels that influence emotional response in the brain. Using EEG, researchers discovered those with higher levels of insulin resistance showed greater response to negative images.
