Study reveals the mechanisms behind distinct patterns of electrical activity in neuron groups that accompany the onset of seizures.
Using transcranial alternating current stimulation, researchers were able to influence the activity of specific brain areas and manipulate the abilities processed by them. Findings suggest tACS could be used to improve, direct, and attenuate the flow of information in the brain.
Oral contraceptive use is associated with blunted stress response and brain activity differences during working memory tasks in women who started using birth control during puberty. Early adulthood exposure to oral contraceptives was linked to significant structural changes in brain areas associated with memory and emotional processing.
Researchers combine machine learning, EEG, and new functional imaging technology to dynamically map a neural signal's source and underlying brain networks.
Higher similarity in brain activity was noted while students watched educational clips they ranked as most appealing. The findings could help content creators to use neuroscience data in the creation of strong educational materials.
Using ECoG and machine learning, researchers decoded spoken words and phrases in real-time from brain signals that control speech. The technology could eventually be used to help those who have lost vocal control to regain their voice.
Researchers report increases in cortical responses to infants' faces between the prenatal to postnatal period is associated with more positive relationships with the baby after birth.
A new study reports a short burst of exercise can dramatically improve long term retention of new motor skills.
A new article looks at theories of consciousness and novel research aimed at providing a better understanding of the roots of consciousness.
