Physicists report their findings about neurons and brain activity goes against conventional belief and could call into question thousands of scientific studies. They also believe their findings could impact new research into the origins of neurodegenerative diseases.
A new study using piglets shows prebiotics used in baby formula can enhance memory and learning, as well as altering brain chemistry.
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 use holographic projection into the brain to activate and suppress neurons. The technology has the ability to copy real patterns of brain activity and trick the brain into perceiving sensory information. The technology could have implications for the development of new prosthetics and brain implants.
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.
A new article looks at theories of consciousness and novel research aimed at providing a better understanding of the roots of consciousness.
A new study reports a short burst of exercise can dramatically improve long term retention of new motor skills.
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.
