A new study suggests early musical training has a significant effect on the development of the brain. Practicing instruments before the age of seven boosts the normal maturation of connections between motor and sensory regions of the brain, researchers suggest.
Researchers map the underlying brain circuitry which keeps mice from biting their tongues as they eat.
Studies of lucid dreamers visualise which centers of the brain become active when we become aware of ourselves. Studies demonstrate that a specific cortical network consisting of the right dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, the frontopolar regions and the precuneus is activated when this lucid consciousness is attained.
Researchers have released a massive selection of neonatal and newborn baby brain scans that can help other scientists conduct additional research on human brain development.
Researchers discover a surprising degree of variation among the genomes of individual neurons taken from the same brain.
A new MRI study reveals the brain retains neural 'fingerprints' of a missing hand, decades after amputation and regardless of whether the person experiences phantom limb sensations.
Scientists at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have adapted brain-computer interfaces to listen to regions of the brain that control speech.
