Working memory isn't confined to one area of the brain. It requires synchronous activity of at least two brain areas.
Depending on the network state, certain neurons in the primary somatosensory cortex can be more or less excitable, which shapes stimulus processing in the brain.
A worldwide scientific collaboration has produced the first genetic map of the cerebral cortex. The map identifies more than 300 genetic variants that influence cortical structure and play roles in psychiatric disorders.
The hand knob area of the premotor cortex operates across a wide range of motor functions and body areas.
Study shows how brain networks unique to each child can predict cognition. Using a combination of neuroimaging data and machine learning, researchers reveal functional neuroanatomy can vary greatly among children and is refined during development.
Having a parent with an alcohol use disorder affects how your brain transitions between active and resting states, regardless of your own drinking habits.
The first MRI-based mapping of the squid brain yields 145 new connections and pathways, 60% of which are linked to the motor and visual systems. The new brain map brings researchers one step closer to understanding how the squid can instantly camouflage itself.

FlyEM, a team of scientists from Google and the Janelia Research Campus at Howard Hughes Medical Institute, has released the most complete map of the fly brain ever created. The map pinpoints millions of connections between 25,000 neurons. The researchers have made the data free online, along with all of the tools necessary to use it.
