A new map of the octopus visual system classifies different types of neurons in a part of the brain dedicated to vision, shedding new light on the evolution of the brain and visual systems in a more broad sense.
Researchers have developed a new method to measure the delay of neurotransmission in those with multiple sclerosis that does not involve direct stimulation but instead used neural avalanches, or bursts of activity in cascades that spontaneously travel across the brain.
Researchers have mapped the brain development of fetuses with spinal bifida aperta between 21-34 weeks of gestation. The new brain map has been released via open access to help further research and monitoring of SBA throughout fetal development.
Researchers have mapped four new areas of the human anterior prefrontal cortex that play critical roles in cognitive processing. Two of these newly mapped areas are larger in females than in males.
Brain mapping study identifies important neural networks and their connections that appear to enhance the conscious experience.
