Researchers identified several brain areas that acted as hubs for information processing across brain networks that contribute to memory recall. They observed how activation patterns within these networks differed on an individual level, based on personal levels of recall detail and imagination.
Researchers were able to ascertain the colors people were seeing by looking at their brain activity. The study reveals we have unique brain activity associated with specific colors.
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.
