A new, whole brain map of neural connectivity reveals low frequency activity rhythms drive communication between key areas involved in memory processing.
Researchers report they’ve pinpointed the precise location in the human brain, called the ventromedial prefrontal cortex, that controls belief and doubt, and which explains why some of us are more gullible than others.
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.
In an effort to understand what happens in the brain when a person reads or considers such abstract ideas as...
Individual variations define a specific structural fingerprint with a direct impact on the functional organization of individual brains. The findings stress the importance of using individual models to understand brain function.
Zif proteins have been found to control whether a brain stem cell differentiates into a neuron or renews as a brain stem cell. There are Zif related proteins in humans that may be targeted by new treatments for brain cancer and other diseases.
