Entropy during consciousness is higher than during unconscious states.
Blue Brain Project shows our brains operate on many different dimensions, not just the three we are accustomed to.
Higher intelligence was associated with higher temporal stability of brain network modularity. Brain regions of the dorsal attention network contributed most to the observed effect.
Researchers have identified specific brain networks that helps us associate objects with their names. The study sheds light on how the brain connects meaning to words and could help explain why people with neurodegenerative diseases often have problems naming every day objects.
Adaptive brain networking following injury can have long term implications for brain health, a new study reports.
McGill researchers report those who suffer from traumatic experiences during childhood, like severe abuse, show significant abnormalities in the structure and cell function in the anterior cingulate cortex, an area of the brain associated with emotion and mood regulation. Researchers believe these changes may contribute to depressive disorders and suicidal ideations, often considered a long term effect of trauma suffered during early life.
Researchers have created a computer model based on the dynamics of brain cells and its neural connections. They hope the model will help them understand why certain portions of the brain work together when a person daydreams.
Researchers visualize different activation systems in the brain.
According to a new study, adolescence may be a crucial period for remodeling of the human brain.
A new study places the appearance of modern humanlike cognition at the emergence of Homo erectus 1.8 million years ago, 600,000 years before the appearance of Neanderthals.
