Researchers report the impairment of the right thalamic and caudate prefrontal pathways appear to be associated with attention deficits in patients following a stroke.
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 join their own experiments as test subjects to evaluate different brain networks. Using neuroimaging to scan their brains, researchers created individual detailed maps of neural connections.
Researchers report looking at neural networks in the brain, rather than just specific regions, could shed new light on why some brain injuries are worse than others.
Blue Brain Project shows our brains operate on many different dimensions, not just the three we are accustomed to.
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.
Adaptive brain networking following injury can have long term implications for brain health, a new study reports.
According to a new study, adolescence may be a crucial period for remodeling of the human brain.
