In what shouldn't be shocking news to neuroscientists, research has shown that mice brains can be altered by switching cages and changing mice environments. This research should serve as a reminder to all scientists to control as many variables as possible during research.
Large brains have been correlated with longevity in some animals. Despite many problems created by large brains such as energy consumption and birthing difficulties, species with large brains have been shown to live longer than those with smaller brains.
Thought control of prosthetic limbs via brain-controlled interfaces will be tested and developed with funding from DARPA. Human subjects will test neural interface systems used to control prosthetic limbs.
NT-020, a combination of nutrients, increased neural stem cell proliferation, neurogenesis and helped improve memory in the aging brains of mice.
Neuroscience research into the neuroscience of music shows that musicians' brains may be primed to distinguish meaningful sensory information from noise.
SIRT1 was again found to be important in learning and memory for mice, but boosting SIRT1 above the normal levels of expression did not lead to an improvement in learning and memory.
Reading P300 brain waves of people concealing information allows researchers to reliably predict the concealed information.
Some villages in Liberia have much higher rates of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, PTSD, than others.
