What can a fish tell us about human brain development? Researchers at Duke University Medical Center transplanted a set of...
Research just published by scientists at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) links gene mutations found in some patients with Meier-Gorlin syndrome (MGS) with specific cellular dysfunctions that are thought to give rise to a particularly extreme version of dwarfism, small brain size, and other manifestations of abnormal growth which generally characterize that rare condition.
Researchers have identified a gene which could help explain why the human brain is larger than those of other animals.
A new study reports the human brain exhibits greater plasticity than the brains of chimpanzees, which may have accounted for part of our evolution.
A new study reports carnivores with larger brain compared to body size are better at complex problem solving.
