A new study challenges a long standing evolutionary theory regarding our 'uniquely' expansive brain. Researchers report other animals had energy hungry brains long before humans.
A new study examines the link between brain development and the bones of the skull roof during the evolutionary transition from dinosaur to bird.
University of Manchester researchers have identified a genetic disease that appears to affect the size of the brain, leading to developmental problems. The disease is linked to mutations in the RAC1 gene.
Study reveals we may have first evolved larger brains that allows for adaptions which enhanced brain regions controlling specific abilities.
A new study challenges the belief that human tooth size decreased and brain size grew at similar rates through our evolution.
Researchers have determined that the human brain has the highest number of cortical neurons of any primate brain, but the prefrontal region contains the same proportion of neurons and fills the same relative volume as that of non-human primates.
A new study suggests regular physical activity may lead to greater hippocampal volume and could stave off dementia, especially in older people.
A new review reports on associations between birth defects in offspring and its father's age, alcohol use and other environmental factors.
