A new study on the International Space Station is being conducted to help researchers understand how the brain changes in space and develop ways to deal with those changes.
A new neuroimaging study shows how the brain changes throughout life. The study has helped researchers create a standard curve which can assess whether people are facing neurological problems as they age.
A new study reports children and teens who face chronic bullying have altered brain structure, as well as problems with anxiety and depression. Researchers found those who were bullies had structural changes to the putamen and caudate, contributing to the development of anxiety related behaviors and emotional processing.

An individual's level of general knowledge is associated with structural brain network connectivity. Fluid intelligence is best predicted by cortex volume in males, and by functional network connectivity in females.
Spending time performing household chores may help to improve brain health, especially for older adults. Researchers found older adults who spent more time engaging in housework had greater brain volume, specifically in the frontal lobe and hippocampus, brain areas associated with memory and cognition.
