Study reveals a novel mechanism in locus coeruleus neurons caused by the loss of the GPT2 mitochondrial enzyme that is implicated in the development and progression of neurodegenerative diseases.
Neuroimaging study reveals how light-sensitive signals reach the brain and how regions associated with mood process those signals. Some regions of the cerebral cortex associated with cognitive and mood processing show sensitivity to light intensity.
"Neurograins" brain-computer interfaces independently record electrical impulses and send signals wirelessly to a central hub that coordinates and processes the signals.
For politically polarized people, their brain activity syncs up with like-minded people who share their political ideologies to perceive information in the same way. However, and regardless of political affiliation, those with personality traits linked to intolerance, and who were less tolerant of daily uncertainty, had more polarized brain responses than those who were more tolerant to uncertainty.
The BrainGate brain-machine interface is able to transmit signals from a single neuron resolution with full broadband fidelity without physically tethering the user to a decoding system.
During non-REM sleep, visual areas of the brain exhibit an excitation/inhibition balance indicative of increased plasticity. REM sleep appears to be essential for people to reap the benefits of the increased plasticity that occurs during NREM sleep.
On average, girls on the autism spectrum are diagnosed 1.5 years later than boys. Over 50% of those on the autism spectrum exhibit co-occurring mental health and medical conditions, such as ADHD and epilepsy.
Reward does not improve visual perception learning unless it is followed by a good night's sleep.
Using artificial intelligence and brain-computer interface technology, researchers reconstructed English words from neural signals recorded from the brains of non-human primates.
Peer pressure can shift an individual's punitive preference across a variety of contexts. Groups induce conformity by forcing less caution and more impulsivity in individuals, and by amplifying the value of punishment.
