Animals slowly shift their likelihood of detecting stimulus changes over ten minutes. Researchers found the activity of neural populations from the V4 visual area and prefrontal cortex slowly drifted together with the behavioral fluctuations. The slow drift acts as an impulsivity signal.
A neuroimaging study reveals the neural mechanism behind auditory attention.
Sustained hits following one season of playing football are enough to cause structural alterations to the brain. When players sustain a concussion, structural brain integrity decreases, and levels of tau increase. Researchers say, while concussions are a prime concern for those who play football, sustained hits also pose a threat to neurological health.
Higher levels of lead in topsoil have been linked to an increased risk of cognitive impairments, learning difficulties, and problems with decision making in 5-year-old boys.

BOLD5000, a new, large scale data set of brain scans of people viewing images, is helping researchers to better understand how the brain processes images. The data set is a big step towards using computer visual models to study biological vision.
A new study reports computer simulations have helped to identify the drug's binding sites.
Researchers report that when the brain "reads" or decodes a sentence in English or Portuguese, its neural activation patterns are the same.
There is no gender disparity in how children learn and perform math tasks.
