High resolution imaging reveals the human cerebellum is 80% of the area of the cortex. The findings indicate this area of the brain likely grew larger as human behavior and cognition evolved.
A new study challenges the assumption of many scientists, that the most active neurons involved in complex activity are also the most important in controlling behavior.
A new study describes the vascular architecture within the cerebral cortex, exploring what the structure means for neuroimaging and the onset of dementia.
A new study reveals pericyte degeneration may influence the development of Alzheimer's disease.
fMRI brain scans reveal semantic tuning during both reading and listening to words are highly correlated in selective areas of the cerebral cortex. The new brain maps enabled researchers to accurately predict which words would active specific regions of the cortex.
Researchers have successfully recreated the whisker map a mouse creates of its surroundings to help it navigate the world, catch food and avoid predators.
