Researchers identified how the primary visual cortex and the lateromedial area of the cerebral cortex influence one another, and how this communication changes over rapid timespans.
Some neurons in the cerebral cortex show higher spontaneous activity during general anesthesia than when awake, and this activity is synchronized across the cortical cells.
A new study sheds light on the movement of neurons throughout the brain during fetal development. Researchers also found the two hemispheres of the human cortex separated earlier in development than previously thought.
Study reveals axon density is lower than previously believed between distant regions of the brain.
Specific genes that contribute as risks for developing schizophrenia also affect the thickness and size of the brain's surface.
Researching the mechanics of how brain wrinkles and folds form may hold the key to understanding how brain disorders occur and identifying new treatment options.
A new framework reveals Alzheimer's disease is far more complex than previously believed. Rather than being a disease where the same causes produce the same outcomes, researchers found three different models for the disease, each with its own characterizations and dynamics.
