A new study provides a rare, pathological version of how tau proteins can pass directly from neuron to neuron in the brain.
Researchers have identified three areas of the posterior cerebral cortex that bridge the brain's perception and memory systems.
Researchers report they have uncovered a gene responsible for brain development and also discovered how it may work.

With the first head transplant scheduled for 2018, many neuroscientists are skeptical the procedure will be a success. A new article questions if scientists, and the general population, will be ready for the procedure. What does it mean for the future of mankind?
