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.
A new neuroimaging study finds many Alzheimer's patients and those at risk of developing the disease show a combination of atrophy factors.
A worldwide scientific collaboration has produced the first genetic map of the cerebral cortex. The map identifies more than 300 genetic variants that influence cortical structure and play roles in psychiatric disorders.
A new study reports the human brain exhibits greater plasticity than the brains of chimpanzees, which may have accounted for part of our evolution.
Researchers have discovered neural progenitor cells in the meninges.
