Studying juvenile zebra finches, researchers discover a mechanism which could possibly be responsible for the differences in the intensity of song learning.
A neuroimaging study finds profound brain activity abnormalities in a group of retired NFL players.
Researchers find definitive brain alterations in veterans with GWI, caused as the result of exposure to neurotoxic chemicals during the first Gulf War. The study confirms working memory is affected in those with GWI.
Researchers find the differences in primate brains can be explained as a consequence of the same genetic program.
Researchers discover how a smile confuses out emotional recognition and can make us perceive a face as happy, even if it is not.
Researchers discover Pleurobranchaea californica, a predatory sea slug which normally isn't a picky eater, has more cognitive abilities than previously believed; allowing them to lean the warning cues of dangerous pray and avoiding them in the future.
Comparing fMRI scans of human brains and those of rhesus monkeys, researchers believe they have new evidence which proves humans have unique cortical brain networks.
New research into concussions sustained during sports shows damage to the brain can persist for decades after an original or head trauma. The long-term consequences of concussions include memory loss, attention deficits and motor control problems.
A new study sheds light on how the brain encodes objects with multiple features, a fundamental task for the perceptual system. Researchers suggest neurons that encode a certain feature, such as shape or color, fire in synchrony with neurons that encode other features of the same object.
