Our brains could process new situations by relying on a method similar to a "pointer" system used by computers, new research suggests.
Cannabis use leads to cognitive impairments that extend beyond the period of intoxication.
Researchers reveal eating nuts can help enhance cognitive function, learning and sleep. The study reveals pistachios produce the greatest gamma waves response, and peanuts produce an enhanced delta brain wave response.
Researchers have mapped four new areas of the human anterior prefrontal cortex that play critical roles in cognitive processing. Two of these newly mapped areas are larger in females than in males.
