A new study reveals unique functional brain networks associated with characteristic behaviors of ASD in infants at risk of developing autism.
Those who are more mindful are less caught up in the experience of pain, and report feeling less pain than those who are less mindful, a new study reports. Researchers say higher disposition mindfulness during painful heat is associated with greater deactivation of the posterior cingulate cortex.
Researchers say those who use both cannabis and nicotine have greater brain connectivity that those who take one or the other. The networks of those who used both substances closely resembled those who people who took neither drug.
Researchers turn to neuroscience to help explain why some people are more creative than others.
Researchers have identified a brain network that is involved in helping an infant learn to walk. Additionally, disruptions in the network may predict future risk of a child being diagnosed with ASD.
Researchers report they have discovered where the earliest signs of Alzheimer's may occur in the brain. Initial accumulation of Alzheimer's associated amyloid beta was discovered in an important functional network, the default mode network.
