Connectedness to nature not only improves mental and physical health, it also influences dietary choices and fruit and vegetable intake.
Study reveals why select members of a termite community experience brain changes in anticipation of cognitive demands.
Reduced activity in the prefrontal cortex during virtual reality creative self-expression tasks indicates an enhanced relaxation response.
Neuroimaging study sheds light on what drove the evolutionary development of human creativity.
Using neuroimaging and EEG technology to analyze the brains of jazz musicians during improvisation, researchers shed light on which side of the brain controls creativity. Musicians relatively inexperienced at improvisation rely on the right hemisphere for creativity. More experienced improvisational jazz musicians show more activity in the left hemisphere when being creative.
A new brain training game in which players navigate a grocery store, earning rewards for selecting healthy food options, may help to reduce the desire to give into sugar cravings.
