A new statistical model lays groundwork for understanding how ketamine induces an anesthetic response, steps to monitor unconscious patients, and provides new information about brain activity while unconscious.
Reductions in reaction time, memory, and other neuropsychological problems persist for at least seven days following a ten-day period of insufficient sleep.
The stronger the connection between the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and temporal-parietal junction, the less likely people are to punish others for selfish deeds.
A new brain-machine interface allows wearers to wirelessly control a wheelchair or robotic arm by simply imagining an action. The neuroprosthesis could help improve the quality of life for those with disabilities.
A new study warns of potential social, ethical, and legal consequences of brain-machine interfaces and other technologies that interact with the human brain.
Combining EEG data and MRI brain scans, researchers discovered how, during sleep, the hippocampus sends memory information it has stored throughout the day to the cerebral cortex, allowing for memory consolidation.
Daydreaming and mind-wandering appear to occur when parts of the brain fall asleep while other areas remain awake.
A new deep neural network can accurately predict a healthy person's brain age based on EEG data collected from a sleep study.
The resting brain repeatedly and rapidly replays faster memories of what a person has recently learned and practiced. The more a person replays the memory during rest, the better they become during subsequent sessions where they practice their newly learned skill.
