A new study brings into question conventional theories of the neuroscience of free will. Researchers found readiness potential reflects neural activity that underlies the formation of a decision to move, rather than the outcome to move.
Following deep anesthesia, consciousness and cognitive processes unfold over time. The prefrontal cortex is the first brain area to recover, with areas associated with reaction time and attention taking longer to return to pre-anesthesia states.
Researchers have successfully recorded brain signatures of movement symptoms and deep brain stimulation of Parkinson's patients in real time. The findings could lay the groundwork for personalize therapies for those with the neurodegenerative disease.
Propofol, the commonly used anesthetic, alters and controls the dynamics of the brain's rhythms. The findings can help doctors better monitor patients under anesthesia with the aid of EEG.
Heartbeat evoked potential provides evidence of the presence of consciousness in coma patients, a new study reveals.
Study reveals we all have the capacity to think about others as well as ourselves, but thinking about one's self takes precedence.

Combining brain activity data with artificial intelligence, researchers generated faces based upon what individuals considered to be attractive features.
Specific brain regions respond in opposing ways when exposed to emotional stimuli associated with loneliness and wisdom.
A new mathematical algorithm examines data from EEG and brain implants to learn each epilepsy patient's unique brain pattern signatures. The system can predict the onset of a seizure within an hour, allowing the patient to take necessary interventions.
During REM sleep, people are able to interact with researchers and engage in real-time communication. The study reports while dreaming, people can follow instructions, perform simple math, answer yes and no questions, and tell the difference between different sensory stimuli.
More focus needs to be placed on neural variability to better understand how behavior emerges from the brain.
