Researchers provide possible new insights into psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia.
Prosopagnosia, or "face-blindness", involves an entire network, not just one area of the brain. The findings may shed light on poor facial processing abilities associated with autism.
A new study uncovers dynamic changes in the epigenome which occur during brain development.
The left and right brain areas are more similar in those with ASD. Reduced asymmetry was identified in cortical thickness across various brain regions in those on the autism spectrum.
A new study reports the serotonin system is made up of multiple parallel pathways that affect the brain in different, and sometimes opposing, ways.
A new study reports those with alcohol addiction who also smoke may be at an increased risk of neural damage. The study revealed higher levels of oxidative stress in the hippocampus, and a a decrease in neurotrophic factor in the striatum and frontal cortex in rats exposed to both alcohol and tobacco.
Study discussed the benefits of using psychedelics as an antidepressant option for those with depression.
Using fMRI neuroimaging, researchers pinpoint areas of the brain which are crucial for processing music.
Researchers may have solved one of the great mysteries of neuroscience; namely, why neurons in the temporal lobe are the first to die in Alzheimer's disease, and why dopaminergic neurons are damaged first in Parkinson's.
Study reveals a surprising level of similarity in brain structure and development between humans and other primates.
Transcranial alternating current brain stimulation (tACS) significantly reduced symptoms in people diagnosed with major depressive disorder in a pilot clinical trial.
A new study reveals the role the claustrum plays in cocaine addiction. Inhibiting claustral neurons prevented behavioral responses to cocaine in mouse models of addiction.
