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.
A new study reveals unique connections within brain networks in children on the autism spectrum. Researchers say, in ASD, the amygdala shows marked differences in connection with the occipital cortex than in typically developing children.
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 family with a rare genetic mutation are helping researchers answer important questions about how the human brain is wired. The family, who share an altered copy of the DCC gene, have less connectivity between areas where dopamine neurons originate and their target sites.
Researchers report individual differences in functional brain connectivity reflects differences in how certain intrinsic connectivity networks engage during decision making.
Researchers report on why some people experience aphantasia, the inability to imagine in images.
A new NIH study reveals abnormalities in brain glucose metabolism could be linked to the severity of Alzheimer's pathology.
