Researchers discover a link between reduced functional activation and reduced cortical thickness in the brains of patients with bipolar disorder.
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.
Early-life exposure to antibiotics may impact brain signaling pathways associated with social behavior and pain regulation. Young mice treated with antibiotics had reduced expression of receptors that mediate endorphin, oxytocin, and vasopressin signaling in the frontal cortex.
Researchers discover face pareidolia, a phenomenon where people 'see' faces on objects such as toast or in clouds, is based on physical causes.
tDCS may help retrain cognitive patterns associated with anxiety and depression, a new study reports.
Using fMRI neuroimaging, researchers pinpoint areas of the brain which are crucial for processing music.
Mouse study reveals slow-wave brain activity, which is indicative of sleep and resting states, is controlled by the claustrum. The synchronization of active and silent states across the brain via the slow waves contributes to consciousness.
