A new study sheds additional light on how the brain consolidates memory during sleep. Researchers report rapid fluctuations in gamma band activity in the hippocampus during nREM sleep helps facilitate memory reactivation.
Researchers shed light on the neural mechanisms behind risk taking behaviors. The study reveals the decision to 'up the ante', even when faced with long odds, is a result of an internal bias that adds up over time and involves a 'push pull' dynamic between the two hemispheres of the brain.
Neuroimaging study reveals veterans who suffered a mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) have higher levels of fast, high-frequency gamma waves in the prefrontal and posterior parietal lobes, areas of the brain associated with consciousness, attention and problem-solving.
Study reveals specific brain wave patterns that underlie the ability to remove irrelevant learned associations to make way for new, updated information. The research shows a particular behavior can be dependent on the synchronization of high-frequency brain waves in different parts of the brain.
