Researchers report personality traits in chimpanzees are correlated to the size of their hippocampus. The study reports greater hippocampal volume is linked to an increase in alpha behavior and decreased self regulatory function.
According to researchers, a chimpanzees' general intelligence is correlated with their ability to delay gratification and exert self control.
Researchers have rewired the neural circuits of one species and given its connections to a new species. The study answers a number of questions about evolution of neural circuits and behavior.
The microglia in women's brains are more active in regions involved in pain processing, a new study reports.
A new study using fruit fly models could help researchers better understand the genetic and neural bases of detecting cold or painful stimuli.
