Heartbeat evoked potential provides evidence of the presence of consciousness in coma patients, a new study reveals.
Brain activity alters over the heartbeat cycle, helping us make sure certain information is kept out of our conscious experience. The findings provide a conceptual framework to explain how internal signals integrate into our conscious perception of the world.
From designing drugs to help suppress traumatic memories, to harnessing the power of heartbeats, researchers are searching for new therapies to help people overcome their fears and phobias.
Using a new technique called amplified MRI, researchers capture the brain in motion as the heart beats.
In order to reduce anxiety, the human brain suppresses the sensory effects of the heartbeat, a new study reports.
