Long contractions of muscles in one hand increase involuntary reactions in the other. Findings shed new light on mirror activity and may help with better understanding the pathology of mirror movements in neurological disorders.
Researchers shed new light on the role the insula and frontoparietal brain regions play in a child's working memory.
Researchers have identified a new method that may help identify neural processes associated with optimal response to stimuli. They report the method, which utilizes EEG data, could eventually have practical applications in sports, education and Parkinson's research.
