The stronger the connection between the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and temporal-parietal junction, the less likely people are to punish others for selfish deeds.
When reading, people are not only able to predict the next word, but also the words' grammatical properties. This allows us to read faster. The findings could help with the development of new neural networks focused on natural language processing.
A new mathematical approach is able to predict the severity of autism traits from brain activity data.
The brain suppresses the perception of the heartbeat, affecting our perception of other sensory stimuli. Researchers propose the brain's sensitivity to sensory stimuli depends on the cardiac cycle and the brain's perception of it.
NMDA receptor hypofunction is involved in the reduction of sleep spindles and delta oscillations, which appear in the brain during deep natural sleep. Findings confirm the role NMDA receptors play in sleep disorders that accompany psychotic states.
The left and right hemispheres of the brain are characterized by different word processing strategies.
