A new hypothesis suggests when people are awake during the biological circadian night there are neurophysiological changes in the brain that alters the way in which we interact with the world, especially when it comes to impulse control, information processing, and reward processing.
By briefly inhibiting other cells, neurogliaform cells in the CA1 region of the hippocampus ensure that current perception and memories of past experiences can be processed both separately and in combination with each other.
Ripples occur in the human cortex, both while we are awake and asleep.
Study reveals the posterior inferior parietal lobe plays a critical role in integrating information from different sources during decision-making tasks.
A new mathematical model has the potential to accurately distinguish a misunderstanding from false information and lies.
Increasing synchronization of neurons in the upstream brain region that transmits information leads to a significant improvement in the transmission of information and information processing in the downstream region.
Study reveals the different ways the brain parses information through interactions of waves of neural activity.
When it comes to mental processing, researchers say there are fundamental similarities between autistic and people not on the autism spectrum.
Pooled data reveals shift workers perform worse on tasks associated with attention, working memory, and information processing than non-shift workers.
