Entropy during consciousness is higher than during unconscious states.
According to a new Journal of Alzheimer's Disease study, common genetic variants in amyloid precursor protein are associated with fluid intelligence in children.
Researchers were able to predict the orientation preference of individual neurons by adding up the responses of their dendritic spines, a new study reports.
Study provides new insight into how brain waves control the flow of information through the cortex.
A visual test may be a new tool in the diagnosis of autism. Individuals on the autism spectrum are slower to dampen neural activity in response to visual stimuli in the brain. Using EEG data collected from the visual region, researchers could predict with 87% accuracy whether or not a person had ASD.
When it comes to mental processing, researchers say there are fundamental similarities between autistic and people not on the autism spectrum.
A new study reports the larger the growth of areas associated with thinking in the cortex, the slower the growth of regions associated with emotional, sensory and motor skills.
Single neurons conveying visual information about two separate objects in line of sight do so by alternating signals about one object or the other. However, when the two objects overlap, brain cells detect them as a single entity.
