Combining infrared laser stimulation with ultra-high-field MRI, researchers revolutionize brain mapping.
Young people are more susceptible to pleading guilty to a crime, even though they are innocent. Researchers say the differences in children's brains which affect their sensitivity to reward and punishment, and differences in information processing could be factors as to why they are more likely to plead guilty.
Findings suggest prediction may be a general feature of animal nervous systems in supporting quick behavioral changes.
Fetal exposure to phthalates alters cognitive processing in young children, a new study reports. Children whose mothers were exposed to higher levels of phthalates during pregnancy exhibited slower information processing skills. Male children were most likely to experience difficulties.
Summary: Social affective behaviors are linked to changes in insular cortex excitability caused by oxytocin, researchers report. Source: Boston College....
A new study sheds light on the internal workings of brain regions involved in recognizing and remembering objects.
A new system within the brain uses for information processing and memory storage has been discovered. The findings provide novel insight into how the brain functions.
