A new study sheds additional light on how the brain consolidates memory during sleep. Researchers report rapid fluctuations in gamma band activity in the hippocampus during nREM sleep helps facilitate memory reactivation.
A new study reports neurons in the somatosensory cortex respond differently to various features of a surface, creating a high dimensional representation of texture in the brain. The findings could help develop neuroprosthetics capable of identifying textures in greater detail.
Researchers have developed a new theory that outlines how the brain separates relevant from irrelevant information.
A new study provides insight into how the brain processes visual information to help control behavior.
A new EEG study reveals how the brain utilizes more cognitive resources to hold memory and process previous information.
Researchers have identified a novel neural network in fruit flies that converts external stimuli of varying intensity into decisions about whether to act.
Testing multiple computational models of the nervous system, researchers discover that just because a model can make accurate predictions about data, this doesn't always translate into the underlying logic of the biological system it represents.
A new study reveals multiple functions of visual attention.
Researchers report the brain's reward network could play an influential role in evaluating the opportunity to gain new information, just as it does to evaluate rewards such as food or financial gain.
