Researchers have developed a new neuroimaging method to track neurodegeneration in Alzheimer's disease. The method helped uncover a new pathway for how degeneration spreads from one brain region to another.
A neuroimaging study reveals response learners show a decrease in hippocampal gray matter after playing action based video games for 90 hours.
Researchers from McGill University shed light on how motor signals help sharpen our ability to decipher complex sound flows.
Researchers have discovered that a severe form of epileptic encephalopathy is caused by recessive loss-of-function mutations in the gene DENND5A.
