Researchers have identified three areas of the posterior cerebral cortex that bridge the brain's perception and memory systems.
Researchers have uncovered the molecular structure of three major complexes of glutamate receptors in the hippocampus. The findings shed new light on the mechanisms behind memory and learning in the brain.
Eating a Mediterranean-style diet can help protect the brain from tau protein build-up and brain shrinkage associated with Alzheimer's disease.
A new study sheds light on how highly sensitive people process information. After experiencing something emotionally evocative, brain activity displayed a depth of processing while at rest. Depth of processing is a key feature of high emotional sensitivity.
A neuroimaging study of people with Down syndrome reveals subtle differences in the structure and function of the hippocampus.
Researchers propose a new theory of what happens in the brain when we experience familiar seeming visual stimuli. The theory, dubbed sensory referenced suppression, suggests the brain understands different levels of activation expected for sensory input and corrects for it, leaving behind the signal for familiarity.
Sharing our personal experiences on social media may negatively impact how we feel about our memories, especially if the post doesn't get many likes, a new study reports.
Spending time performing household chores may help to improve brain health, especially for older adults. Researchers found older adults who spent more time engaging in housework had greater brain volume, specifically in the frontal lobe and hippocampus, brain areas associated with memory and cognition.
