A new study reveals the majority of V1 neurons project to higher visual areas in a non-random manner.
Researchers reveal that, while the anatomical structures of bird, reptile and mammalian brains differ, all contain certain types of cells linked to cognitive ability.
Contrary to a popular theory, researchers discover the brain remains connected during non-REM sleep. The study reports not all forms of communication within the cerebral cortex are disrupted during this sleep phase.
Yale researchers report the human brain contains some distinct patterns that mark our evolution and could contribute to our cognitive abilities.
A Kent State University study reveals the brains of older chimpanzees show similar pathology to Alzheimer's disease in humans.
A new study reveals an early relative of mammals possessed an expanded brain with a neocortex like structure. The researchers reported the neocortex like structure developed in a late Permian therapsid 25 million years prior to the emergence of the first mammals.
Blue Brain Project shows our brains operate on many different dimensions, not just the three we are accustomed to.
