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.
Researchers have identified a neural system involved in making decisions based on preference.
Using neuroimaging technology, researchers investigate whether there is a neurological basis to what we perceive to be beautiful.
Studies of lucid dreamers visualise which centers of the brain become active when we become aware of ourselves. Studies demonstrate that a specific cortical network consisting of the right dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, the frontopolar regions and the precuneus is activated when this lucid consciousness is attained.
