A new study provides insight into the neural circuit computations that underlie risk-reward decision making.
Researchers have discovered key parts of the human brain network give us the power to control and shift our attention. This core cognitive ability may be unique to humans.
Researchers report within the first weeks of life, deaf cats have reduced connections between the anterior ectosylvian sulcus and the superior colliculus. However, deaf cats have increased connections from other auditory areas to the superior colliculus.
Researchers have developed a new algorithm that integrates Alzheimer's indicators from MRI measurements to predict patients with the neurodegenerative disease.
Learning a new skill may involve the generation of new neural activity patterns.
Study reports significant reduction in gray matter volume in brain regions associated with social cognition for up to two years following birth.
A new tool is allowing researchers to interactively explore the hierarchical processes that happen in the brain when it is resting or performing tasks.
According to researchers, the primate brain anticipates for all new situations by creating a special kind of neural network that is pre-adapted to face any eventuality.
According to a new study, distant areas of the brain are required to help store a single memory.
Researchers have identified two subpopulations of neurons in the BNST that connect to separate populations of neurons in the lateral hypothalamus which appear to drive two opposing emotional states; avoidance and reward seeking
