Neuroimaging allowed researchers to make some key discoveries about the developing brain. The study revealed male children had overall greater brain volume, but the size of specific brain structures did not differ between sexes, nor did cognitive ability. Additionally, regardless of the sex or size of the child, the ratio between the size of the brain and the volume of cerebrospinal fluid was universal.
The structure of SuperAgers' brains and the connectivity of their neural networks more closely resembles the brains of younger adults, a neuroimaging study reveals.
Neurochemistry may dictate our choices for certain kinds of food, even when we believe we are making a conscious choice in what to eat.
Physical exercise was associated with more efficiently organized, robust, and flexible networks in the preteen brain.
Neuroimaging study reveals abnormalities in memory replay in those with schizophrenia.
Cognitive flexibility, an ability to switch between different concepts, or adapt behavior to achieve goals in a novel or changing environment, is a key player in both learning and creativity.
Flavored e-cigarette tobacco engages the taste system, while non-flavored vaped nicotine triggers the brain's reward system in a similar way observed when people smoke traditional cigarettes.
Self-reported cognitive decline was associated with altered functional connectivity in the hippocampus and dorsal anterior insular, a new study reports.
Activity in the dorsal mid insular could drive different interpretations in bodily sensations in those with mental health disorders like depression, anorexia, and panic disorders.
