A new study published in Radiology reports people with Parkinson's disease show significant abnormalities within the visual system. Neuroimaging helped researchers identify alterations of optic radiation, optic chiasm volume reduction and a decrease in white matter concentration in Parkinson's patients.
When people close their eyes, they can form mental images of things that exist only in their minds. Neuroscientists studying...
A new study from Harvard researchers reveals that in primates, the blueprint for adult visual organization is in place a few days after birth and 'fills in' with experience. Researchers believe that, as the organization is present so early on in life, it is likely present before birth as a genetically programmed mechanism, and later modified due to experience.
Researchers report distinctive alterations in brain activity in college students who binge drink. The findings suggest binge drinking can impact brain development and the altered activity may indicate early signs of brain damage.
A new neuroimaging study reveals patterns of asymmetry in the human brain may be unique to our species and could help explain how we developed language skills.
A new study reports mathematical processes in the brain are influenced by language. Studying bilingual people, researchers discovered cognitive 'extra effort' is required for solving math problems when presented in the second language.
