Using electrocorticogram technology to capture brain waves, researchers found the meaning of what people imagine can be determined from brain wave patterns, even if the image differs from what a person is looking at.
Viewing a subliminal image of their own faces, participants showed an increase in activity in the dopamine reward pathway in the brain. Findings shed new light on the underlying neural processes of self facial recognition.
Salt crystals can precipitate at low concentrations due to local density fluctuations. Their repeated precipitation dissolution behavior promotes amyloid-beta peptide aggregation.
Three days of training with brain-computer interface technology reduced phantom limb pain. Patients reported a 30% reduction in pain after one session, and the effect lasted up to five days after training was complete.
Study uncovers how misinformation and fake news can spread via social media platforms like Twitter. Those with high numbers of mutual followers are more likely to spread "dreadful" misinformation. Findings could offer solutions to prevent fake news dissemination.
Researchers have developed a neurofeedback system which allows Parkinson's patients to voluntarily control beta wave activity in the subthalamic nucleus.
Researchers have discovered a serotonin type 3 receptor activator that produces an antidepressant effect in mice and functions independently of SSRIs.
Research combines antibody precision with toxic oxygen burst to inactivate neural protein and temporarily abolish fear memory in mice.
