A new statistical model lays groundwork for understanding how ketamine induces an anesthetic response, steps to monitor unconscious patients, and provides new information about brain activity while unconscious.
Researchers measured how brain waves travel in the prefrontal cortex during working memory tasks.
Study provides new insight into how brain waves control the flow of information through the cortex.

A newly developed artificial intelligence algorithm can accurately and reliably assess unconsciousness in patients under anesthesia based on brain activity.
New findings reveal how anesthesia-induced unconsciousness differs from normal sleep in relation to delta wave activity in the brain.
Brain mapping study reveals memory engrams are widely distributed throughout the brain, including among regions not previously realized.
Just one protein situated on the synapse can profoundly alter how some neurons communicate and implement plasticity.
A new study reveals the role the locus coeruleus plays in learning, behavior, and mental health.
Propofol, the commonly used anesthetic, alters and controls the dynamics of the brain's rhythms. The findings can help doctors better monitor patients under anesthesia with the aid of EEG.
