The posterior parietal cortex, an area of the brain implicated in spatial awareness, plays a critical role in visual decision making.
A new study links risk aversion to changes in gray matter volume in the right posterior parietal cortex.
A new neuroimaging study finds the brain's structure is related to how intensely people perceive pain.
Coupling a non invasive brain computer interface with a virtual walking avatar may help those with gait disorders to regain control of their movements, a new study reports.
Researchers discover a population of neurons in the PPC of rats which process information in a way that supports multiple behaviors at once.
Researchers report neurons in the PPC encode entire hand shapes. The findings are helping with the development of neuroprosthetic devices.
Researchers report the posterior parietal cortex may be implicated in the movement of our hands.
A new microscopy technique integrates existing and novel approaches to build a clearer picture of the workings of neurons in the brain. The technique captures cellular activity across large tissue volumes in greater detail than previous techniques have allowed for.
The lateral intraparietal area (LIP), a region of the brain known to play a vital role in spatial and visual processing also has a parallel function, categorizing visual information, a new study suggests.
