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.
A new neuroimaging study finds the brain's structure is related to how intensely people perceive pain.
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.
A new study sheds light on the internal workings of brain regions involved in recognizing and remembering objects.
A new study links risk aversion to changes in gray matter volume in the right posterior parietal cortex.
Researchers report the posterior parietal cortex may be implicated in the movement of our hands.
A new study published in Nature sheds light on how populations of neurons work together during working memory and decision making tasks. Researchers report individual neurons are briefly active, but populations of neurons working together carry information for longer periods of time by being active at different times.
