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 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.
Researchers report the posterior parietal cortex may be implicated in the movement of our hands.
Researchers discover a population of neurons in the PPC of rats which process information in a way that supports multiple behaviors at once.
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.
The posterior parietal cortex, an area of the brain implicated in spatial awareness, plays a critical role in visual decision making.
A new neuroimaging study finds the brain's structure is related to how intensely people perceive pain.
