The posterior parietal cortex, an area of the brain implicated in spatial awareness, plays a critical role in visual decision making.
Those who are more mindful are less caught up in the experience of pain, and report feeling less pain than those who are less mindful, a new study reports. Researchers say higher disposition mindfulness during painful heat is associated with greater deactivation of the posterior cingulate cortex.
Researchers report the posterior parietal cortex may be implicated in the movement of our hands.
A new study sheds light on the internal workings of brain regions involved in recognizing and remembering objects.
Researchers report neurons in the PPC encode entire hand shapes. The findings are helping with the development of neuroprosthetic devices.
Researchers have identified a new neural pathway by which several brain areas communicate within the striatum.
