Studies of lucid dreamers visualise which centers of the brain become active when we become aware of ourselves. Studies demonstrate that a specific cortical network consisting of the right dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, the frontopolar regions and the precuneus is activated when this lucid consciousness is attained.
A new study finds the ability to accurately reflect on perceptual experiences and the ability to accurately reflect on memory is unconnected, suggesting we have distinct introspective skills.
A new neuroimaging study finds the brain's structure is related to how intensely people perceive pain.
Neuroimaging study isolates functional differences between autistic and non-autistic brains, researchers report.
Researchers focus on gray matter volume on three areas of the brain. Findings suggest cardiovascular risk factors such as obesity and diabetes could be early indicators for Alzheimer's disease.
Researchers have identified a novel neural network which processes incoming information based on whether it’s something we’ve experienced previously or not.
Older people who engage in regular physical activity have more intact white matter and have more variable brain activity than their less active peers, a new study reports.
Researchers find the neurobiological root of happiness in the precuneus.
Researchers explore how the ability to control dreams may be a key to helping us better understand consciousness.
