Researchers link physical fitness in children to increased gray matter volume in areas of the brain implicated in language processing and reading skills.
Neural activity patterns for limb movements remain stable over time. Researchers were able to record, decode, and reconstruct activity patterns from common movement skills. The findings could have immediate implications for the development of neuroprosthetics that can bypass brain injuries by inferring intended motor actions from a person's brain.
EEG recordings help predict how people apply context and rules to learning new tasks.
University of Rochester researchers report low levels of electrical stimulation delivered to areas of the brain responsible for movement can instruct an appropriate response, replacing signals for sensory processing.
Neuroimaging pinpoints areas of the brain that regulate efforts to deal with fatigue. The study reveals the neural mechanisms that contribute to feelings of fatigue.
