A new study adds to the mounting evidence that the auditory cortex does more than just process sound.
A new study could help explain why stress often leads people to binge eat or relapse into addiction.
Researchers report preteens who like to experiment and engage in new experiences have stronger neural connections and brain processes than those who don't.
New research provides evidence of how changes in the activity of individual neurons can encode learning and memory.
Researchers identify neural circuitry responsible for fear and reward learning in mice.
A new study reports punishment may be more likely to influence behavior outcomes than reward.
Dopamine neurons are activated less than in adults brains when teens are faced with the prospect of a reward, a new study reports.
According to a new study, habit formation is driven by neurons in the striatum which represent both the cost and reward of the behavior.
