Genes alone don't determine how the cerebral cortex grows into separate functional areas. Input from the thalamus is also crucially required, a new study suggests.
Researchers demonstrate how the transmission of sensory information from one cortical area to connected areas depends on the specific task at hand and goal directed behavior.
Sensory information travels to two places at once; both the brain's mid-layer and the deeper layers, according to new research.
Researchers discover children with sensory processing disorder have quantifiable differences in brain structure. The finding shows a biological basis for the disorder which sets it apart from other neurodevelopmental disorders.
Researchers tested people's abilities to distinguish between complex mixtures of scents. Based on the results, the researchers calculated humans can detected more than 1 trillion odor mixtures.
Male fruit flies adapt the tempo and pitch of their mating song based upon the movement and behavior of their desired mate, a new study reports.
DARPA's HAPTIX program seeks to provide amputees with natural touch sensations.
Researchers suggest measuring how fast the brain responds to sounds and sights may help with earlier diagnosis of ASD.
