According to researchers, retrieving memories of past events may not take as long as we previously thought. It may also be possible to interfere with the process.
Researchers report on how specific neurons can process sensory information about temperature and facilitate a change in behavior to adapt to the climate.
Older adults with a higher ability to process sensations, including vision, olfaction, hearing, and touch, had half the risk of being diagnosed with cognitive decline than their peers who were less capable at sensory processing tasks.
Researchers report popular benzodiazepine sleep medications, such as Ambien and Halcion, caused test subjects to sleep through fire alarm drills. However, a newly developed class of sleeping medications perverse the ability to wake in response to threat.
Sensory information travels to two places at once; both the brain's mid-layer and the deeper layers, according to new research.
An asymmetric coupling between the peripheral visual and olfactory sensory systems allows for enhanced steering response to discrete objects in mosquitos.
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.
Multisensory integration is an important skill for the developing brain because it helps shape how effectively we make sense of our surroundings, a new study reports.
Sensory patterns of children on the autism spectrum, and those who had ASD traits but were not diagnosed, grew stronger over time.
