In both human and animal subject, bursts of beta wave activity in the brain help to filter distraction in order to process different sensations, a new study reports.
DARPA's HAPTIX program seeks to provide amputees with natural touch sensations.
Exposing crocodiles to a variety of auditory and visual stimuli while in an MRI, researchers discover their brain processing patterns resemble that of other mammals and birds. The researchers speculate the fundamental mechanisms of sensory processing were formed at an early evolutionary stage.
Researchers have successfully mapped brain networks that are responsible for perception and movements linked to touch. The findings may provide new insights into the connection between movement and touch.
Study tracks how and where zebrafish brains transform the movement of the environment into a decision that causes the fish to swim in a specific direction.
Researchers develop a method to decrypt the brain while it sleeps to reveal hidden memories.
Study reveals how lipids interact with grape tannins, masking the unfavorable taste of certain wine compounds and altering taste perception.
A new study reports sensory stimulation during the first two weeks of life is critical for establishing brain networks that help map sensation.
Rats fed either a diet of soft or hard foods showed differences in jaw activity and muscle control when a chewing-related region of the brain was stimulated. Findings reveal the anterior cortical masticatory area strongly influences the regulation of chewing and is influenced by sensory input during development.
Researchers report human echolocation works in tandem with other senses to help deliver vital information for those with visual impairments.
