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.
Sensory information travels to two places at once; both the brain's mid-layer and the deeper layers, according to new research.
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.
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.
