Performance of newly acquired motor skills can be improved by reactivating memories during sleep, a new study finds.
Study reveals how the brain analyzes different types of speech which may be linked to how we comprehend sentences and calculate mathematical equations.
Brain connectivity at birth may impact emotional processing and social development later in childhood, especially in children born preterm. Researchers found children born preterm with a weaker uncinate fasciculus, the white-matter tract that connects brain regions associated with emotional processing, were more likely to interpret situations in a negative light.
EEG study reveals when we imagine a song, similar brain activity occurs as when we experience moments of silence in music.
Alterations in long-term social behavior and gene expression were observed in the offspring of mice exposed to pain-killing opioids during pregnancy.
Sleep twitches help enrich the encoding of sensory information in newborn rats, laying the groundwork for later motor function.
A study of people learning to read braille reveals how white matter reorganizes itself across different brain regions and timeframes to meet the brain's needs.
Connections between oxytocin neurons in the hypothalamus and dopamine neurons in the reward system drive parenting behaviors in both male and female voles.
Specific hippocampal neurons may be involved in time-related memory encoding. Findings reveal the human brain contains time-tracking neurons.
Temporal sound processing can be maintained in mouse models of congenital hearing loss with exposure to broadband sounds embedded with pauses, a new study reports.
