Study reviews differences in cognitive processes between atheists and those who believe in a deity.
Combining brain scan images with machine learning, researchers identified a number of brain changes following TBI that share similarities with Alzheimer's disease. The findings add to the growing body of evidence that the two conditions follow the same trajectories.
Researchers have identified a new and more accurate way to determine which portions of the brain suffer from epilepsy. The information could provide patients and doctors with better information as to whether temporal lobe surgery will provide the best treatment outcome.
Researchers may have solved one of the great mysteries of neuroscience; namely, why neurons in the temporal lobe are the first to die in Alzheimer's disease, and why dopaminergic neurons are damaged first in Parkinson's.
Researchers report on the combined structural, functional and anatomical changes that occur in those born blind that are not present in the brains of people born with sight.
A new study reports on a link between coprophagia and certain neurodegenerative diseases and dementias.
