According to a new mathematical model of seizures, only the conductivity of the AMPA receptors in neurons in the temporal lobe significantly change, leading to stronger excitation and synaptic signals.
Researchers used electrodes implanted into the temporal lobes of patients to decode brain signals at nearly the speed of perception.
Study reviews differences in cognitive processes between atheists and those who believe in a deity.
A new study reports researchers have identified a link between academic achievement, parental income and cortical thickness in children.
A new study reports babies' brains are sensitive to different emotional tones they hear in voices. Researchers suggest maternal interactions may help to shape the same brain region adults use for emotional processing.
Researchers report, following a lobectomy, the left hemisphere of the brain compensated for visual tasks in a young boy. The findings, researchers say, provide a detailed characterization of plasticity in the developing brain.
A new SPECT imaging study reveals those with treatment resistant depression have lower cerebral blood flow within the frontal, parietal and temporal lobes.
According to a new study, women who abuse stimulant drugs have significantly less gray matter volume in brain areas vital for decision making and emotion.
Researchers published a study outlining how a new type of non-invasive brain scan taken immediately after a seizure gives additional insight into possible causes and treatments for epilepsy patients.
