Too much uncontrolled brain activity in specific areas could lead to cognitive impairments, a new study reveals.
Researchers identify a new mechanism that contributes to learning an association between a warning noise and a fearful event.
A large scale SPECT imaging study reveals women's brains are significantly more active in more regions than males, including the prefronal cortex and limbic areas. Visual and areas associated with coordination were more active in males, researchers noted.
Researchers report distinctive alterations in brain activity in college students who binge drink. The findings suggest binge drinking can impact brain development and the altered activity may indicate early signs of brain damage.
USC researchers reveal schizophrenia may be due to a disruption in the brain's entire communication system, not just the temporal and prefrontal lobes.
University of Birmingham researchers report a delayed response to processing written words could signify an increased risk of developing Alzheimer's disease in patients with MCI.
Vanderbilt researchers report elderly people whose hearts pump less blood have reduced blood flow in the temporal lobe. Previous studies report the temporal lobe is a critical brain area for the development of Alzheimer's disease.
A new neuroimaging study reveals patterns of asymmetry in the human brain may be unique to our species and could help explain how we developed language skills.
A new, whole brain map of neural connectivity reveals low frequency activity rhythms drive communication between key areas involved in memory processing.
