Newly discovered rotating waves of brain activity that repeat during the night are responsible for forming associations between different aspects of a day's memories, a new study reports.
Researchers report EEG technology has the ability to study activity of areas deep inside the brain, such as the thalamus and nucleus accumbens. The findings will help shed new light on disorders that affect these brain regions, such as Parkinson's disease and OCD.
Researchers believe findings may shed light on how the vertebrate brain may have evolved.
Working memory isn't confined to one area of the brain. It requires synchronous activity of at least two brain areas.
Researchers have been able to restore consciousness to a patient who has been in a vegetative state for 15 years. The groundbreaking study utilized vagus nerve stimulation to help restore consciousness to the patient.
Age, sex, and gender influence the organization of the brain's opioid system. Findings shed light on why there are significant differences between the opioid system on an individual level, and why some are more prone to developing opioid-linked pathologies than others.
A new study reveals premature babies may suffer from severe abnormalities of the thalamus, especially if they are born before 28 weeks gestation.
A fatal brain stem tumor was cleared by injecting it with engineered T-cells that recognized cancer and targeted it for destruction in mouse models, researchers report.
Propofol, the commonly used anesthetic, alters and controls the dynamics of the brain's rhythms. The findings can help doctors better monitor patients under anesthesia with the aid of EEG.
