Immersive virtual reality enhances theta and eta waves in the hippocampus, improving memory, learning and neuroplasticity.
Optical illusions are helping researchers better understand attention and visual perception. Findings suggest attention operates periodically on the perceptual binding of visual information.
EEG technology allows researchers to predict risk taking behaviors in people. Researchers say higher frontal midline theta power is linked to higher cognitive control, allowing people to weigh up options more intensively during the decision making process.
Researchers report drinking alcohol can impair brain waves associated with decision making, but not necessarily motor control.
A new study reveals how the brain manages to perform learned categorization while under stress.
Different processes occur in the brains of jazz and classical pianists while playing the same piece of music, researchers report.
A new study reports the hippocampus puts events into sequence by changing the neural code in the rat brain.
Researchers have identified how two distinct areas of the developing brain communicate and report REM sleep is key to this communication.
