Scientists used a new combination of neural imaging methods to discover how the human brain adapts to injury. The research shows that when one brain area loses functionality, a back-up team of secondary brain areas immediately activates, replacing not only the unavailable area but also its confederates.
Researchers find some of the psychotic symptoms experienced by those with schizophrenia may be caused by a disconnection between the insular and lateral frontal cortex.
Researchers discover a mechanism in the brain which controls tics in children with Tourette Syndrome.
Researchers find those with chronic insomnia show more activity and plasticity in the motor cortex than those who are able to sleep normally.
Researchers have developed a method to measure the response of an individual neuron to transcranial magnetic stimulation.
GABA plays a vital role in controlling the involuntary tics associated with Tourette Syndrome.
Researchers report they have successfully replicated a previous brain-to-brain communication experiment.
