Study reveals lonely people showed reduced activity in the anterior insular cortex, an area of the brain associated with trust formation. The anterior insular cortex was less prominently connected to other brain regions in those who expressed feelings of loneliness.
Novel artificial intelligence software can provide a precise assessment of the progression of geographic atrophy. The technology can also determine the integrity of photoreceptors and detect progressive degenerative changes beyond the main lessons associated with GA.
Researchers discover an important function of gamma-secretase in cells that is critical for lipid homeostasis in the brain.
A new study implicated interneurons and pyramidal cells in the ability of a seizure to spread through the brain.
A new study challenges the belief that epileptic seizures can be predicted by brain wave patterns. Researchers report they have found no evidence that specific brain wave patterns can be a predictive indicator of seizure onset.
Researchers report inhibited activity of the amygdala makes people more susceptible to deception when it comes to illusory perception. The study suggests the amygdala might help to protect us against distortions in self-perception.
