A new study in Neuron reports a simple, new neuroimaging technique has revealed a correlation between how well a person's brain regions are connected and intelligence.
A new mathematical model is able to predict the optimal exercise regime to help build muscles.
New findings raise the question of whether Neanderthals returned to the same spots in the famous Shanidar Cave to inter their dead. If so, it would suggest a cultural complexity of a higher order.
People who are historically more reliant on the coal industry tend to have more negative personality traits, University of Cambridge researchers report. The researchers believe this could be a lasting effect of the Industrial Revolution.
Researchers created model embryos from mouse stem cells that form a beating heart, a brain, and the foundation for other organs. The new model provides a novel way for future researchers to create and research the earliest stages of development.
Researchers are developing new artificial intelligence technology that can "quarantine" hate speech in a manner akin to malware filters. The AI, which is currently 80% accurate at identifying hate speech, will offer a new way to control exposure to negative content without resorting to censorship.
Researchers report spontaneous errors in DNA that arise as our cells divide and reproduce may be at the root of Alzheimer's disease. The findings suggest the cause of certain neurodegenerative diseases could be traced back to embryonic development.
Severe COVID-19 infection results in cognitive impairment similar to that sustained by natural aging between the ages of 50 to 70, and is equivalent to losing 10 IQ points.
The optimal amount of sleep for middle-aged and older adults is seven hours per night. Sleeping too little, or too much, was associated with poor cognitive performance and mental health, researchers say.
In most community settings, compared with doing nothing, mindfulness reduced stress, anxiety, depression, and increased wellbeing. However, in some cases, mindfulness may be no better than other practices to reduce anxiety and depression.
Study identifies 275 ways to help reduce the transmission of COVID-19 when countries eventually attempt to reduce social distancing pract
