When people make eye contact with another person, their attention is immediately solicited and this causes a distortion in temporal perception. However, the shift in time perception does not change when people glance at non-social items or objects.
The brain does not reliably perceive the frequency of tactile vibrations when the amplitude is varied. Instead, the brain creates an illusion that highlights how far our perceptions of our environment can deviate from physical reality.
Researchers report bioelectrical potential is a driving force for stem cells to generate different neuron types during embryogenesis.
Using fMRI neuroimaging to evaluate the emotional state of people playing video games, researchers found different emotional components recruit several neural networks in parallel distribution throughout the brain. The transient synchronization between the different emotional components translates to different emotional states.
Researchers discover how the brain adapts in a study of children born without a corpus callosum.
