Researchers have identified novel neural pathways that help regulate sleep and wakefulness.
Spontaneous eye-blink rates could be the missing link in explaining the relationship between aerobic fitness and cognitive function.
Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) can be used to modulate brain rhythms and cognitive behaviors related to "giving up" during problem-solving tasks.
Exercise may be a new prescription to help those with sleep problems. Researchers found rigorous exercise causes measurable changes in sleep quality, even if a person doesn't notice the difference.
