Researchers reveal how both error and reward signals are organized within the cerebral cortex.
Researchers report bile acids play a key role in providing positive metabolic effects after weight loss surgery. The study also suggest the intestinal microbiome participates in post surgical improvements following gastric bypass. The findings could help develop new treatments for diabetes and obesity, researchers report.
Study reveals those with schizophrenia have an overall reduction of bodily sensations across all emotions, where as those without the disorder show specific patterns of increase arousal and decreased energy across the body for each emotion.
A new study reveals our longevity and sexual maturity are governed by our brains, not our bodies. Researchers discovered that animals with more neurons in the cerebral cortex live longer, regardless of their body size.
Researchers report brain stimulation to different parts of a specific brain network can change perceptions of free will.
Using mouse models, researchers found bile diversion surgery reduced cocaine induced increases in dopamine release and cocaine related behaviors. Researchers believe bariatric surgery or the consumption of a synthetic bile drug may help curb cocaine addiction in humans.
A new study reports gaining expertise with symbolic math refines the primal system of quantity representation in the brain, not the other way around.
Researchers report common symptoms of bipolar depression and schizophrenia, such as depression, psychosis and mania, have shared and distinguished genetic risk factors. The findings could help with the development of more effective therapies for these neuropsychological disorders.
Vanderbilt researchers have been awarded a new grant to develop a novel brain machine interface that utilizes both an ultrasound helmet and EEG.
According to researchers, Alzheimer's disease may be more prevalent in women, not simply because they live longer on average, but due to the APOE E4 gene. Researchers found the APOE association was greater for women in the Tau pathway than in men. However, there was no difference between APOE expression in the amyloid pathway in women compared to men.
