Adolescent binge drinking has vast functional implications on the developing brain, researchers report. Binge drinking decreases function in areas responsible for sensory, motor, memory, and cognitive processes.
Researchers have identified a neural network that connects the legs to the visual system in order to shape walking.
A new study reveals blind people remember speech and language better than sighted people. Researchers say blind people use language as a mental tool to remember information.
The perceptual accuracy of visual information and its subjective interpretation use separate neural mechanisms that can be manipulated independently of each other.
