MEG neuroimaging implicates the occipital place area (OPA) in our ability to rapidly sense our surroundings. The findings may advance improving machine learning and robotics technology aimed at mimicking visual processes in the human brain.
A new study reports the CA2 region of the hippocampus controls both higher order cognition, like social memory, and instinctual behaviors, such as aggression. The findings could shed light on why abnormal social behaviors may occur in schizophrenia and other psychiatric illnesses.
When fruit flies experience an unexpected change in its surroundings, serotonin produced in the ventral nerve cord slows the insect down. The findings may shed light on the neurobiological mechanisms of human startle response.
Researchers report becoming consciously aware of a decision conforms to the same mechanism the brain goes through to complete a simple decision.
A new study upends traditional models of how the brain constructs interpretations of the outside world, revealing that the brain uses a reverse order of processing to recall visual information.
A new study sheds light on how neurons in the motor cortex communicate with muscles and drive motion. Using optogenetics, the researchers discovered the motor cortex communicates with muscles differently, depending on the type of movement an animal makes.
A lack of adaptability in hippocampal place cells could be key to memory deficits in schizophrenia, researchers report.
