This research shows that the loss of connections in the corpus collosum could be partly responsible for slower response times seen in older animals and humans due to too much crosstalk and confusion between the brain hemispheres.
Deleting the enzyme PTEN allowed neurology researchers to regenerate corticospinal tract neurons after spinal cord injuries in rodents.
Optimistic brains and pessimistic brains were compared in a brain-imaging study of the posterior parietal cortex, where it is believed sensory stimuli are transformed into movement plans.
Neuroscience research into the neuroscience of music shows that musicians' brains may be primed to distinguish meaningful sensory information from noise.
Gut bacteria, previously considered benign, has the ability to alter the immune system of mice enough to affect the rate of Multiple Sclerosis occurance.
Large brains have been correlated with longevity in some animals. Despite many problems created by large brains such as energy consumption and birthing difficulties, species with large brains have been shown to live longer than those with smaller brains.
UCL neuroscientists have found evidence that the posterior parietal cortex is the general brain area mostly involved in producing the brain's map of the body in space.
Neurobiology research from UCLA indicates the possibility of GABA interfering with working memory in patients with neurofibromatosis type 1, or NF1.
