A new study links a propensity to binge-watch TV shows with personality traits. Researchers found those who lack impulse control and emotional clarity are most likely to binge-watch a television series.
Combining deep-brain stimulation with intracranial EEG, researchers achieved an individualized understanding of specific brain networks that contributed to an individual's depression symptoms and identified stimulation patterns best suited to each patient for symptom relief.
Inadequate sleep can harm brain organization in early adolescence, researchers report. The disorganization can have an impact on cognitive processes, including attention, memory, emotional regulation, and controlling behaviors.

Researchers describe how specific facial features distinguish a child's face from an adult's face. The findings may help new technologies to quickly determine if children are depicted in indecent images.
Specialized brain cells associated with the neural process of learning in songbirds bear a striking resemblance to neurons associated with the development of fine motor control in humans.
The "background noise" in the brain disrupts long-memory signals by neurons. This noise interrupts the consistent rhythm of long-memory alpha wave signals in people experiencing identity confusion.
