A new computational model predicts how information deep inside the brain could flow from one network to another, and how neural network clusters can self optimize over time.
Researchers have developed a new model of mitochondrial epilepsy which captures specific features observed in patients. The new model may help provide better therapies and treatments for the condition.
While empathy may not have a direct effect on prejudice, researchers say it does have an indirect influence via personality and attitude. The study reveals a person with low empathy is more likely to score high on authoritarianism and is indirectly more susceptible to show prejudice.

The way in which an object is named guides an infant's encoding and memory of that object, a new study reveals.
The human brain avoids taking unnecessary effort while reading by regulating the resources used in order to identify the most essential information.
Researchers at UAB have developed an assessment test, that can be completed within 20 minutes, to assess the cognitive capabilities of those with Schizophrenia.
Using transgenic mice, researchers find a lack of autophagy in neurons prevents the secretion of amyloid beta and the formation of β-amyloid plaques in the brain.
Researchers report the hypothalamus is, on average, five percent larger in those with mood disorders like major depressive disorder and bipolar disorder, than it is in those without depression.
