EEG and skin conductance studies reveal verbal insults elicit strong P2 effects in brain waves, increasing sensitivity in the brain to negative words. Verbal insults trigger a cascade of consecutive and overlapping processing effects, and different parts of the cascade may be differently affected by repetition, resulting in a consistently strong emotional response over time.
A new study reveals how dangerous inflammations in the brain are caused during the aging process. Researchers say failure with the CB1 to control activity of immune cells may result in chronic neuroinflammation. They say it may be possible to break this vicious cycle in the future with drugs that contain THC, which is a powerful CB1 receptor activator.
Researchers report children with poor vision experience an improvement in their peripheral vision within hours of being exposed to child friendly action video games.
Researchers report a new video game aimed at middle school children can help boost empathy and prosocial behavior. The study reports children exposed to the game showed greater connectivity between brain networks linked to emotional regulation and perspective taking.
A new study reports that a video game, currently in development as a medical device, has shown to boost attention in some children with sensory processing dysfunction.
RAGE-Control, a video game system that utilizes biofeedback to regulate heart rate, reduces stress, oppositional behavior, and aggression by training children to stay calm during stressful and frustrating situations.
If you're playing video games to help kill time during social distancing, you might be improving your visual attention abilities. Researchers found experienced gamers have faster information processing abilities and can allocate more cognitive power to individual visual stimuli. Playing video games can cause long-term changes in the brain and lead to improvements in temporal visual selective attention.
Researchers have successfully reconstructed a short movie of randomly moving discs produced by rat retinal neurons, with the help of machine learning technology.
Using bioluminescent proteins from a jellyfish, scientists lit up the inside of a neuron, capturing spectacular video footage that shows the movement of proteins throughout the cell. The video offers a rare peek at how proteins, the brain's building blocks, are directed through neurons to renew its structure.
