High resolution imaging reveals the human cerebellum is 80% of the area of the cortex. The findings indicate this area of the brain likely grew larger as human behavior and cognition evolved.
Those with MS allocate neural resources less effectively when faced with increased cognitive task demands, and this likely results in the increased mental fatigue those with the neurodegenerative disorder experience.
Cortical thickness and regional brain connectivity pay an equally important role in linking brain and behavior.
Researchers have discovered a brain-based marker for new thoughts, reporting people experience more than 6,000 thoughts per day. The study reports a new method that can detect indirectly when one thought ends and another begins.
Using artificial intelligence and neuroimaging, researchers have identified a link between mental imagery and vision. The brain uses similar visual areas for mental imagery and vision but uses low-level visual areas less precisely for mental imagery th…
Even without a concussion, repetitive impacts experienced by those who play contact sports have clear effects on the brain. Rugby players who reported no concussions had alterations in the microstructure of the brain, specifically in the brain stem. Al…
Study offers clues to how neurons can rewire and restore pathways following injury or illness.
Loneliness alters how the brain represents relationships, a new study reports.
Using scenes from movies, researchers discover how different brain areas can be used flexibly and as needed. The study sheds light on how the brain transitions between moral thinking and empathy.
A new study casts doubt on common theories about speech control. Researchers discovered it’s not just the right hemisphere that analyzes how we speak, the left hemisphere also plays a significant role.
