Researchers have succeeded in making superficial white matter visible in a living human brain.
Researchers have deciphered two axes along which the human brain is organized. The axes are mainly determined by genetic factors.
During pregnancy, the maternal environment has a dominant influence on the length of the neurogenic period and the number of upper-layer neurons produced. The study reveals a link between the maternal environment and embryonic cortical neurogenesis in-…
The risk of men and women being diagnosed with cognitive decline and dementia has increased in the U.S over the past 20 years.
Using transcranial alternating current stimulation, researchers were able to influence the activity of specific brain areas and manipulate the abilities processed by them. Findings suggest tACS could be used to improve, direct, and attenuate the flow o…
Working memory for language processing can be provided by the down-regulation of neural excitability in response to external input.
Distinct personality traits emerge and manifest via both behavior and neural activity.
Depending on the network state, certain neurons in the primary somatosensory cortex can be more or less excitable, which shapes stimulus processing in the brain.
Genomic research finds those who inherited a special ion channel from Neanderthals experience more pain.
Findings suggest increased inflammation causes the aging process to accelerate, and there is a fine balance between maintaining immune system function and longevity.
