A new theory suggests electromagnetic energy in the brain enables neurons and brain regions to create consciousness and our ability to critically think.
Fear and anxiety share overlapping neural circuits. The findings contradict the popular belief that anxiety and fear are distinct emotions with different triggers and segregated brain circuits.
Neuroimaging reveals the higher density of cells in the nucleus accumbens is associated with a larger waist circumference in children.
Impaired blood flow to specific areas of the brain coincides with Tau buildup in Alzheimer’s patients. As cognition declines, the relationship between vascular dysfunction and Tau accumulation strengthens.
When we talk to someone from a different socioeconomic background our brain reacts differently than when we address someone with a similar status to our own. Researchers found higher activity in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, an area of the brain …
fMRI study reveals dogs do not have a specific face area similar to that of primates. Dogs’ brain activity showed little response to faces but increased in response to seeing another dog over a human.
Women who experience unexplained repeated pregnancy loss (uRPL) process olfactory signals related to male body odor differently to other women. Those who experience uRPL are better able to identify the smell of their spouse.
Neuroimaging study ties the degradation of circuitry in one area of the brain to reduced efficiency of executive function in older adults.
Parkinson’s disease can be divided into two variants that start in different places in the body. For some, the neurodegenerative disease starts in the intestines and spreads to the brain. In others, the disease begins in the brain and spreads to the in…
Study provides contrary evidence to existing theory, finding anxiety and fear reflect overlapping neural circuits.
