Researchers are investigating advances in brain-computer interface technologies and considering the implications of linking our brains up to technology.
A new study published in the online journal Radiology suggested that disconnections in the areas of the brain, which are involved in attention and visual processing might lead to visual hallucinations in patients with Parkinson’s disease.
Researchers present a new theory about dreaming, suggesting dreams may be an accidental byproduct of our waking cognitive abilities.
Scientists have long deemed the ability to recognize faces innate for people and other primates — something our brains just know how to do immediately from birth. However, the findings of a new Harvard Medical School study published Sept. 4 in the journal Nature Neuroscience cast doubt on this longstanding view.
Genetic processes that allow cells to transform so they can mend damaged nerves have been identified by scientists.
For the first time, researchers have been able to see changes in the neural structures in specific areas of the brains of people who suffered severe abuse as children.
A new study reveals molecular details of what happens when axons are damaged or completely severed.
Finally, this week, how well we are able to complete simple and complex tasks depends upon the organization of subnetworks in the brain, a new study reports.
