Contrary to a popular theory, researchers have discovered the brain remains connected during non-REM sleep. The study reports not all forms of communication within the cerebral cortex are disrupted during this sleep phase.
Breathing is not just for oxygen; it’s now linked to brain function.
UCLA neuroscientists are the first to show that rhythmic waves in the brain called theta oscillations happen more often when someone is navigating an unfamiliar environment, and that the more quickly a person moves, the more theta oscillations take place — presumably to process incoming information faster.
Researchers have identified a brain network that allows the brain to record memories of new places.
A new study reveals deep brain stimulation not only improves motor function, but can also increase survival rates for those with Parkinson’s disease.
A build up of urea in the brain to toxic levels may cause brain damage, eventually leading to dementia, a new study reports.
A new method to measure brain connectivity has found that people with depression have changes in the brain systems involved in memory and reward.
Researchers have developed a single cell sequencing method that can map the cellular origin of a wide variety of neurological and psychiatric disorders.
Finally this week, a new study reveals why some people find it more difficult than others to meet switching demands and change focus as efficiently.
