Fruit flies may use dopamine to learn in similar ways to humans.
Soccer players who feel anxious at the thought of kicking a penalty kick and who miss the goal show more activity in the prefrontal cortex. Overthinking the shot, researchers say, could play a role in missing a goal.
A newly developed artificial intelligence algorithm can accurately and reliably assess unconsciousness in patients under anesthesia based on brain activity.
Our concepts of people, objects, and events are composed of sensory impressions and actions associated with them, in addition to abstract symbol-like features.
Students who embarked on online learning went to bed, on average, thirty minutes later than they did while entered into in-person learning. They also slept less efficiently and napped more during the day.
When necrotic cells expose phosphatidylserine on their outer surfaces, and when phagocytes detect it, the phagocytes ingest and destroy the dying cells.
Glioblastoma can mimic the normal repair of white matter in the brain, causing the tumor to become less malignant. Additionally, a drug commonly prescribed for asthma can help suppress glioblastoma growth in mouse models.
A new study reports on an association between specific gut bacteria species and the manifestation of neurodegenerative disorders.
The cerebellum underwent evolutionary changes that may have contributed to the development of language, culture, and tool use in humans, a new study reveals.
Findings suggest developing HDAC6 inhibitors could be a novel new therapeutic avenue for the treatment of migraines.
People who were touched by conversational humanoid robots report positive emotional states and were more likely to comply with requests made by the robot.
Adolescents with a higher risk for developing psychosis have subtle differences in brain structure, including lower cortical thickness than their peers without risk factors. In those who developed psychosis, the cortical thinning was most pronounced in…
Novel gene therapy treatment prevents learning impairments and memory loss in mouse models of Alzheimer’s disease.
Study reveals people who live to be 105 or older have unique genetic signatures that are linked to more efficient DNA repair.
Researchers apply DOT neuroimaging to patients receiving repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) for depression to better understand the effectiveness of the brain stimulation for the treatment of the disorder.
The anterior insular cortex appears to be a gate to conscious awareness, researchers conclude.
Osanetant, a drug that inhibits the Tac2 pathway, has opposite effects on the recall of traumatic events in male and female mice.
Researchers identify the mechanisms that support the brain’s ability to adapt the way it processes information depending upon the environment we are in.
Using single nucleus RNA sequencing, researchers have mapped 21 subtypes of motor neurons in the spinal cords of mice.
Study finds evidence of inflammation in the blood of patients during the early stages of Parkinson’s disease. The findings support the theory that inflammation is a driver of the neurodegenerative disorder. The effect was most noticed in women with Par…
