A new map of the brain details 100 previously unexplored parts and aims to help scientists improve on studies about brain diseases.
Researchers at the John Hopkins Univeristy take a glimpse in the process behind free will tha occurs in the brain during voluntary decisions.
What does science have to say about the benefits of silence? Preliminary research (done on mice) suggests that prolonged periods of silence may trigger new brain cell development and help improve memory.
A new study shows that people with uncontrollable anger issue have a decreased connectivity between regions of the brain responsible for sensory input, langguage processing and social interaction.
Scientists have built a device that can extract rough images out of a human brain. It might be called a mind-reading machine, if you're feeling generous, the technology is not yet ready for primetime.
A study suggests that birds have significantly more neurons in their small brains than primates’ brains and other mammals.
A new MRI study conducted by a team of international researchers shows that the brain of schizophrenic petients have the capacity to reorganize and fight the illness.
A new study shows that the mother’s voice activates different regions in children’s brains.
Higher amounts of breast milk cosumed by premature babies improves chances of having larger cotisal-surface area.
Although cognitive skills tend to decline with age, there are some things you can do to rewire your brain and give a boost to that brain machinery.
Don't worry if you don't get the rest and relaxation you wanted on your first night at a new place. It is just your brain acting up on its survival mechanism in an unfamiliar environment, new study shows.
For the first time researchers have successfully froze a rabbit's brain, preserving its all of its synapses, cell membranes, and intracellular structures. This marks a major breakthrough in cryopreservation.
Genome sequencing, paired with a behavioral test, identified several genes linked to anxiety in chickens. Researchers believe the same genes may play a role in mouse and human behavior.
Some prairie voles are monogamous, while others seek out multiple mates. In a recent study, researchers from the University of Texas at Austin reveal sexual behavior is largely controlled by genetic differences in the rodents' brains, suggesting natural selection has allowed for both characteristics to co-exist.
