Neuroscientists found a new type of human brain cell called the rosehip neuron. The mysterious neuron could be one of the few cells that only exist in human or primate brains.
For years, the existence of magnetic particles in the brain has remained a mystery. A new study aims to shed light on these particles by mapping out the magnetic presence for the first time ever.
A boy loses a third of his brain's right hemisphere in a surgery but scientists find that he is doing just fine. Only a few adverse effects appeared and the case remains a remarkable demonstration of the brain's plasticity.
Psychopathy is still largely a mystery to the medical community and the greater pubic. In a new study, researchers show that psychopaths could have fundamentally abnormal attention mechanisms in the brain.
Electrical stimulation to the brain may be effective, albeit controversial, in reducing criminal intent. In a new study, researchers zapped some brains and found that it affects violent tendencies in the participants.
A runny nose is nothing to worry about — or is it? One woman found that her runny nose was actually a sign that her brain fluid was leaking.
As Yale University scientists successfully reanimated over 100 pig brains, questions arise in the ethics of resurrection. Researchers said the process could be done on primates, including humans.
Local inflammation in the region of the brain known as mediobasal hypothalamus (MBH) could trigger overeating and weight gain.
Extra-virgin olive olive could help protect the brain from Alzheimer's disease.
People who moderately consume alcohol are more likely to develop brain changes associated with Alzheimer's disease and dementia than those who drink lightly or don't drink at all.
People suffering from persistent moderate to severe pain were more likely to experience brain changes linked to increase risk of dementia.
Zika virus is capable of hijacking a protein involved in brain development.
Chronic sleep deprivation could make the brain eat itself, increasing the risk of Alzheimer's and other neurological disorders.
Mice exposed to low-dosage of cannabis have more links between nerve cells in the brain, compared to those who were not exposed.
