Results of emerging research published in the journals Nature Communications and Nature Human Behaviour suggest that brain scan patterns can be used to help people conquer their fears and increase their confidence.
A new study revealed that the brain of women during their first pregnancy undergoes structural changes in certain regions that could usually last for at least two years after the pregnancy.
A new non-invasive brain-computer interface allows people to control a robotic arm using only their minds.
A new research presented at the annual meeting of the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) in Leipzig, Germany suggests that babies born to mothers with diabetes may be at risk of poor brain development.
Too much alcohol during adolescence could disrupt the development of certain areas in the brain associated with impulse control and development of substance abuse disorder.

The sensation of being tickled is something that polarizes people. While some enjoy the mild sensation across their skin, others do not appreciate the involuntary shrieks and fidgeting that comes with tickling. Nevertheless, whether it is enjoyable or unpleasant, the reason for laughter as a result of tickles remains a mystery.
Patients with paraplegia may soon walk by themselves again as a team of scientists restored the leg movements of monkeys with the help of wireless brain implants.
By mapping injuries of 36 patients with brainstem lesions (12 in coma and 24 are not), the researchers found out that those in coma had damage in a small "coma-specific" areas of their brainstem while most conscious patient did not have that.
New research studies have indicated that there are better means of finding out whether a person is lying or not. A research from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania has discovered that certain indicators in the brain can be used to detect lying using scans from a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).
