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.
The United States military has revealed their plans to hack the brains of their soldiers to enhance their cognitive abilities, meaning what they could normally learn in weeks, they could learn in a matter of hours
Is humankind getting dumber? Natural selection is working against humankind this time.
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.
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).
Scientists are growing 300 “test tube” human brains with the goal of studying and developing cures for neurological disorders.
Elon Musk’s “neural lace” project will link the human brain with artificial intelligence to help achieve a symbiotic human-and-machine relationship.
You might want to cover your nose the next time you are going out the city. A study conducted by the researchers of Universities Lancaster, Oxford and Manchester found out that the air we breathe can potentially increase the risk of having Alzheimer's disease.
A team of scientists has discovered a "revolutionary" way to create small animals, such as mice, completely transparent from head to tail to advance further research on brain mapping.
According to scientists from the Cardiff University, humans have big brains because we always judge others.
The study also revealed that lifestyle changes and behavioral treatment are better than oral medications.
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.
Violent, attacking rage in mice could be turned on and off by brain adjustments in a recent study. Researchers say that learning more about brain circuitry regarding aggression in male mice could lend clues later to what drives human actions.
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.
