For the first time, surgeons have successfully repaired a major malformation in the brain of a fetus.
In a new study, a model trained on functional magnetic resonance imaging scans of three volunteers was able to predict whole sentences they were hearing with surprising accuracy—just by looking at their brain activity.
At the time of death, brain activity was detected in the TPJ region of the brain - a recent study found. The TPJ region already has a known association with dreaming, hallucinations, and altered states of consciousness.
Recent tests show that the zone of uncertainty in the brain is encoding previous experiences in a special bidirectional way that hasn't been seen before.
Researchers from the University of Copenhagen and University of Rochester have identified a layer of tissue that helps protect our gray and white matter, one that hasn't been distinguished before.
The cerebellum is known primarily for the regulation of movement. Researchers have now discovered that the cerebellum also plays an important role in remembering emotional experiences.
A former science teacher who's been blind for 16 years became able to see letters, discern objects' edge thanks to a visual prosthesis that includes a camera and a brain implant.
For the first time, more 360 scientists from 184 different institutions have contributed to a global effort to find more than 200 regions of the genome and more than 300 specific genetic variations that affect the structure of the grey matter.
The latest study suggests the area in the human nose seems to carry on producing neurons in our adulthood, based on an analysis of human tissue taken from seven middle-aged human donors.
Scientists have uncovered a new kind of electrical process in the human brain that could play a key role in the unique way our brains compute.Researchers have discovered that certain cells in the human cortex transmit signals in a way not seen before.
We have made a great deal of progress in understanding brain activity, and how it contributes to human behavior. But what no one has so far managed to explain is how all of this results in feelings, emotions and experiences.
Earlier this year, US team announced they had grown a mini-brain with neural activity similar to that seen in a preterm infant. The ability to feel or experience the world around them, may be just around the corner — and all the ethical implications it brings.
Using a noninvasive brain-computer interface (BCI), researchers have developed the first-ever successful mind-controlled robotic arm exhibiting the ability to continuously track and follow a computer cursor.
Gentle jolts of alternating current to the brain restored the waning working memories of older adults (aged 60 to 76 years old) to performance levels seen in younger adults (aged 20 to 29)—at least for a little under an hour.
The human brain can unconsciously respond to changes in Earth's magnetic fields, according to a team of geoscientists and neurobiologists.
