Scientists Debunk the IQ Myth: Notion of Measuring One's Intelligence Quotient by Singular, Standardized Test Is Highly Misleading
After conducting the largest online intelligence study on record, a Western University-led research team has concluded that the notion of measuring one's intelligence quotient or IQ by a singular, standardized test is highly misleading

How the Brain Categorizes Thousands of Objects and Actions
Our eyes may be our window to the world, but how do we make sense of the thousands of images that flood our retinas each day? Scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, have found that the brain is wired to put in order all the categories of objects and actions that we see. They have created the first interactive map of how the brain organizes these groupings.

MRIs Reveal Signs of Brain Injuries Not Seen in CT Scans
Hospital MRIs may be better at predicting long-term outcomes for people with mild traumatic brain injuries than CT scans, the standard technique for evaluating such injuries in the emergency room, according to a clinical trial led by researchers at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) and the San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center (SFGH)

How We Update Our Goals Based On New Information
Humans are adept at setting goals and updating them as new situations arise - for example, a person who is playing a video game may switch to a new goal when their phone rings.

Advanced Brain Investigations Can Become Better and Cheaper
An important method for brain research and diagnosis is magnetoencephalography (MEG). But the MEG systems are so expensive that not all EU countries have one today. A group of Swedish researchers are now showing that MEG can be performed with technology that is significantly cheaper than that which is used today-technology that can furthermore provide new knowledge about the brain

Unprecedented Accuracy in Locating Brain Electrical Activity With New Device
Researchers at Aalto University in Finland have developed the world's first device designed for mapping the human brain that combines whole-head magnetoencephalography (MEG) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology. MEG measures the electrical function and MRI visualizes the structure of the brain. The merging of these two technologies will produce unprecedented accuracy in locating brain electrical activity non-invasively

Two Steps During LTP Remodel Internal Skeleton Of Dendritic Spines
Neuroscience researchers have discovered how a structural component within neurons performs coordinated movements when connections are strengthened. Researchers also distinguished two separate steps during long term potentiation which are involved in remodeling the internal “skeletons” of dendritic spines

Loneliness? It’s All a State of Mind
Researchers from UCL have found that lonely people have less grey matter in a part of the brain associated with decoding eye gaze and other social cues

How the Brain Forms Categories
Neurobiologists investigated how the brain is able to group external stimuli into stable categories

First Micro-Structure Atlas of the Human Brain Completed
A European team of scientists have built the first atlas of white-matter microstructure in the human brain

A Glance at the Brain’s Circuit Diagram
A new method facilitates the mapping of connections between neurons

Discovery of Two Opposite Ways Humans Voluntarily Forget Unwanted Memories
It turns out there’s not one, but two opposite ways in which the brain allows us to voluntarily forget unwanted memories

Researchers Explore How the Brain Perceives Direction and Location
Dartmouth neurobiologist Jeffrey Taube asks “where are you?” and “where are you going?”

Researchers Discover that the Sleeping Brain Behaves as if it’s Remembering Something
UCLA researchers have for the first time measured the activity of a brain region known to be involved in learning, memory and Alzheimer’s disease during sleep

S1 long-term plasticity
S1 long-term plasticity refers to persistent modifications in the structure or functioning of the primary somatosensory cortex

Discovery of Gatekeeper Nerve Cells Explains the Effect of Nicotine on Learning and Memory
Swedish researchers at Uppsala University have, together with Brazilian collaborators, discovered a new group of nerve cells that regulate processes of learning and memory

Frontal eye field
The Frontal Eye Field is a region of primate prefrontal cortex defined as the area in which low-current electrical stimulation evokes saccadic eye movements

Researchers Create a Universal Map of Vision in the Human Brain
The researchers combined traditional fMRI measures of brain activity from 25 people with normal vision. They then identified a precise statistical relationship between the structure of the folds of the brain and the representation of the visual world.

Simpler Nervous Systems

Music Underlies Language Acquisition
Contrary to the prevailing theories that music and language are  cognitively separate or that music is a byproduct of language, theorists at Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music and the University of Maryland, College Park advocate that music underlies the ability to acquire language
