How Spanking May Affect Brain Development in Children
Corporal punishment may detrimentally harm brain development, a new study reports

Study Showing How the Brain Retrieves Facts and May Help People With Memory Problems
A shared set of brain regions play a vital role in the retrieval of weak memories

Autism Gene Study Finds Widespread Impact to Brain’s Growth Signaling Network
Mutations in the autism-related Dyrk1a gene lead to brain undergrowth in mice

Chronic Sinus Inflammation Appears to Alter Brain Activity
Researchers link the inflammation associated with chronic sinus infections to alterations in brain activity in networks that govern cognition, external stimuli, and introspection

A Blood Test For Depression and Bipolar Disorder
A new blood test can distinguish the severity of a person’s depression and their risk for developing severe depression at a later point

Key Brain Molecule May Play Role in Many Brain Disorders
miRNA29 is a key cellular switch in controlling late-stage brain development

Leptin Puts the Brakes on Eating via Novel Neurocircuit
Researchers have identified novel neurocircuitry between midbrain structures which are modulated by leptin to control eating behaviors in mice

Study Links Prenatal Phthalate Exposure to Altered Information Processing in Infants
Fetal exposure to phthalates alters cognitive processing in young children, a new study reports. Children whose mothers were exposed to higher levels of phthalates during pregnancy exhibited slower information processing skills. Male children were most likely to experience difficulties

Outside Factors May Help Children Develop Internal Control
A new theory proposes executive function, or the ability to control your behavior, might not exist just within the mind. External influences may dictate the development of internal control

New Blueprint of Brain Connections Reveals Extensive Reach of Central Regulator
A new map of the basal ganglia provides a blueprint of the structure of the brain region and reveals a new level of influence connected to this area

Vitamins for Your Neurons
All-trans retinoic acid, a vitamin A derivative, induces synaptic plasticity in human cortical neurons

‘Zombie’ Genes? Some Genes Come to Life in the Brain After Death
In the hours after death, some cells in the human brain not only remain active, they grow in size

Brain Thickness and Connectivity, Not Just Location, Correlates With Behavior
Cortical thickness and regional brain connectivity pay an equally important role in linking brain and behavior

Why the Brain Never Processes the Same Input in the Same Way
Depending on the network state, certain neurons in the primary somatosensory cortex can be more or less excitable, which shapes stimulus processing in the brain

Scientists Observe Learning Processes Online in the Brain
Repeatedly administered tactile simulation over a sustained period of time alters neural processing of the hand area in the brain. The observable changes over time illustrate neuroplasticity and shed new light on the process of learning

Discovery of “Thought Worms” Opens Window to the Mind
Researchers have discovered a brain-based marker for new thoughts, reporting people experience more than 6,000 thoughts per day. The study reports a new method that can detect indirectly when one thought ends and another begins
