A new study sheds light on the neurobiological processes that occur when we die

Brain Signal that Indicates Whether Speech Has Been Understood Discovered
Using EEG technology, researchers have discovered a specific brain signal that helps us to understand what we hear in conversation

How the Brain Tells Our Limbs Apart
Researchers have identified contrasts in interneurons that govern motor control

Schizophrenia is a Side Effect of Human Development
Researchers have identified altered gene expression in the prefrontal area of the brain in those with schizophrenia. The study reports schizophrenia may have evolved as ‘side effect’ of human brain development

Movie Memento Uncovers How the Brain Remembers and Interprets Events From Clues
Using the movie Memento, researchers discover how the brain creates memories to piece together complex storylines

When it Comes to Our Brains, There’s No Such Thing as Normal
When it comes to the brain, there is “no fixed normal”, researchers say

Electrical Implant Reduces ‘Invisible’ Symptoms of Man’s Spinal Cord Injury
Epidural stimulation has helped improve some of the ‘hidden’ effects, such as abnormal blood pressure and bladder dysfunction, in a patient with spinal cord injury

Newborn Babies Who Suffered Stroke Regain Language Function in Opposite Side of Brain
According to researchers, following a perinatal stroke that damages the language area in the left hemisphere, the brain remaps to use the right hemisphere for language

Pioneering Technique Helps People with Schizophrenia Control Brain Activity
Researchers have developed a new technique that could allow those with schizophrenia, who do not respond to medications, to control verbal hallucinations

Love and Fear Are Visible Across the Brain, Not Restricted to One Region
A new study reports basic emotions, such as happiness and anger, are not limited to specific regions, but have distinct connectivity patterns that encompass much of the brain

Birds and Primates Share Brain Cell Types Linked to Intelligence
Researchers reveal that, while the anatomical structures of bird, reptile and mammalian brains differ, all contain certain types of cells linked to cognitive ability

How Your Brain Helps You Learn New Skills
A new study reveals how fast spiking interneurons improve the efficiency of learning a new skill

Shedding Light on Genetic Overlap Between Major Psychiatric Disorders
Researchers have identified a range of psychiatric disorders, including schizophrenia and autism, that share physical characteristics at the molecular level. Specifically, the study identifies common patterns of neural gene expression. In addition, researchers note important differences in gene expression that distinguish the disorders

How the Brain Constructs the World
Two new studies shed light on the processes that underlie the integration and storage of sensory information

A new study reveals a diverse array of genetic changes that occur in the brain following sensory experiences

The Molecular Mechanisms Behind Memory Formation
Researchers have identified a cellular pathway that encodes memories by strengthening specific neurons

Distinctive Brain Patterns Help Habits Form
MIT researchers have identified neurons that fire at the start and conclusion of a behavior as it becomes a habit

Full Length Serotonin Receptor Structure Seen For First Time
Researchers have been able to view the full length of serotonin receptors for the first time, with the help of Nobel prize winning microscope technology. The snapshot of the receptor includes details of molecular binding sites that could help with the development of a range of new drugs

Dim Light May Make Us Dumber
A new study reveals exposure to dim light might impact memory and learning. Researchers report rodents exposed to dim lighting lost 30 percent of hippocampal capacity and performed poorly on spatial tasks they had previously experienced
