Early detection for speech and language disorders in children is crucial. But many of these incidents remained unnoticed until later in life.
A new study has revealed that certain proteins that play a vital role in the progression of cancer are stored in the dormant cancer cells as amyloid bodies which help in the growth of neurological diseases such as the Alzheimer's disease.
Blind people dream a bit differently than those who have been gifted with sight -- and their experience may be richer than ours.
The Human Brain Project is a 10-year global project that would provide advance knowledge of how the human brain operates.
Turns out, "sleeping on it," as they say, really does help.
Scientists have created "mini-brains" in the lab in order to study neurological diseases. The tiny brains are made up of many of the neurons and cells of the human brain, and even have some of the same functionality.
Rats in the study were more likely to go after a sugary treat even if it was risky or they knew better when in this type of environment.
Premature babies are at a higher risk for neurological and psychiatric problems, according to recent findings presented this week at Neuroscience 2015, the annual scientific meeting of the Society for Neuroscience in Chicago.
University of Vienna researchers have revealed in a study that having a larger brain doesn't necessarily prove that a higher IQ is guaranteed.
Adolescence is a critical time when the brain is growing, changing and continuously developing. That's why it's so important that outside factors in no way interrupt this process, including things like social stress, memory formation and/or drug use.
Mind control isn't just science fiction. Researchers have designed a brain implant that can control the actions of mice with the press of a button.
When it comes to learning more about biological organisms, 3D deep-imaging may be the future. A team of neuroscientists has devised a fast, inexpensive imaging method for probing the molecular intricacies of large biological samples in three dimensions.
