Researchers are now looking at a new method to treat the obesity epidemic: The brain.
Gender differences make the brain a very differently complex organ between men and women.
There's a new breakthrough when it comes to restoring memory--at least in mice. Researchers have used human embryonic stem cells in the small mammals which allowed them to regain the ability to learn and remember.
Full 3D immersion is applied to a growing number of scientific applications, and one of them is now visualizing special brain scans of patients. The 3D brain is a novel way to examine data from images taken during a patient's actual migraine attack, says DaSilva, who heads the Headache and Orofacial...
Researchers have revealed for the first time how bats perceive three-dimensional, volumetric space by measuring their brain cells during flight.
Stress can make your hair fall out. Stress can make sleep poorly. Stress is, presumably, always bad--or is it? New research reveals that some stress can be good for you.
A study conducted by Hollis Karoly, a doctoral student in CU-Boulder's psychology and neuroscience department, links aerobic exercise with less damage to white matter in the brain among heavy alcohol drinkers.
Research shows that brain exercises, not pills, are a better way to address the worsening symptoms of dementia.
There could be a way to engineer brains cells. Researchers have discovered a technique that can directly convert skin cells to the type of brain cells that are destroyed in some genetic disorders.
New research reveals what makes music so rewarding to humans and why people like some types of music more than others.
Brains treated with chemicals can turn transparent. The new technique could clear up some mental mysteries and could allow researchers to move forward with the brain mapping project.
Researchers were astonished by the surprising result of their analysis of brain scans, showing that the level of pain can be revealed in universal patterns. This is a major breakthrough that makes it possible to measure pain objectively for the first time.
