Researchers investigate why many of us wake in the middle of the night and dwell on our fears.
A painting of a naked woman by Picasso has been hidden under one of his “Blue Period” works for almost a century. With the help of artificial intelligence, researchers have been able to reproduce the lost painting.
Both those with schizophrenia and those with social anhedonia have alterations in the social brain network and a diminished correlation with real-world social network size.
Study reveals microglia play an important role in the maintenance of blood delivery to the brain. The findings may prove important to the study and treatment of cognitive decline, dementia, and stroke.
Hyperactivity, impulsivity, and inattention are more common in male dogs and young puppies, researchers say. The findings correspond to age and gender associated with ADHD in humans.
A new, freely available brain atlas reveals how brain metabolism changes throughout the life of mice.
Memories of objects from stressful situations rely on similar neural activity to memories of the stressful events themselves.
A new study reveals our genes play a key role in how our bodies respond to exercise. Researchers also identified specific genes that influence the outcome of different types of physical activity.
Each person has a specific brain “fingerprint”, and that fingerprint changes over the course of our lives, a new study reports.
Those with a genetic predisposition to clinical depression are more likely to exhibit physical symptoms including migraines, chronic pain, and fatigue, researchers report.
How do we make decisions during times when we are uncertain? A new study may have clues. Researchers identified a specific set of neurons that prevent the brain from using unreliable information when faced with decision-making.
Study finds a link between post-traumatic brain activity and an increase in anxiety symptoms six months after a traumatic event.
Moment-to-moment fluctuations in brain activity over a three-minute period can reliably predict how receptive a person with social anxiety will be to cognitive behavioral therapy.
A diet high in processed foods leads to neuroinflammation and memory decline in older rats, a new study reports. Supplementing a processed food diet with DHA, an omega 3 fatty acid, helped mitigate memory problems and reduce inflammation.
Researchers have identified how specific neurons in the cuneate nucleus help filter distracting information to coordinate dexterous movements. The findings have implications for the development of new prosthetics and robotic equipment that can fine-tun…
Study reveals blunted activity in the medial prefrontal cortex was associated with aggressive behaviors by abusive partners in relationships.
Mouse study identifies specific neurons and a signaling pathway to regions of the hindbrain that mediate sexual reproductive activity and physical activity that appear to influence activity behaviors during ovulation. The findings may provide valuable …
Oxytocin therapy is ineffective at improving social skills in children on the autism spectrum.
Singing and imagined musical improvisation were associated with weaker connectivity to the executive function network in the brain and to the feeling of flow, which allows for unhindered musical creativity.
Motor-sensing neurons in sensory organs play a key role in motion-induced sleepiness.
