New study of brain evolution shows we don't have a 'lizard brain'
Max Planck Institute researchers have identified hundreds of neuron types in reptiles and mammals, shared and unique, spread all across both brain types.
Long-lasting memory boosts achieved with simple brain stimulation
Researchers have discovered they can stimulate different brain regions non-invasively with weak electrical currents to improve short and long-term memory.
New AI algorithm detects brain abnormalities that lead to epilepsy
Researchers have developed a new artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm as part of the MELD project to detect brain abnormalities that lead to epilepsy.
Scientists warn of what happens to the brain after midnight
Researchers have warned of the changes in the brain that occur after midnight and are calling for more research to elucidate them.
Alzheimer's can now be detected 17 years in advance, before symptoms
German researchers have created a new method to detect biomarkers of Alzheimer's disease in people up to 17 years ahead of time.
Huge study reveals low serotonin levels aren't the cause of depression
Researchers from the University College London have found 'no convincing evidence' that serotonin abnormalities cause depression.
Scientists can now remotely control fruit flies' brains with magnetism
Rice University researchers can now use magnetism to remotely control fruit flies spreading their wings by altering brain neurons.
Cognitive decline associated with as few as 4 alcoholic drinks a week
A UK Biobank study of almost 21,000 people has found lower cognitive ability from drinking due to iron accumulation in the brain.
Video game players show 'superior' decision making skills
Brain scans of video game players have shown better decision-making abilities and enhanced brain activity compared to non-players.
Scientists reveal brain mechanism that compels rats to seek cocaine
Researchers have uncovered a mechanism that causes rats to seek cocaine involving the lateral habenula (LHb) region of the brain.
Scientists use gene editing tool to create violent mutant hamsters
A team of researchers have used the CRISPR gene editing tool to accidentally create two mutant hamsters that are violent.
'Magic' compound rewires the brains of people with depression
Clinical trials have observed increased global integration in the brain correlated with fewer depressive symptoms with psilocybin.
Map of the human brain over our lifespan created from 120,000+ MRIs
Scientists have created a comprehensive look at the progression of the brain from before birth to late in life with 123,984 MRIs.
Scientists have studied how our brain waves change while we die
University of Tartu researchers have recorded increased gamma oscillations in the brain of a dying patient using an EEG device.
