Science Says Silence Is Much More Important To Our Brains Than We Think
Silence may allow your brain to rejuvenate leaving you feeling a new freedom
You can grow new brain cells. Here's how
Can we, as adults, grow new neurons? Neuroscientist Sandrine Thuret says that we can, and she offers research and practical advice on how we can help our brains better perform neurogenesis—improving m...
Primates With Big Brains Eat Fruit
Ask any biologist what makes primates special, and they’ll tell you the same thing: big brains. Alex DeCasien collected data about the diets and social lives...
Astronauts Going To Mars Could Face Brain Damage, Study Warns
Going to Mars could be bad for astronauts’ brains, a new study using rodents has found.
Marijuana Compound Removes Alzheimer's-Related Protein From Nerve Cells
With the prevalence of Alzheimer's disease expected to almost triple in the United States by 2050, there is an urgent need to identify effective treatmen...
New 'Artificial Synapses' Could Let Supercomputers Mimic the Human Brain
Brain-like machines with human-like abilities to solve problems could become a reality, researchers say.
New Technique Captures The Activity Of An Entire Brain In A Snapshot
When it comes to measuring brain activity, scientists have tools that can take a precise look at a small slice of the brain (less than one cubic millimeter), or a blurred look at a larger area. Now, r...
Brains Of People With Schizophrenia Try To Repair Themselves: Study
Schizophrenia is a mysterious, misunderstood mental illness without a full cure. However, researchers from the United Kingdom and China may have found a clue that could help to understand it better.
Your Brain Has A "Delete" Button--Here's How To Use It
This is the fascinating way that your brain makes space to build new and stronger connections so you can learn more.
Manipulation Of Specific Neurons Helps To Erase Bad Memories, Enhance Good Ones
Imagine if memory could be tuned in such a way where good memories are enhanced for those suffering from dementia or bad memories are wiped away for individuals with post-traumatic stress disorder. A ...
Brother And Sister Inherit Disease That Will Stop Them Ever Sleeping Again
A brother and sister have inherited a disease that will stop them from ever sleeping again - and which will eventually kill them. Lachlan and Hayley Webb from Queensland, Australia, suffer from a r...
Oldest Nervous System Found In 520-Million-Year-Old Fossil
Fossils of an ancient creature resembling a shrimp with an armored head contain the oldest and best-preserved nervous system ever found, which could help scientists decipher the evolution of nervous s...
