Consciousness requires continuous, internally generated activity in the brain. The modulation of this activity is the basis of the electroencephalogram (EEG) and of generation of sleep, dreams, and perception.
For the first time, scientists have been able to image brain activity when people change their short-term beliefs, and to relate this brain activity to dopamine function in humans.
Sweet and bitter flavors are identified as soon as they are tasted. The study provides new insight into how the brain rapidly detects and discriminates between potentially nutritious and toxic substances.
There are a lot of different technologies with brain mapping functionality, but none have the resolution needed to track underlying cellular and molecular patterns in the brain.
Scientists want to help completely paralyzed people, or “locked-in,” individuals communicate more intuitively by developing a brain machine interface to decode the commands the brain is sending to the tongue, palate, lips and larynx (articulators.)
An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm can produce synthetic brain MR images, solving a number of challenges in training AI algorithms, according to...
The researchers from the University of Waterloo, British Columbia, and Auckland uncovered differences in how the brain processes visual information in patients with various types of lazy eye.

A new, highly accurate magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique can monitor iron levels in the brains of multiple sclerosis (MS) patients.
New research has found that neurons deep inside the brain could hold the key to accurately diagnosing bipolar disorder and depression.
