Two newly developed tests, one which analyzes urine samples and a simple blood test, can detect the presence of glioma brain cancer.
Study reveals how decisions based on visual information, which involves a complex stream of data flowing forwards and backward along the visual pathways, are broadcast widely to neurons in the visual system, including those not involved in the decision…
Artificial intelligence technology was able to accurately predict attachment in young children.
While the visual cortex stores individual images in the brain, the hippocampus plays a significant role in the ability to recognize a sequence of images.
A newly developed questionnaire can detect autism in children between the ages of 18 to 30 months.
Teens who have self-harmed five or more times in their lives have a significantly higher pain threshold than those who have never self-harmed.
A new study reveals the impact climate played in the evolution of the human brain and body. Studying 300 fossils from the genus Homo found across the globe, researchers found those who lived in colder climates had larger body frames. Larger bodies prov…
The central amygdala isn’t only the hub for fear response in the brain, it also contains microcircuits that regulate the suppression of fear response.
Researchers identified a novel, direct link between autism and the SUV39H2 gene.
1 in 20 children hospitalized for COVID-19 in the UK develop neurological complications associated with the viral infection. A new study reveals a wide spectrum of neurological complications in children and suggests they may be more common than in adul…
A new theory proposes an imbalance of blood proteins involved in the immune system and in blood clotting networks leads to inflammation that contributes to the development of psychosis.
A new study demonstrated dogs do not reciprocate food-giving, nor do they act more favorably toward a friendly human.
Inherent randomness in the flow rate of red blood cells through capillaries could be a cause of oxygen fluctuations in the brain.
Jumping spiders can distinguish between living and non-living objects based upon their movement, a new study reports.
Emotional knowledge, cooperative social behavior, and locomotor activity are three key skills for promoting numerical learning in young children.
Combining EEG data and MRI brain scans, researchers discovered how, during sleep, the hippocampus sends memory information it has stored throughout the day to the cerebral cortex, allowing for memory consolidation.
Using human stem cells to develop a brain organoid model, researchers were able to show exposure to a common pesticide synergizes with an autism-linked gene mutation. The study provides clear evidence that genetics and environment may combine to disrup…
Cannabis terpenes, the part of the plant which provides aroma and flavor, may provide therapeutic benefits in controlling pain, a new study reports.
When a rat helps another within its social group, brain areas associated with reward and motivation become more active. This does not occur when a rat is faced with the prospect of helping another rat outside its social group. Researchers say the findi…
Early-life exposure to antibiotics could impact brain development in areas associated with emotional and cognitive function, a new study reports. Researchers found penicillin exposure in infant mice altered the microbiome and gene expression in key are…
