Heat Waves Could Lead to Avian Population Decline

Researchers examined how heat impacts the behavior and physiology of Zebra finches. They discovered that heat altered the activity of hundreds of genes in the testis, but fewer in the brain, ...

Supernumerary Virtual Robotic Arms Can Feel Like Part of Our Body

Researchers have developed a virtual robotic limb system which can be operated by users' feet in a virtual environment as extra, or supernumerary, limbs. After training, users reported feeling like ...

Developmental Dyslexia Essential to Human Adaptive Success

Researchers say people with developmental dyslexia have specific strengths relating to exploring the unknown that have contributed to the successful adaptation and survival of our ...
The neural and cognitive complexity of the octopus could originate from a molecular analogy with the human brain, according to a new study. The research shows that the same ...

A New Model Sheds Light on How We Learn Motor Skills

Researchers have developed a mathematical model of motor learning that reflects the motor learning process in the human brain. Their findings suggest that motor exploration -- that is, increased ...

Astrocytic Urea Cycle in the Brain Controls Memory Impairment in Alzheimer's Disease

Researchers have revealed the presence of a functional urea cycle in the star-shaped cells of the Alzheimer's Disease (AD) brain. Key results point to the role of the urea cycle in amyloid-beta ...

ALS May Be Linked to Both the Immune and Central Nervous Systems

The immune system may play a fundamental role along with the central nervous system in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as 'Lou Gehrig's disease,' researchers ...

Fights in Pro Hockey Don't Deter Greater Violence, Study Finds

Allowing fights among players in the National Hockey Leagues does not deter greater violence in the modern game, according to a new ...

Uncovering Links Between Grit and Cognitive Function

Gritty people may be more able to self-regulate and show 'cautious control' -- but don't necessarily have greater cognitive ability, according to a new ...

Research Reveals the Pons Plays a Significant Role in Processing Sad Information

Researchers conducted studies to explain the neural mechanisms of the pons-corticolimbic network in perpetuating sad mood in ...

Feelings of Detachment Predict Worse Mental Health Outcomes After Trauma

Following trauma, feeling detached from one's surroundings may suggest a higher risk of later developing serious mental health conditions. It's important to screen for feeling detached to ...

PICASSO Technique Drives Biological Molecules Into Technicolor?

Pablo Picasso's surreal cubist artistic style shifted common features into unrecognizable scenes, but a new imaging approach bearing his namesake may elucidate the most complicated subject: the ...

Reducing Air Pollution Can Support Healthy Brain Development

A new study finds that having a portable air cleaner in the home can reduce the negative impacts of air pollution on brain development in children. Scientists are studying the benefits of using air ...

Inhaled Toxic Particles Take Direct Route from Lungs to Brain

Breathing in polluted air could lead to toxic particles being transported from lungs to brain, via the bloodstream -- potentially contributing to brain disorders and neurological damage, a new study ...

Muscle Biopsy Test for Biomarker Could Lead to Earlier Diagnosis of ALS

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive disease of the nervous system. It affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord called motor neurons. Motor neurons control muscle movement and ...

How the Brain Interprets Motion While in Motion

New research provides insights into a neural mechanism involved in how the brain interprets sensory information. The research may have applications for treating brain disorders and designing ...

Walking Gives the Brain a 'Step-Up' in Function for Some

It has long been thought that when walking is combined with a task -- both suffer. Researchers have now found that this is not always the case. Some young and healthy people improve performance on ...

Who Benefits from Brain Training and Why?

If you are skilled at playing puzzles on your smartphone or tablet, what does it say about how fast you learn new puzzles, or, more broadly, how well you can focus, say, in school or at work? Or, in ...

Single Brain Scan Can Diagnose Alzheimer's Disease

A single MRI scan of the brain could be enough to diagnose Alzheimer's disease, according to new ...

Diversity of Centrosomes Delivers New Clues for Neurological Diseases

A neurobiologist is pursuing important leads in her quest to elucidate the causes of neurological diseases. Together with her team, she has gained new insights into the human centrosome, whose ...

Gene Discovery Indicates Motor Neuron Diseases Caused by Abnormal Lipid Processing in Cells

A new genetic discovery adds weight to a theory that motor neuron degenerative diseases are caused by abnormal lipid (fat) processing pathways inside brain cells. This theory will help pave the way ...
