Researchers were able to turn back time on mice brains. Will this be possible for humans in the future?
In the ongoing search for scientific explanations for out-of-body experiences that take place when a person is near-death, a team of researchers used an fMRI brain scanner and cameras to create the illusion that a person’s body was located in a different part of a room.

Through the development of a new data analytics tool, medical researchers at the University of Warwick in the United Kingdom have opened the door to understanding the physical differences in the brain associated with autism, ADHD and a number of other cognitive conditions.
Scientists had long believed that the processing in our visual system is mostly done in the visual cortex at the back of the brain. However, a new study from a Vanderbilt University and Boston University has found that some significant processing actually occurs along the way – in the thalamus.
If you’ve ever been cornered by an extrovert at a party, they’ll probably fall into one of two categories: "affiliative" chatterers or “agentic" self-starters.
Leave it to the US Defense Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to create something that makes smart glasses and augmented reality headsets seem passé: the team behind some of the military’s most cutting edge technology is creating implants that can give people Terminator vision.
Scientists of the future might look back on the 21st century as a pivotal moment in the evolution of the human thumb.
Study in humans tracks information flow within the brain using ultra-precise magnetic resonance imaging
When we want to listen carefully to someone, the first thing we do is stop talking.
Formation and Orientation The development of the brain is broken down into stages. The basic evolution begins in the third week of the embryonic process where the neural plate is formed. By week four, the neural plate has developed into the neural tube. The anterior part of the tube, the telencephalon, grows rapidly as it prepares to later give way to the brain. As time goes on, cells begin to classify themselves as either neurons or glial cells, thus determining their functions. Glial...
