A team of bioengineers from Tufts University in Massachusetts have developed three-dimensional brain-like cortical tissue that is similar in structure and function to tissues found in the brain of a rat which can be kept alive in the laboratory for more than eight weeks.

While analyzing the brain processes associated with sight, researchers from the University of Glasgow have discovered that the visual cortex processes information not just from the eyes, but from the ears as well.

Scientists Hunt Down Origin Of Huntington's Disease In The Brain

The gene mutation that causes Huntington's disease appears in every cell in the body, yet kills only two types of brain cells. Why? UCLA scientists used a unique approach to switch the gene off in individual brain regions and zero in on those that play a role in causing the disease in mice.

The Prenatal Origins Of Autism In The Developing Brain

A new study from the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and the Allen Institute for Brain Science provides evidence that the development of autism begins during pregnancy.

Keep this in mind: Scientists say they've learned how your brain plucks information out of working memory when you decide to act.

Males Differ From Females In Specific Brain Structures
2014-02-12 13:09:03

Reviewing over 20 years of neuroscience research into sex differences in brain structure, a Cambridge University team has conducted the first meta-analysis of the evidence, published this week in the prestigious journal Neuroscience and Biobehavioral Reviews.

Genetic Variation Linked To Intellectual Ability
2014-02-12 04:19:25

Previous research studies have demonstrated that the thickness of the cerebral cortex, or “cortical thickness,” is closely related to intellectual ability, and a new study from scientists at King's College London has revealed a gene related to both cortical thickness and intelligence .

Spending A Week In Darkness May Improve Hearing Loss

It has long been known that if you take away once sense from a person, the other four will become more finely tuned. A new study, published in Neuron, reveals that minimizing a person's sight for as little as a week may help improve the brain's ability to process hearing.

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...
