Latest Cerebral cortex Stories
It's a chilling thought--losing the sense of sight because of severe injury or damage to the brain's visual cortex. But, is it possible to train a damaged or injured brain to "see" again after such a catastrophic injury?
The first atlas of the surface of the human brain based upon genetic information has been produced by a national team of scientists.
If you are looking for a particular object — say a yellow pencil — on a cluttered desk, how does your brain work to visually locate it?
Researchers at the University of Cambridge report that they created cerebral cortex cells from a small sample of human skin.
Life shrouds most choices in mystery.
Neuroscientists Hyungbae Kwon, PhD and Hiroki Taniguchi, PhD will join Max Planck Florida Institute as research group leaders.
New research from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) might help explain how a gene mutation found in some autistic individuals leads to difficulties in processing auditory cues and paying spatial attention to sound.
Hundreds of times during a baseball game, the home plate umpire must instantaneously categorize a fast-moving pitch as a ball or a strike.
The incredible ability of our brain to create a three-dimensional (3D) representation from an object's two-dimensional projection on the retina is something that we may take for granted, but the process is not well understood and is likely to be highly complex.
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...
