Latest Cerebral cortex Stories
The study, initiated by the Swiss researchers and published in Nature, constitutes ground-breaking work in exploring emotions in the brain.
A team of physicians and scientists at Barrow Neurological Institute, in collaboration with colleagues in the Ukraine, have written a first-of-its-kind biography of Ukranian anatomist and histologist Vladimir Betz.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) may progress from the outermost layers of the brain to its deep parts, and isn't always an "inside-out" process as previously thought, reported a new collaborative study from researchers at the Mayo Clinic and the Cleveland Clinic.
Neuroimaging has provided fascinating insight into the dynamic nature of human brain maturation.
Primates learn from feedback that surprises them, and in a recent investigation of how that happens, neurosurgeons have learned something new.
Structures in the midbrain that developed early in evolution can be responsible for functions in newborns which in adults are taken over by the cerebral cortex.
In a new study scientists at NYU Langone Medical Center have shown that the sense of smell can be improved.
A new study using magnetic resonance imaging data of 406 adult human twins affirms the long-standing idea that the genetic basis of human cortical regionalization – the organization of the outer brain into specific functional areas – is similar to and consistent with patterns found in other mammals, indicating a common conservation mechanism in evolution.
The exact causes of autism remain unknown, but failure of a vital prenatal process may be one of the culprits. A new study, published in the November 9 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Society (JAMA), confirms this relatively recent theory.
In everyday life, attention and awareness appear tightly interwoven.
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...
