Latest Cerebrum Stories
When evaluating another person's emotions – happy, sad, angry, afraid – humans take cues from facial expressions.
Chronic stressors such as poverty or abuse can have a lasting negative impact on children and could be linked to behavioral, health or employment-related problems later on in life, according to new research appearing in the latest edition of the journal Biological Psychiatry.
An international study has analysed the association between childhood maltreatment and the volume of cerebral grey matter, responsible for processing information. The results revealed a significant deficit in various late developing regions of the brain after abuse.
Research has found that facial expressions can convey more information than verbal communication alone and a new Harvard University study has found that an angry glare can add effectiveness to a negotiator’s demands.
Are rats capable of showing emotions, such as regret? A new study from the University of Minnesota Medical School's Department of Neuroscience suggests they can.
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.
Nationwide Insurance Foundation provides additional $1.4 million in grants to Feeding America and network food banks in support of the communities they serve CHICAGO,
People who claim to see “Jesus in toast” may no longer be mocked in the future thanks to a new study by researchers at the University of Toronto and partner institutions in China.
Our brain activity is more similar to that of speakers we are listening to when we can predict what they are going to say.
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 midbrain, also known as the mesencephalon is the part of the brain most responsible for vision, motor control, arousal, temperature regulation, alertness and hearing. Formation and Orientation The midbrain is found under the cerebral cortex and above the hindbrain. The mesencephalon is not divided into any other portions of the brain unlike the other two vesicles that stem from the neural tube. There are four separate lobes on the side of the cerebral aqueduct within the...
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...
