First Steps Toward Mind Reading
2013-10-15 15:39:52

Researchers from Stanford University have used brain monitoring in ‘real-life’ situations to reveal the region of the brain responsible for numerical processing - technology that could eventually lead to mind reading.

How Your Brain Responds To Poetry
2013-10-10 08:05:36

Researchers have been bridging the gap between art and science by mapping the different ways in which the brain responds to poetry and prose.

Several studies have shown that expecting a reward or punishment can affect brain activity in areas responsible for processing different senses, including sight or touch.

Some Fears May Be Eliminated Just By Going To Sleep
2013-09-23 09:25:43

New research has shown some fears could be unlearned while a person sleeps. Using specific odors, such as woody or floral scents, scientists were able to reduce the reactions of subjects who were trained to fear a pair of faces prior to the study.

Neurofeedback Can Enhance The Brain's Signal-to-noise Ratio
2013-09-23 04:58:51

Recent advances in neurofeedback techniques have made it possible to remaster the signal-to-noise ratio of the brain activity underlying our thoughts.

Where Imagination Lives In The Brain
