Latest Human brain Stories
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.
How the human brain and human cognitive abilities evolved in less than six million years has long puzzled scientists.
While researchers have long known that the left hemisphere of the human brain is critical in the process of producing and decoding semantics and language, the intricacies have largely remained a mystery.
Soccer players beware: Doctors warn that ‘heading’ too many balls can lead to brain damage. That’s the message in a new study from researchers who persented their research at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America.
The structure of the corpus callosum, a thick band of nerve fibres that connects the two halves of the brain with each other and in this way enables the rapid exchange of information between the left and right hemispheres, plays an important role in the regaining of motor skills following a stroke.
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 brain scans of high school football and hockey players showed subtle injury -- even if they did not suffer a concussion – after taking routine hits to the head during the normal course of play.
Researchers at UCLA have found a possible explanation for why autistic children act and think differently than their peers.
Like a bridge that spans a river to connect two major metropolises, the corpus callosum is the main conduit for information flowing between the left and right hemispheres of our brains.
