Our brains give us the remarkable ability to make sense of situations we've never encountered before—a familiar person in an unfamiliar place, for example, or a coworker in a different job role—but the mechanism our brains use to accomplish this has been a longstanding mystery of neuroscience. Now, researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder have demonstrated that our brains could process these new situations by relying on a method similar to the "pointer" system used by...

Virtual Brain Capable Of Daydreaming Just As Humans Do
2013-07-13 07:55:26

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A team of international researchers, led by Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, has created a virtual model of the brain capable of daydreaming like humans do. The computer model is based on the dynamics of brain cells and the many connections those cells make with their neighbors and cells in other brain regions. The team hopes their model will help further understanding of why certain portions of the brain work...

Recent findings force scientists to rethink the rules of neuroimaging Is there a brain area for mind-wandering? For religious experience? For reorienting attention? A recent study casts serious doubt on the evidence for these ideas, and rewrites the rules for neuroimaging. Brain mapping experiments attempt to identify the cognitive functions associated with discrete cortical regions. They generally rely on a method known as "cognitive subtraction." However, recent research reveals a...
