Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have discovered a fundamental mechanism by which the brain maintains its internal balance.

Brain Activity During Slow-Wave-Sleep Differs Between Mammals And Birds
2014-03-05 10:40:23

When we drift into deep slow-wave sleep (SWS), waves of neuronal activity wash across our neocortex. Birds also engage in SWS, but they lack this particular brain structure.

Our brains have billions of neurons grouped into different regions.

How Sleep Helps Visual Task Learning

As any indignant teacher would scold, students must be awake to learn. But what science is showing with increasing sophistication is how the brain uses sleep for learning as well.

A cross-disciplinary collaboration of researchers in the School of Science at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) explores the neural synchrony between circuits in the brain and their behavior under simulated drug addiction.

Researchers Investigate The Listening Brain

Listening abilities depend on rhythms in the brain

2012-11-05 12:04:18

The brain holds in mind what has just been seen by synchronizing brain waves in a working memory circuit, an animal study supported by the National Institutes of Health suggests.

Visual Awareness Improved Through Rhythmic Oscillations In Brain
2012-08-29 15:40:58

Rhythmic oscillations in the brain provide heightened visual awareness that, when controlled, could help improve visual processing in critical environments such as air traffic control towers and nuclear power plants
