Scientists Map Brain White-Matter
2012-10-19 13:13:35

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online A team of scientists has built the first roadmap of the white-matter microstructure in the human brain. The project, called CONNECT, was drawn up from leading research centers in the countries across Europe. Investigators met in Paris on Friday after three years of research to announce the conclusion of the project and present a paper on the findings. The new atlas of the white-matter microstructure combines...

Early Warning System For Struggling Young Readers

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online It is already known that if a 7-year-old is easily reading the "Harry Potter" books, he or she will be a strong reader later in life. It is also a given that if a 7-year-old is struggling with "The Cat in the Hat," that child will mostly likely struggle with reading from there on out. A new study from Stanford University demonstrates that brain scans can identify the neural differences between the two readers. These scans might...

Ponytail Physics Get Ig Nobel Prize

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online At a prestigious gala in Harvard University´s Sanders Theatre, University at Cambridge physics professor Raymond Goldstein was awarded an Ig Nobel prize for his work that explains the behavior and physical properties of a human ponytail, proving that even the scientific community relishes the chance to let its hair down. The Ig Nobel Awards were started by the satirical magazine the Annals of Improbable Research (AIR) in 1991 and...

New Human Brain Atlas Based on Gene Expression
2012-09-20 09:33:54

April Flowers for  redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A research team from the Allen Institute for Brain Science reports that human brains share a consistent genetic blueprint and possess enormous biochemical complexity. The findings, published in Nature, stem from the first in-depth and large-scale analysis of the vast data set publicly available in the Allen Human Brain Atlas. The Allen Human Brain Atlas fully integrates different kinds of data across different scales of brain...

You already know it's hard to balance your checkbook while simultaneously reflecting on your past. Now, investigators at the Stanford University School of Medicine – having done the equivalent of wire-tapping a hard-to-reach region of the brain – can tell us how this impasse arises. The researchers showed that groups of nerve cells in a structure called the posterior medial cortex, or PMC, are strongly activated during a recall task such as trying to remember whether you had...


Word of the Day
tesla
  • The unit of magnetic flux density in the International System of Units, equal to the magnitude of the magnetic field vector necessary to produce a force of one newton on a charge of one coulomb moving perpendicular to the direction of the magnetic field vector with a velocity of one meter per second. It is equivalent to one weber per square meter.
This word is named for Nikola Tesla, the inventor, engineer, and futurist.
