Latest Neurophysiology Stories
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.
Although sleep problems persist among many American children, parents can make a difference by setting boundaries around electronics use, enforcing rules and setting a good example.
The movement-based part of an insomniac’s brain tends to be more active and demonstrate greater neuroplasticity than the same region in good sleepers, researchers from Johns Hopkins Medical Institution report in the March issue of the journal Sleep.
The Non-24 Share More Campaign aims to educate totally blind people living with the disorder and their families through its health and wellness podcast series WASHINGTON, Feb.

Pulling an "all-nighter" before a big test is practically a rite of passage in college. Usually, it's no problem: You stay up all night, take the test, and then crash, rapidly catching up on lost sleep. But as we age, sleep patterns change, and our ability to recoup lost sleep diminishes.
Researchers at Oxford University have figured out which nerve cells in the brain alert us to the fact that it is time to sleep. These nerve cells, or neurons, fire when we are tired and cool down once we are rested.
Watching video of simple tasks before carrying them out may boost the brain's structure, or plasticity, and increase motor skills.
TACOMA, Wash., Feb. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Noted neuroscientist Dr. Rodolfo Llinas and colleagues have published an article reporting that Revalesio's RNS60 improves synaptic transmission.
Americans are no strangers to sleep related problems, but a new survey by Replacement-Mattress.com has shed some light on what is actually happening: the survey has found that 38% of the population
Electrooculography, sometimes shortened to EOG, is the tracing of electricity used for operation of the retina in different phases, specifically the resting potential. The results are recorded on an electrooculogram. These are interpreted for opthalmological diagnosis and in recording eye movements. Eye movement measurements: Usually, pairs of electrodes are placed either above and below the eye or to the left and right of the eye. If the eye is moved from the center position towards one...
