Latest Thalamus Stories
A new study led by NYU Langone Medical Center and funded by the National Institutes of Health has found that just a few nerve cells in the brain may control the switch between internal thoughts and external distractions.
It has long been known that if you take away once sense from a person, the other four will become more finely tuned. A new study, published in Neuron, reveals that minimizing a person's sight for as little as a week may help improve the brain's ability to process hearing.
Simulated blindness gives adult mice sharper hearing, according to a study published today by University of Maryland and Johns Hopkins University scientists. College
According to a new study, the connection between the thalamus – a deep brain structure critical to sensory and motor functions – and the brain’s outer layer known as the cerebral cortex is impaired in children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD).
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) measurements of atrophy in an important area of the brain are an accurate predictor of multiple sclerosis (MS).
Magnetic resonance imaging measurements of atrophy in an important area of the brain are an accurate predictor of multiple sclerosis (MS), according to a new study published online Tuesday, April
A growing body of research by multiple sclerosis (MS) investigators at the University at Buffalo and international partners is providing powerful new evidence that the brain’s gray matter reflects important changes in the disease that could allow clinicians to diagnose earlier and to better monitor and predict how the disease will progress.
Inside the brains of mice and men alike, a relatively big football-shaped region called the thalamus acts like a switchboard, providing the prefrontal cortex, the part that does abstract thinking and decision-making, with most of its information.
In the brains of humans and non-human primates, over 100 billion nerve cells build up complicated neural circuits and produce higher brain functions.
