Found: Brain structure that controls our behavior

Solving problems, planning one’s own actions, controlling emotions — these executive functions are fundamental processes for controlling our behavior. Despite numerous indications, there has not yet been any clear evidence to support which brain areas process these abilities. A study has now succeeded in identifying the crucial region — with the help of a unique… Read More »

Optical imaging technology may help surgeons better treat cancer, brain diseases

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – A new tool for medical professionals may help shed more light on tumors in the body and how the brain operates. Purdue University researchers created technology that uses optical imaging to better help surgeons map out tumors in the body and help them understand how certain diseases affect activity in the brain.… Read More »

Brain Plaques Signal Alzheimer’s Even Before Other Symptoms Emerge: Study

MONDAY, April 13, 2020 — Even before symptoms develop, the brains of people with early Alzheimer’s disease have high levels of amyloid protein plaques, a new study reveals. Those levels in older adults with no dementia symptoms are associated with a family history of disease, lower scores on thinking/memory tests, and declines in daily mental… Read More »

It’s now or never: Visual events have 100 milliseconds to hit brain target or go unnoticed

Researchers at the National Eye Institute (NEI) have defined a crucial window of time that mice need to key in on visual events. As the brain processes visual information, an evolutionarily conserved region known as the superior colliculus notifies other regions of the brain that an event has occurred. Inhibiting this brain region during a… Read More »

Device brings silicon computing power to brain research and prosthetics

Researchers at Stanford University have developed a new device for connecting the brain directly to silicon-based technologies. While brain-machine interface devices already exist — and are used for prosthetics, disease treatment and brain research — this latest device can record more data while being less intrusive than existing options. “Nobody has taken these 2D silicon… Read More »
