Yoga and breathing training programs can help children with ADHD to focus their attention, a new study reports.
While being treated fairly in a workplace setting is important, distinctive treatment, where a person’s skills and qualities are recognized, also provides a sense of value while reinforcing a person’s sense of inclusion. Distinctive treatment also boos…
Inspired by techniques to train deep neural networks, researchers have proposed a new hypothesis of dreaming. The hypothesis suggests the strangeness of our dreams may help our brains better generalize our day-to-day experiences.
A new micro-grid recording device allowed researchers to measure hippocampal activity in epileptic patients. They found brain waves travel back and forth across the brain structure, integrating messages from different areas of the brain.
NapA, a protein associated with the peptidoglycan of Borrelia burgdorferi, plays an amplifying role in causing inflammation in Lyme disease associated arthritis.
A new study reveals the unique “time compression” effect of virtual reality technology.
A new large-scale study links smoking and cardiovascular disease to an increased risk of developing dementia. Smoking and cardiovascular disease impact memory and learning throughout adulthood, starting at age 18. Researchers say smoking has the bigges…
Researchers have identified three areas of the posterior cerebral cortex that bridge the brain’s perception and memory systems.
Students who completed a six-week stress-management program that exclusively focused on petting a therapy dog showed marked improvements in numerous cognitive and thinking skills.
Regulatory epigenetic changes to genomic regions in the brain are essential for human cognition and mental health.
A link has been identified between psychosis and a genetic change that alters the immune system in the brain. Researchers found people with psychosis associated with bipolar disorder had decreased expression of GRK3. This led to an increased amount of …
Combining αGITR antibodies with ICBs resulted in stronger survival benefits in mouse models of human glioblastoma brain cancer.
Neurological symptoms associated with COVID-19, from losing the sense of smell to stroke, are linked to a six-fold higher risk of dying as a result of coronavirus.
Neuroimaging revealed serotonin transporter levels increased in people who were in recovery from depression following cognitive behavioral therapy.
Researchers have identified several novel functional mechanisms related to the inner hair cells of the ear. The findings may upend numerous longstanding theories about the working anatomical organization and workings of the ear, as well as provide new …
Fruit flies may use dopamine to learn in similar ways to humans.
Soccer players who feel anxious at the thought of kicking a penalty kick and who miss the goal show more activity in the prefrontal cortex. Overthinking the shot, researchers say, could play a role in missing a goal.
A newly developed artificial intelligence algorithm can accurately and reliably assess unconsciousness in patients under anesthesia based on brain activity.
Our concepts of people, objects, and events are composed of sensory impressions and actions associated with them, in addition to abstract symbol-like features.
Students who embarked on online learning went to bed, on average, thirty minutes later than they did while entered into in-person learning. They also slept less efficiently and napped more during the day.
