New circumstances behind better vision have been uncovered

Its research, which was published in the journal Nature Communications. A group of neuroscientists have found a novel connection between brain architecture and behaviour. Professors at NYU’s Center for Neural Science and Department of Psychology Jonathan Winawer and Marisa Carrasco, Himmelberg’s co-authors on the Nature Communications article, aimed to provide light on the relationship between […]

The human brain’s language areas have distinct connections

When compared to chimp brains, our brain’s pattern of connections between language areas has expanded more than previously thought. Neuroscientists now understand how our brain evolved into a language-ready brain. For years, researchers have been intrigued by what in the brain could have enabled this extraordinary ability. However, until now, their focus has been primarily […]

A certain virus may cause cancer, finds a study

The Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) has been discovered by Indian researchers to be capable of infecting neuronal cells and altering the biomolecules of fatty acids, carbohydrates, and protein building blocks. In order to investigate the potential effects of a cancer-causing virus on brain cells, a research team from the Indian Institute Of Technology(IIT) Indore, India, used […]

Epilepsy is made worse by restricting neuronal energy

Researchers from the University of Geneva (UNIGE) and the EPFL investigated whether they could treat epilepsy and neuronal hyperactivity by lowering the energy provided to and required for the proper functioning of neurons. Around 50 million people worldwide suffer from epilepsy, a chronic noncommunicable brain condition. Epilepsy is characterised by recurring seizures that are brought […]
