- 2075 days ago -
NEW YORK - Harvard scientists say they have created stems cells for 10 genetic disorders, which will allow researchers to watch the diseases develop in a lab dish.
Changes in Gray Matter Induced By Learning--Revisited
Science & Tech  (tags: Neuroscience, brain, plasticity, gray matter, change, cortex, learning )

- 2092 days ago -
While traditional research has focussed on functional forms of neuroplasticity, current theoretically based concepts suggest that structural cortical plasticity in adult brains plays a crucial role in adaptation to environmental changes and disease.
Left Hemisphere Specialization for Oro-Facial Movements of Learned Vocal Signals By Captive Chimpanzees
Science & Tech  (tags: chimpanzee, brain, lateralization, speech, language, origin, culture, pan )

- 2117 days ago -
The left hemisphere of the human brain is dominant in the production of speech and signed language. Whether similar lateralization of function for communicative signal production is present in other primates remains a topic of considerable debate.
The Colorful World of Synesthesia Why Some People Hear Colors or Taste Sounds
Science & Tech  (tags: investigation, mind, brain, humans, "cross-wiring" between areas of the brai, diffusion tensor imaging, neural pattern )

- 2137 days ago -
People with synesthesia experience a "blending" of their senses when they see, smell, taste, touch or hear. Such people have specially wired brains, so that when something stimulates one of the five senses, another sense also responds.
The Hidden Talents of the Lowly Sea Cucumber
Science & Tech  (tags: research, science, study, habitat, undersea creatures, Sea Cucumber, human, brain, diseases, health, medicine, interesting, medical technologies )

- 2206 days ago -
Sea cucumbers have been considered both a culinary delicacy and a homeopathic panacea in Southeast Asia.Recently, scientists have found in the humble sea cuke an unlikely muse for some exciting new medical technologies.
Growth Hormone Found to Have New Role in Development of Brain's Smell Center
Science & Tech  (tags: scientists, research, study, discovery, humans, axon, brain, cell, chemical, chemoattractant, hormone, molecules, nerve, neurones, odour, olfactory, receptor )

- 2210 days ago -
A Neuroscientist and his colleagues have now found that the hormone, insulin-like growth factor (IGF) plays a critical role in setting up the connections between chemical detectors in the nose and the brain's olfactory centers.
Brain Researcher Shedding Light on Learning, Memory

- 2210 days ago -
'You form a basis to not only understand how biology works,but also how therapeutic strategies should be developed.It's a very systematic,large-scale effort to understand the brain.'One goal is understanding biology gone wrong,as it does in Alzheimer's.'
How Diesel Exhaust Affects Your Brain
Science & Tech  (tags: biodiesel, brain, cars, diesel, emissions, exhaust, nanoparticles, particulates, pollution, research, sciencediscovery )

- 2210 days ago -
As if it wasn't bad enough that particulate matter from diesel exhaust causes a range of respiratory problems including 15,000 premature deaths each year, new research shows that even short-term exposure to diesel exhaust can affect brain function.
Scientists Identify Language Feature Unique to Human Brain
Science & Tech  (tags: science, technology, research, humans, chimpanzees, brain, language, evolution, Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) )

- 2213 days ago -
The study marks the first use of diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), a non-invasive imaging technique,to compare human brain structures to those of chimpanzees, our closest living relative.
Brain Division Could Help Explain Stereotyping, Religious Conflict and Racism
Science & Tech  (tags: research, science, study, investigation, humans, society, neuroscience, brain, social skills, racism, stereotyping, religious conflict )

- 2219 days ago -
How our brain handles the question of someone's attitude to anything,from traffic jams to art,depends on how we feel we relate to them as a person.However this research pans out,there is hope for creating stronger empathy with people unlike ourselves.
Tiny Brain-Like Computer Created
Science & Tech  (tags: technology, computer, brain )

- 2227 days ago -
The most powerful computer known is the brain, and now scientists have designed a machine just a few molecules large that mimics how the brain works.
Test Shows Possibility to See What Others Do
Science & Tech  (tags: test, brain, imaging, decode, signals )

- 2231 days ago -
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Brain imaging may make it possible to someday see what others are seeing, U.S. researchers reported on Wednesday. Such a device would make it possible to decode brain signals and track attention. It may even be possible to "see"
Picture This: Scientists Could Take Photos of Your Memories and Dreams | the Daily Mail
Science & Tech  (tags: science, imagination, dreams, subconscious, memory, discovery, brain, technology, innovation, picture, machine )

- 2231 days ago -
Scientists have developed a mind-reading technique which could one day allow them to take pictures of memories and dreams. By comparing brain activity scans, they were able to correctly predict which of 120 pictures someone was focusing on in 90 percent
