Journey Through the Brain: MIT Neurotech
Science & Tech  (tags: world, technology, study, society, scientists, science, research, news, interesting, humans, environment, brain, MIT Neurotech, neurotechnologies, Neuroscience, understanding )

- 25 days ago -
Editor's note: This is the first installment in a series about emerging neurotechnologies. Join a pilot class of 12 PhD students at MIT as we explore how neuroscience is revolutionizing our understanding of the brain.
Brain May 'Compensate' for Alzheimer's Damage
Science & Tech  (tags: science, Neuroscience, Health, Alzheimer's disease, research )

- 35 days ago -
The human brain may be able to compensate for some of the early changes seen in Alzheimer's disease, research in Nature Neuroscience shows.
Language, Brain and Neuroscience
Science & Tech  (tags: language, neuroscience, children, brain, humans, medicine, investigation, science, interesting, research )

Dr Jonathan O'Muircheartaigh, from King's College London, recommends initiating children in languages before the age of four when brain development is strongest. Read more at es.php
It's Possible To Smell The Fat In Food
Science & Tech  (tags: humans, research, Neuroscience, interesting, study )

- 270 days ago -
Previous research has suggested that we may be able to "taste" fat. And now, researchers at the Monell Chemical Senses Center have found evidence that we might be able to smell it, too.
Schizophrenia Linked to Abnormal Brain Waves
Science & Tech  (tags: Brain and cognitive sciences, Neuroscience, Picower Inst. for Learning & Memory, Schizophrenia, Calcineurin, Default mode network )

- 368 days ago -
Schizophrenia patients usually suffer from a breakdown of organized thought, often accompanied by delusions or hallucinations. For the first time, MIT neuroscientists have observed the neural activity that appears to produce this disordered thinking.
Nanoscale Neuronal Activity Measured for the First Time
Science & Tech  (tags: neuroscience, research )

- 371 days ago -
A new technique that allows scientists to measure the electrical activity in the communication junctions of the nervous systems has been developed by a researcher at Queen Mary University of London.
Dogs Have Feelings Too, Brain Scans Prove It
Science & Tech  (tags: dogs, brain scans, neuroscience, study, technology, feelings, humans )

- 376 days ago -
Advances in neuroscience stand to revolutionize the way society views dogs. Together with his adopted black terrier, neuroscientist Gregory Berns of Emory University has begun to run magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans on canines.
Neuroscience Needs Its Einstein

- 559 days ago -
New mapping studies won't help us understand the brain-mind connection until we start thinking differently
Researchers Show That Brain Cells Hold Memories
Science & Tech  (tags: Neuroscience, new study, memories, brain cells )

- 936 days ago -
Memory engrams - traces of memory, often aroused by external stimuli, like a smell - do reside in brain cells, say researchers from MIT and Stanford.
Why Risk Is Sexier Than Security
Science & Tech  (tags: gambling, neuroscience, lifestyle )

- 1110 days ago -
Your frontal lobe may not be as dependable as you would hope when it comes to high-stakes entertainment. Some doctors believe the drug people crave the most is adrenalin, and that feeling they get when risk is pounding through their veins.
Sleeping Protects Memories From Corruption
Science & Tech  (tags: brain, behavior, memory, Neuroscience, sleep, science )

- 1362 days ago -
Replaying memories while people are awake leaves their memories subject to tinkering. But reactivating memories during sleep protects them from interference, researchers in Germany and Switzerland report online January 23 in Nature Neuroscience.
The World Within: How the Autistic Brain Processes Sound
Science & Tech  (tags: autism, Neuroscience )

- 1390 days ago -
Dr. Welsh's breakthrough research suggests individuals with autism hear the world at a slower rate. Knowing this could lead to better treatments.
Blind People Perceive Touch Faster Than Those With Sight
Science & Tech  (tags: blind, touch, tactile, information, vision, neuroscience )

- 1452 days ago -
People who are blind from birth are able to detect tactile information faster than people with normal vision, according to a study in the Oct. 27 issue of the Journal of Neuroscience.
Nanotubes Help Cells Pass Messages
Science & Tech  (tags: science, neuroscience, cells, scientists, study, discovery )

- 1489 days ago -
Researchers have discovered a means of cell communication that may illuminate events ranging from embryo development to brain activity.
