Human ancestors living in East Africa 2 million years ago weren't a steak-and-potatoes crowd. But they had a serious hankering for gazelle meat and antelope brains, fossils discovered in Kenya indicate.
Study Links Brain and White-Collar Crime
Science & Tech  (tags: scientists, psychological tests, MRI, brains, brain structure, white-collar criminals, higher "execttive" cognitive functions, correlation not causation supported )

- 2983 days ago -
People who commit "white collar" crime such as credit-card fraud and computer hacking have been found to have brains that are structurally different from the brains of non-criminals with similar backgrounds, scientists have found.

The Male Brain -- How It's Wired
Science & Tech  (tags: men, brains, science, studies )

- 3551 days ago -
( -- The more science learns about how men are different from us (right down to the structure of their brains), the more we find ourselves hoping it will finally explain some age-old mysteries. For instance:
Scientists Discover a Way to Reverse Memory Loss in 'Accidental Breakthrough'
Science & Tech  (tags: scientists, research, study, reverse memory loss, brains, humans )

- 4102 days ago -
Scientists have stumbled on a world first in helping a man improve his memory. They were experimenting with deep-brain stimulation in an attempt to curb the appetite of a 30st patient who suffered from a lifelong obesity problem. Electrodes
Methylating the Mind
Science & Tech  (tags: humans, brains, DNA methylation, genes, epigenetics, genetic disorders )

- 4156 days ago -
Methylation patterns differed by brain region, indicating that epigenetics helps divide up the brain's functions. By understanding normal methylation, researchers can look at methylation gone wrong, possibly autism, depression, bipolar disease, etc.
Do Our Brains Work Like Google?
Science & Tech  (tags: Google, humans, brains, search algorithm, PageRank, patent, information, technology )

- 4158 days ago -
GOOGLE's patented and powerful search algorithm, PageRank, may mimic the way the human brain retrieves information. Our memory for words can be modeled as a network in which each point represents a different word, with each linked to words related to it.
Brain Pattern Linked To Risk of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Mental Health Articles
Science & Tech  (tags: humans, OCD, brains, brain scans, risk, disorder )

- 4168 days ago -
Individuals with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and their close family members have distinctive patterns in their brain structure. This is the first time that scientists have associated an anatomical trait with familial risk for the disorder.
