Grey matter matters when measuring our tolerance of risk
There is a link between our brain structure and our tolerance of risk, new research suggests. View News Article (2014-09-12)


Moderate levels of secondhand smoke deliver nicotine to the brain
Exposure to secondhand smoke, such as a person can get by riding in an enclosed car while someone else smokes, has a direct, measurable impact on the brain-and the effect is similar to what happens in the brain of the person doing the smoking. View News Article (2011-05-03)


Western researchers can predict future actions from human brain activity
Bringing the real world into the brain scanner, researchers at The University of Western Ontario from The Centre for Brain and Mind (http://www.uwo.ca/its/brain/) can now determine the action a person was planning, mere moments before that action is actually executed.  View News Article (2011-06-30)


Human Brain Connectivity Mapping
The unique connectivity pattern of a brain region determines the type of information available to it, and hence influences its function. Defining these patterns enhances our knowledge of human brain architecture and function. Non-invasive in vivo definition of brain connectivity patterns complements functional imaging and provides new understanding of disorders associated with developmental or...

Better understanding of mapmaking in the brain
"Grid cells," which help the brain map locations, have been found for the first time outside of the medial entorhinal cortex in the rat brain, according to new research from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). View News Article (2010-08-10)


Mechanism Behind Stuttering Revealed (p 380)
Stuttering is caused by a structural abnormality in the left hemisphere of the brain, according to an article in this week's LANCET. Dr Martin Sommer and colleagues from the Universities of Hamburg and Göttingen in Germany report that persistent developmental stuttering results from a disconnection of speech-related areas in the cortex. Persistent developmental stuttering affects 1% of... View News Article (2002-07-31)


Deathstalker scorpion venom could improve gene therapy for brain cancer
An ingredient in the venom of the "deathstalker" scorpion could help gene therapy become an effective treatment for brain cancer, scientists are reporting.  View News Article (2010-08-12)


Searching for causes of neural disconnection in schizophrenia
Dendritic spines act as hubs for communication between nerve cells. Reductions in spines may contribute to a lack of coordination in activity between brain regions. View News Article (2010-07-07)


Poetry is like music to the mind, scientists prove
New brain imaging technology is helping researchers to bridge the gap between art and science by mapping the different ways in which the brain responds to poetry and prose. View News Article (2013-10-10)


Mass spectrometer detection of 10 protein spots after acute high-altitude HBI
Hypobaric hypoxia can cause severe brain damage and mitochondrial dysfunction, and is involved in hypoxic brain injury. View News Article (2014-01-02)
