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)
