Visual Learners Convert Words to Pictures in the Brain And Vice Versa, Says Penn Psychology Study
A University of Pennsylvania psychology study, using functional magnetic resonance imaging technology to scan the brain, reveals that people who consider themselves visual learners, as opposed to verbal learners, have a tendency to convert linguistically presented information into a visual mental representation. View News Article (2009-03-25)


Scientists zero in on memory-related proteins at the core of Alzheimer's disease

Understanding how neurons shape memories of smells
In a study that helps to deconstruct how olfaction is encoded in the brain, neuroscientists at University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have identified a type of neuron that appears to help tune, amplify and dampen neuronal responses to chemosensory inputs from the nasal cavity. View News Article (2015-03-10)


What can magnetic resonance tractography teach us about human brain anatomy?
Magnetic resonance tractography (MRT) is a valuable, noninvasive imaging tool for studying human brain anatomy and, as MRT methods and technologies advance, has the potential to yield new and illuminating information on brain activity and connectivity. View News Article (2011-09-27)
