What makes humans narrowly more evolved than chimpanzees and bonobos, our closest nonhuman primates, despite their similar genetic makeup? There are evident behavioral and cognitive differences. Thus, scientists are curious about learning this mysterious property of humanness since the inception of brain research. In this space a new development holds potential to make strides. Researchers at the Salk Institute jointly with researchers at the anthropology department of UC, San Diego
All your life, you must be traveling to several places. But, what makes your brain remember only a few of them? Ever wondered? Scientists at Columbia University find that a certain type of cells in our brain decide which places are important. Thus, helping us remember the route only to these locations. As a result, the scientists feel that this breakthrough could also help them find answers to psychiatric disease
Intracerebral hemorrhage or ICH, most commonly known as cerebral bleed, occurs within the brain tissue and is a kind of intracranial bleed within the ventricles or brain tissue. Common symptoms include high blood pressure, low cholesterol, vomiting, weakness, one-sided headache, neck stiffness, and decreased level of consciousness. The main causes of brain hemorrhage are arteriovenous malformations, brain trauma, brain tumor, and aneurysms. Brain Bleeding Could Be Stopped With the Drug
A recent research study by New University of California, Berkeley shows that there are two different ways in which temporal predictions are made inside the human brain. Those depend on the different parts of the brain based on the immediate task. Thus the research shows that our timing is not a unified process. Be it in sports, music, or speech, there are two ways in which the human brain functions.
