The sound of mother’s voice triggers kids’ brain activity. Children can easily recognize mother’s voice as their brain responds differently to unfamiliar voice. However Stanford University School of Medicine has found a contrasting fact, while researching on children with autism. Researchers have discovered that the brain response to mom’s voice greatly differs in children with autism. The unique brain response to mother’s tune is highly diminished for such kids. Furthermore,
A new discovery has found way for a better understanding of brain diseases. The method employs high-resolution method to analyze single cells. The finding is the work of a team of researchers under the aegis of the Medical Center at the University of Freiburg. Consequent upon this, researchers have mapped the brain’s own immune systems in human as well as mice. The mapping is entirely new from the ones in
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.
