Brain Mysteries

Clues emerge to genetic architecture of cognitive abilities in children (8/20/2014)

A large new genetic study in thousands of children and adolescents offers early glimpses of the overall patterns and connections among cognitive abilities such as language reasoning, reading skill and types of memory. The findings may lead to new tools in understanding human cognitive development and neuropsychiatric disorders. ...> Full Article


Testosterone in healthy men increases their brains' response to threat (8/20/2014)

Testosterone, a steroid hormone, is well known to contribute to aggressive behavior in males, but the neural circuits through which testosterone exerts these effects have not been clear. ...> Full Article


Selective verbal memory impairment due to left fornical crus injury after IVH (8/20/2014)

Dr. Sung Ho Jang and co-workers from College of Medicine, Yeungnam University, Republic of Korea, using DTT, report on a male patient, 33 years old, who showed selective verbal memory impairment due to left fornical crus injury following intraventricular hemorrhage. ...> Full Article


Is empathy in humans and apes actually different? (8/19/2014)

Is empathy in humans and apes actually different?Whether or not humans are the only empathic beings is still under debate. In a new study, researchers directly compared the 'yawn contagion' effect between humans and bonobos -- our closest evolutionary cousins. By doing so they were able to directly compare the empathic abilities of ourselves with another species, and found that a close relationship between individuals is more important to their empathic response than the fact that individuals might be from the same species. ...> Full Article


Can fiction stories make us more empathetic? (8/19/2014)

Raymond Mar, a psychologist at York University in Canada, discussed how exposure to narrative fiction may improve our ability to understand what other people are thinking or feeling in his session at the American Psychological Association's 122nd Annual Convention. ...> Full Article


Bioengineers create functional 3-D brain-like tissue (8/18/2014)

Bioengineers create functional 3-D brain-like tissueBioengineers have created three-dimensional brain-like tissue that functions like and has structural features similar to tissue in the rat brain and that can be kept alive in the lab for more than two months. The tissue could provide a superior model for studying normal brain function as well as injury and disease, and could assist in the development of new treatments for brain dysfunction. ...> Full Article


Want to kill creativity of women in teams? Fire up the competition (8/18/2014)

Want to kill creativity of women in teams? Fire up the competitionWomen tend to outperform men when it comes to collaboration and creativity in small working groups, but force teams to go head to head in highly competitive environments and the benefits of a female approach are soon reversed, suggests new research from Washington University in St. Louis. ...> Full Article


Regular marijuana use bad for teens' brains (8/17/2014)

Frequent marijuana use can have a significant negative effect on the brains of teenagers and young adults, including cognitive decline, poor attention and memory, and decreased IQ, according to psychologists discussing public health implications of marijuana legalization at the American Psychological Association's 122nd Annual Convention. ...> Full Article


Expecting to teach enhances learning, recall (8/17/2014)

Expecting to teach enhances learning, recallPeople learn better and recall more when given the impression that they will soon have to teach newly acquired material to someone else, suggests new research from Washington University in St. Louis. ...> Full Article


Scientists unravel mystery of brain cell growth (8/17/2014)

Scientists unravel mystery of brain cell growthDana-Farber scientists and international colleagues have discovered how a single protein can exert both a push and a pull force to nudge a neuron in the desired direction, helping neurons navigate to their assigned places in the developing brain. ...> Full Article


Adult myelination -- Wrapping up neuronal plasticity (8/16/2014)

The adult CNS is remarkably adaptable -- it retains the ability to generate and integrate new cells, and remodel pre-existing circuits. Intense research over the last 25 years has provided critical insight into the cell generation and differentiation potential of endogenous neural stem and progenitor cells, and has described three core CNS plasticity mechanisms. ...> Full Article


Notch developmental pathway regulates fear memory formation (8/16/2014)

Researchers at Yerkes National Primate Research Center, Emory University, have learned that the molecule Notch, critical in many processes during embryonic development, is also involved in fear memory formation. ...> Full Article


Part of the brain stays 'youthful' into older age (8/16/2014)

At least one part of the human brain may be able to process information the same way in older age as it does in the prime of life, according to new research conducted at the University of Adelaide. ...> Full Article


Relay strategies combined with axon regeneration: A promising approach to restore spinal cord injury (8/15/2014)

Relay strategies combined with axon regeneration: A promising approach to restore spinal cord injuryFor decades, numerous investigations have only focused on axon regeneration to restore function after traumatic spinal cord injury, as interrupted neuronal pathways have to be reconnected for sensorimotor and autonomic recovery to occur. Experimental approaches have ranged from drug delivery and cell transplantation to genetic manipulations. ...> Full Article


Just one simple question can identify narcissistic people (8/15/2014)

Scientists have developed and validated a new method to identify which people are narcissistic: just ask them. ...> Full Article
