Neuroimaging Reveals Hidden Communication Between Brain Layers During Reading

Previously hidden connections between brain layers during reading have been identified in a neuroimaging study[1] by researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics and the Donders Institute at Radboud University. How is a language represented in the brain? This question is challenging, as language involves many regions throughout the brain that interact in a […]

Technique Can Image Individual Proteins Within Synapses

Our brains contain millions of synapses — the connections that transmit messages from neuron to neuron. Within these synapses are hundreds of different proteins, and dysfunction of these proteins can lead to conditions such as schizophrenia and autism. Researchers at MIT and the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT have now devised a new way […]

What Neuroscientists Are Learning About Our Brains By Launching Themselves Into Zero Gravity Flight

More than 500 people have travelled into space to date and, while we know a little about how life without gravity affects our physical health, we know almost nothing about how it affects our minds. So, my colleagues and I have been launching ourselves, rigs of equipment and our participants into “zero gravity flight” to […]
