Thanks to scientists who have ventured outside the laboratory, we have learned that tight-knit groups of females experience synchronized menstrual periods over time, that cohesive groups engaged in decision-making discount dissenting viewpoints in the interests of consensus, and that couples who...
Longtime WWE announcer Jim Ross's wife, Jan, died from a traumatic brain injury following a scooter accident, TMZ reports.
People who are overweight and obese with type 2 diabetes may have a greater risk of developing more severe brain abnormalities and cognition complications.
The human brain is an enigma wrapped in a skull, but the field of neuroscience is beginning to unravel its secrets. What we learn could be used for good – such as how to develop prosthetic limbs and wheelchairs that can be controlled directly by a patient's thoughts – or bad, like the possibility of mind-controlled weaponry.

Justin has Nier: Automata on the brain after finishing multiple playthroughs of its unique sci-fi story. But the hosts keep spoiler talk to a minimum, don't worry! And that's just the start. Also on the plate: Call of Duty: WWII, Prey, and our favorite side characters. Enjoy the show!
We're just scratching the surface.
6-year-old Nate Butkus' "Show About Science" features eminent brains from around the world of science
People with Type 2 diabetes had brain changes in areas related to memory and planning.
Is the brain an entity? Given materialism, I can't see how it is. It is a composite of things we call a brain. But who are we? Brains? But we can't be brains, we can only be composites of things we call brains, needing an entity to do the "calling", as it were. Show More Summary
You really can get on the same wavelength as someone else: In a new study, the brain waves of high school students synced up when they were highly engaged during a biology class.
WWE legend Jim Ross' wife, Jan Ross, suffered a traumatic brain injury... the official cause of death after she was struck from behind by another car while riding her Vespa home. The Oklahoma Office of the Chief Medical Examiner tells TMZ Sports…
(New Jersey Institute of Technology) S. R. Nandakumar, a graduate student in electrical engineering, has won a coveted IBM Ph.D. fellowship to support his work on computer systems that mimic the architecture of the human brain.
An Italian neurosurgeon claims he will be able to 'wake up' patients who have had their brains cryogenically frozen and give them new bodies within three years, according to the Telegraph. Read moreng Blogs | Comments
(University of California - Davis) A multi-university study led by a neuroscientist at UC Davis aims to vastly deepen understanding by developing a computer model of how the brain forms, stores and retrieves complex memories. The goal is that the model will have human-like abilities to remember, understand and learn from events.
First came transparent brain tissue, then mostly transparent mice. Now, researchers at Caltech have applied a tissue-clearing technique to make bones see-through. The process provides valuable insight into how stem cells function inside...Show More Summary
Neuroscientist Dean Buonomano argues our brains are "constantly tracking the passage of time, whether it's circadian rhythms that tell us when to go to sleep, or microsecond calculations that allow us to the hear the difference between 'They gave her cat-food' and 'They gave her cat food.' In an interview with Science of Us, Buonomano […]
The day after I told Nell she had seven metastases to her brain, she sent me flowers. She was my patient; I was her oncologist. I had met her one year prior, when she was well into her cancer journey, stage IV breast cancer at diagnosis. I took over from her current oncologist, who was […]
They say that “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.” But this is definitely not true of the vagus nerve, which wanders from the stomach to the brain, passing through the heart, esophagus and lungs along the way. A new study offers fresh support for an intriguing theory about the vagus nerve’s...
(The Zuckerman Institute at Columbia University) Columbia scientists have identified a gene that allows neurons that release serotonin to evenly spread their branches throughout the brain. Without this gene, these branches become entangled, leading to haphazard serotonin distribution, and signs of depression in mice. Show More Summary
