Medicine is still using a brain map created in the early 1900s, but this new version adds almost 100 new regions.
Scientists have mapped the structural changes that occur in teenagers' brains as they develop, showing how these changes may help explain why the first signs of mental health problems often arise during late adolescence. In a study published...Show More Summary
Beta rhythms, or waves of brain activity with an approximately 20 Hz frequency, accompany vital fundamental behaviors such as attention, sensation and motion and are associated with some disorders such as Parkinson's disease. Scientists...Show More Summary
MADISON -- Serotonin is best known for eliciting feelings of happiness in the human brain, but scientists at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have found the hormone plays a role in milk production in dairy cows -- and may have health implications for breastfeeding women. read more
There’s really not too much to this, but if you need a break from the world or a little time-out on brain activity, just watch this totally silly video of silicone being poured over Lego bricks. It’s stupid but it’s kind of, sort of, fun to see the layers of goo neatly pile up until they collapse all over each other. Show More Summary

Editing, pruning and strengthening of neuron connections in adolescent brains makes for sleeker performance – but errors may cause schizophrenia
Undergoing the RNC Convention I felt like I was witnessing an Orgy of the Reptilian Brain. Words that come to mind are the following: Venom; hatred; anger; denial (not a word spoken about the most important issue of our time, climate...Show More Summary
Researchers comparing mouse and macaque brains have found evidence of an evolutionary universal brain structure in mammals that enables comparisons of cortical networks between species. A new study from a researcher at the University of Notre Dame could provide insights into brain disorders such as Alzheimer's and schizophrenia.

The more intellectually stimulating and social a person's job is, the better for their aging brain, a new study suggests
A new study pinpoints when melanoma cells metastasize in the brain months before they develop into fatal tumors. According to the research, micro-tumor cells hijack astrogliosis, the brain's natural response to damage or injury, to support metastatic growth. This knowledge may lead to the detection of brain cancer in its first stages and permit early intervention.
The way that skull shape changed as Neanderthals grew up suggests that they were just as smart as us, although it's still a contentious finding
The Post’s former classical music critic thought he was having a migraine, but it turned into a terrifying ordeal.
by Jonathan Blaustein Believe it or not, in the last four days, three different people lectured me about the relationship between the amygdala and the hippocampus, two powerful, oppositional parts of the brain. (And yes, that is definitely the longest opening sentence in this column’s history.) But it’s also true. Under pressure, the primal amygdala, […]
The accumulation of ?-Amyloid (??) and tau proteins in the brain is hallmark pathology for Alzheimer disease. Recently developed positron emission tomography (PET) tracers, including [18F]-AV-1451, bind to tau in neurofibrillary tangles in the brain. Show More Summary
