For Harvard neurobiologist Jeff Lichtman, the question hasn’t been whether scientists will ever understand the brain, but how closely they’ll have to look before they do. Led by Lichtman, the Jeremy R. Knowles Professor of Molecular and Cellular Biology and...
One of the ways I’ve been thinking about the role mobile can play in design is thinking about how our brains work, and don’t. It came out of both mobile and the recent cognitive science for learning workshop I gave at the recent DevLearn. This applies more broadly to performance support in general, so I […]
Liv and Detective Babineaux investigate the death of a hard-partying frat boy in this week’s iZOMBIE. Liv eats his brains and then attends a frat party in an attempt to search for clues. But since she’s taken on the victim’s personality, she ends up dominating at the beer pong table and playing childish pranks on […]
This post by Chas Smith originally appeared on Fatherly: An idea is a hell of a thing, floating across the brain's superior temporal gyrus, seemingly limitless. We close our eyes and feel the burn of pure genius and bask in its warmth. Show More Summary
Why Ben Carson’s success as a neurosurgeon doesn’t translate to politics
The Spaceflight Effects on Neurocognitive Performance: Extent, Longevity, and Neural Bases (NeuroMapping) study is examining changes in both brain structure and function and determining how long it takes to recover after returning from space.
October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month. At Texas Right to Life, individuals with Down syndrome have a special place in our hearts. We work tirelessly to ensure that all Lives – regardless of the conditions or prognoses that accompany them – are respected. We fight for them every day. So we were touched when we […]
Each person's brain activity, or "connectivity profile," may be as unique as a set of fingerprints, YaleNews reports—and could prove useful in IDing individuals, assessing intelligence, and predicting future success on certain tasks. In a study published Monday in Nature Neuroscience, scientists reviewed fMRI scans for 126 patients in...
Neurologists have developed methods to produce unique profiles from an individual's brain activity
In a bombshell investigation into presidential candidate Ben Carson‘s medical career, RadarOnline.com exclusively learned that the now-retired doctor was accused of butchering patients’ brains during surgery and even mistakenly leaving… READ ON
A team of UCLA scientists has found that brain areas linked to social behaviors are both underdeveloped and insufficiently networked in youths with high functioning autism spectrum disorder (ASD) compared to study participants without ASD.
A new six-episode series on PBS tells the story of the brain, from how we perceive reality to the future of brain-technology integration.
Nootrobox wants to change the sketchy reputation associated with brain-boosting supplements. The startup, founded by 20-somethings Michael Brandt and Geoffrey Woo, makes a variety of nootropics — cognitive performance supplements often...Show More Summary
This is an ode to your visual cortex. It’s a little unsung hero that sits, unassuming, at the back of your brain. It’s small — almost hidden — but it dominates your senses and creates the world around you. And it’s hungry. You see, your visual cortex is fast. Show More Summary
Like most people, I’ve always felt the Ferrari F12berlinetta (I didn’t forget a space, that’s how they like the name) was a little too tame. I mean, only 740 HP? Acceleration that only slams your brains mostly out the back of your head? We deserve more. Happily, Ferrari listened, and now we have the Ferrari F12tdf. Read more...
