Breaking research shows how the brains of blind people are naturally rewired to compensate for the lack of visual input, boosting the remaining senses.
IF THIS IS TRUE, I PREDICT HOLLYWOOD WILL GROSSLY MISUSE IT:Brain scans can predict how much money movies will make.
Stories are more powerful than we give them credit for. We don’t remember sequences of events too well, but assemble those same elements in a particular order, interpret them through the lens of a narrative, and suddenly, our brains take notice. Show More Summary

For anyone who finds reading maps or asking for directions troublesome, GPS might seem like a godsend – that is, until it leads you to the middle of nowhere thanks to a satellite error. However, apart from occasionally leading drivers...Show More Summary
Magnetic model could help explain how memories are stored and retrieved
“We fall into this trap that if kids are at their desks with their heads down and are silent and writing, we think they are learning. But what we have found is that the active time used to energize your brain makes all those still moments better,” or more productive.
The brains of those who are born blind make new connections in the absence of visual information, resulting in enhanced, compensatory abilities such as a heightened sense of hearing, smell and touch, as well as cognitive functions (such as memory and language) according to a new study led by Massachusetts Eye and Ear researchers.
(Stanford University) By looking at groups of neurons in the emotional center of the brain, researchers now understand how neural networks in the brain form associations, like those made famous by Ivan Pavlov.

More than 5 million people are living with a brain injury in the U.S., according to the Brain Injury Association of America. Annually, the association estimates approximately 3.5 million children and adults sustain a brain injury. March is Brain Injury Awareness Month. There are many types of brain injuries ? the most common being concussion, which […]
Energy exists all around us. Kids and grownups get energy from food. Once food converts to energy in the body it gives them the strength and resources to go to school or work, and to use their brains and bodies to get things done. Another kind of energy comes from other sources so that people have electricity, can drive cars, trains and automobiles. Show More Summary
Colourful male guppies are healthier and better foragers. But using this information to pick a good mate requires female guppies to use more brainpower
It’s often said that the loss of one sense improves the others. New research shows the dramatic extent to which this is true in blind people, and how their brains make new connections to boost hearing, smell, touch—and even cognitive functions such as memory and language. Read more...
While the buildup of sticky proteins called amyloid plaques in the brain has been repeatedly linked to Alzheimer's disease, the role of blood in the formation of the condition has been less clear. Researchers at Rockefeller University...Show More Summary
UCLA scientists have traced the Pavlovian response to a small cluster of brain cells -- the same neurons that go awry during Huntington's disease, Parkinson's disease and Tourette syndrome. The research could one day help scientists find new approaches to diagnosing and treating these neurological disorders.
