Childhood trauma can result in several health issues during adulthood such as dissociative symptoms and PTSD. Research from McLean Hospital reveals how MRI scans provide evidence of dissociative symptoms.
Scientists used brain imaging technology in infants to examine the emergence of neural flexibility and its role in predicting reading ability, academic success, resilience to stress, creativity, and lowering the risks of developing psychiatric problems.
Medical researchers from Hong Kong have come up with a new approach to detect the early onset of Alzheimer's disease a decade before symptoms become apparent. The new and non-invasive method involves using MRI scans and tracking glucose distributions in the brain.
Scientists have found that neurological evidence in the form of brain scans that show birds of a feather do flock together. The team says that neural and social signals in the mind align in terms of how we perceive both safety and risk. This means that trends happen for a reason, and now scientists have a better understanding of why-no matter how awful, embarrassing, or just plain weird the trend is.
In our quest to understand the complex inner workings of the human brain, researchers at New York University have brought us one step closer. They have pinpointed a region of the brain exclusively devoted to processing speech, which not only provides a better understanding of the cerebral landscape, but settles a long-standing dispute concerning the brain's perception of sound.
