Scientists found the evolution behind the various brain sizes and functionality. Neuroscientists from Cornell University have collected 58 species of songbirds from 20 different families and studied the evolution of brain sizes.
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.
