THE BRAIN FROM TOP TO BOTTOM
A pair of Johns Hopkins and government scientists have discovered that when jazz musicians improvise, their brains turn off areas linked to self-censoring and inhibition, and turn on those that let self-expression flow.
This entire post is a spoiler. Stop reading if you have not seen Inception, because 1) I will reveal major plot points and 2) It will make no sense.
This exhibit explores our ability to pay attention to several things at once. When we scan a scene, we keep track of things we've already noticed and determine what to look at next—even though we may not be aware of doing so. Some scientists beli...
Hack Your Brain's Default Mode With Meditation
For nearly 20 years, neuroscientist Jim Fallon has studied the brains of psychopaths. After learning that his ancestry included alleged murderers, he decided to study his own brain. He was shocked at what he discovered.

Are you a mover, a perceiver, a stimulator, or an adapter? Modes of thinking can be understood in terms of how the top and bottom—rather than right and left—parts of the brain interact.
MIT and Harvard neuroscientists explain why the practice helps tune out distractions and relieve pain.

A visually compelling tour of the human brain, from anatomy to cells to genes and back.
The brain learns through changes in the strength of synapses -- the connections between neurons -- in response to stimuli. Now, researchers have found there is an optimal brain rhythm, or timing, for changing synaptic strength, and hence learning.
