MIT and Harvard neuroscientists explain why the practice helps tune out distractions and relieve pain.
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.
New studies demonstrate the deep power of human empathy, debunk right-brain and left-brain personalities, explore neural structures during sleep and way more...
The Brain Specimen Coasters are a set of coasters that each contain a different level of the brain printed onto them, and once they all get stacked together in a certain order, the coasters form a 3D ...
Close your eyes and visualize the sun setting over a beach. How detailed was your image? Did you envision a bland orb sinking below calm waters, or did you call up an image filled with activity -- palm trees swaying gently, waves lapping at your feet...
