Post-genomic analysis of the regulation of synapses in a rodent hippocampus sheds new light on the interaction of proteins and lipids within the synaptic membrane.
Study reveals how the drosophila brain subconsciously processes salient information, such as odors, that require interpretation while asleep.
Findings shed new light on the role the prefrontal cortex plays in sensory processing and perception.
When we lie down, our brains decrease reliance on information related to the external world and increase reliance on internal perceptions generated by the sense of touch.
Our concepts of people, objects, and events are composed of sensory impressions and actions associated with them, in addition to abstract symbol-like features.
Researchers say the order in which your senses interact with food items impacts how much you enjoy your meal.
Sensory neurons in the fingertips are able to detect tactile stimuli at the scale of a single fingerprint ridge.
The brain suppresses the perception of the heartbeat, affecting our perception of other sensory stimuli. Researchers propose the brain’s sensitivity to sensory stimuli depends on the cardiac cycle and the brain’s perception of it.
Our brains make predictions based on experience during episodes of learning. Researchers found expectations during the predictions affect the activity of various brain networks.
