The secret lives of whales

...ncy sounds, and they must have remarkable acoustic memories just as we have visual memories,?says Clark. Clark concludes that he and other researchers have been thinking about whale herds at the wrong scales, which has been constrained by the limitations of their recording and visual observation abilities. “...

First real-time view of developing neurons reveals surprises, say Stanford researchers

...," Niell said. When people learn new skills or add memories to their overstuffed brains, new connections are required to retain that information. Some diseases also seem to be caused by brain connections not forming normally. Dyslexia, for example, may be caused by connections failing to form between certain...

Love's all in the brain: fMRI study shows strong, lateralized reward, not sex, drive

...nts of information, everything from early personal memories to one's personal notions of beauty. Then, this brain region (and related regions of the basal ganglia) helps to direct one's actions toward attaining one's goals. For neuroscientists," she said, "these findings about the diverse regional functions o...

Turning viruses into allies against cancer

...ost, the mere mention of the word "virus" stirs up memories of pain, fever and varying levels of suffering. But in recent years, scientists have been trying to turn these long-time medical foes into allies in the fight against cancer. Through genetic engineering, viruses are being re-programmed to take advan...

Scavenger cells could be key to treating HIV-related dementia

...actually may damage a part of the brain where many memories are stored in their attempt to attack the virus there, according to findings reported in the Journal of Virology this month. Researchers found that HIV-infected macrophages in the brain continuously travel to the temporal lobe, a part of the brain A...

What Makes The Brain Tick, Tick, Tick: Researchers Gaining New Insights Into Brain's Internal Clock

... that we make temporal discriminations relative to memories of previous durations. Such features have made the machinery of interval timing more elusive, and some even questioned whether an internal clock of this sort even exists." In the 1980s Meck and his colleagues at Brown and Columbia Universities propo...

What can change in the brain? Electrical synapses, research shows

... the cerebral cortex, where it is transformed into memories and emotions, speech and movement. The thalamic reticular nucleus' role as a sort of switch, starting or stopping the flow of sensory stimuli to the cortex, may implicate it as a major player in the regulation of sleep and wakefulness, the researche...

Tracking the memory trace

...n the same place. "It's not as if we are forming memories that are then being written to a "hard disk" area of the brain, and it's there and recalled from the same location at any time after learning," said Davis. "We now think that different areas of the brain have dominion over small intervals of time aft...

How 'hot' emotional brain interferes with 'cool' processing

... new drugs to alleviate, for example, the haunting memories of PTSD sufferers will be aided by the fMRI technique the researchers developed to precisely measure this distraction, they said. The researchers, Florin Dolcos and Gregory McCarthy, published their findings in the Feb. 15, 2006, issue of the Journa...

Cloned stem cells prove identical to fertilized stem cells

... words, the egg needs to erase all tissue-specific memories from the skin cell and revert it into a genomic blank slate. But this entire process is almost never perfect, and nearly all cells in a cloned blastocyst retain some memory of their original source. As a result, the developing fetus inevitably has ...
