New research has uncovered exactly what happens to the brain when astronauts are in space.
Without their devices, regular GPS users take longer to negotiate a route, travel more slowly and make larger navigational errors.
Video feedback may be the nearest we have to visualising what conscious processing in the brain is like.
Almost a third of American adolescents have anxiety disorders. Researchers in developmental neuroscience are figuring out that how the brain matures over time may be part of the reason why.
Higher education for seniors shows promise – for combatting social isolation, increasing well-being and delaying the onset, or slowing the progression, of dementia.
Biometrics are more secure than passwords – but when they're compromised fingerprints and retina scans are hard to reset. Brain responses to specific stimuli are as secure and, crucially, resettable.
Young women are disproportionately affected by multiple sclerosis, a disease where the body attacks the brain, scrambling communication to the rest of the body. Here's what we know about the causes.
With an ageing population, dementia is becoming more and more prevalent. But what does dementia actually do to the brain to cause changes in behaviour?
How to win at golf ...with a little help from neuroscience.
A new study offers an explanation as to how we remember events by forming mental images.
Our brain cells do look a lot like a map of the universe – but that doesn't mean they're the same thing.
Symptoms for Huntington's disease typically only start to be experienced in mid-adulthood.
Recent research shows that the heart is affected when the head takes a blow, in sports-related concussion.
If we don't get enough sleep, can we catch up later? Experts are divided.
African-Americans are severely underrepresented in genetics and neuroscience research. That could leave the treatments of the future out of their reach.
People with damaged frontal lobes often need help with daily life. The problem is, they think they're fine.
During epileptic seizures, neurons in the brain fire without rhyme or reason. New research identifies a possible way to wrest back control by stopping these signals before they can get started.
The difference between freedom and bananas helps explain.
Compulsory sport and physical education at school will improve children's memory, attention and ability to concentrate, not just boost fitness. The evidence is in.
Wearing a tie that causes slight discomfort can reduce blood flow to the brain by 7.5%, but the reduction is unlikely to cause any physical symptoms, which generally begin at a reduction of 10%.
