We rely on depth to perceive objects, but not all of us see depth in the same way.
Thanks to hundreds of fossil remains found in Africa studies can explore new scenarios about how our ancestors lived and evolved.
Decades of work with lab rats lead to suggestions on how to stay grounded in the here and now, with benefits for brain health.
Our everyday lives are full of decision dilemmas. To understand why we make particular choices, scientists investigate how our brain deals with uncertainty.
Air pollution is bad for our heart and lung health – and a new study says it may be bad for brain health, too.
Even our most treasured memories can gradually change over time.
Beware of the blind use of artificial intelligence: used as a "magic wand", for example in an autonomous car, it presents risks.
The scientific explanations might not be definitive, but your brain is largely responsible.
How does being thankful about things in your own life relate to any selfless concern you may have about the well-being of others? A neuroscientist explores the gratitude/altruism connection.
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.
