Nearly everyone can't tickle themselves and it's all to do with how our brains see and perceive movement.
You may have got what it takes to be a mathematical genius without even being aware of it.
Detecting drier or wetter conditions is crucial for insect survival. We've long known they can do this – now researchers have discovered the genetic and neural basis for their humidity-sensing system.
What exactly is addiction? What role, if any, does choice play? And if addiction involves choice, how can we call it a "brain disease," with its implications of involuntariness?
A newly registered trial aims to research reanimating brain dead people. But even if it works, it's not clear who the new person would be.
Our heads are like radio receivers, and they can tune in to various different channels.
The reason why some of us can't help but to dance, and others can't hold a beat, might lie in the brain.
Researchers are trying to fill in the blanks between genetic blueprints and psychiatric disorder by studying changes in the brain.
Have you ever arrived in a hotel room after a long flight and despite being exhausted, failed to fall asleep? This is called the first-night effect and we may have understood why it occurs.
Insects have similar structures in their brains as do we, and that might mean that have a basic form of consciousness.
Without the ability to rewire itself, the brain wouldn't be able to grow or recover from injury.
Consciousness is one of the most puzzling phenomena in science. How does the electric and chemical activity in your brain produce your subjective experiences; the colour red or the taste of chocolate?
The theory of antimemories could help explain many cognitive problems in the brain such as autism and schizophrenia.
People lose their memory in many different ways. A neuropsychologist explains the lingo.
Science is about more than protons, genes and neurons. Sometimes a bigger picture can help us make better decisions when it comes to public policy.
Philosophically speaking our smartphones could be seen as an extension of us. But where does that leave us legally?
Part two: neuroscience reveals why mood swings, clumsiness and strange food cravings go hand in hand with pregnancy.
Are there sex differences in the human brain? The answer is more nuanced than yes or no.
