Learning that our brains process information differently when we’re standing up or lying down has implications for how we study and assess brain function.
Neuroscientists tackling the age-old question of whether perceptions of color hold from one person to the next are coming up with some interesting answers.
Rather than putting on a ‘brave face’, parents might be better putting on a ‘brave voice’ to conceal their emotions.
Perception is multisensory.

Researchers would like to find a way to relate the human perception of dryness to the chemical and physical properties of the wine.
A new initiative called the International Brain Laboratory is tackling this fundamental mystery of neuroscience in an unusual way.
We can see at a finer resolution than the spacing between individual photo-receptors in the eye – and it’s all down to our brains.
How does your brain deal with the ambiguous and variable visual information your eyes collect? Neuroscientists think it bets on what’s the most likely version of reality.
Uploading one’s mind to a computer in order to attain digital immortality has long been the fantasy of geeks and billionaires. So what’s stopping us?
Why do certain songs and colors make us feel a certain way?
Social communication requires us to integrate information from all our senses. But it seems the systems that govern different emotion perception skills may be impaired in people with bipolar disorder.
