Brain organoids are tiny models that neuroscientists use to learn more about how the brain grows and works. But new research finds important differences between the model and the real thing.
Despite its huge complexity, your brain directs its neural traffic in relatively straightforward ways when approaching cognitively demanding tasks such as puzzles.
Beware of the blind use of artificial intelligence: used as a "magic wand", for example in an autonomous car, it presents risks.
Aviation safety has much to gain from neuroscience: studying how our brains become “deaf” to alarms allows us to adapt the pilot's flight instruments.
A new initiative called the International Brain Laboratory is tackling this fundamental mystery of neuroscience in an unusual way.
Tiny particles of a mineral known as magnetite may be causing havoc with our health.
Neuroscientists analysed the brains of 210 healthy young adults. The result was a modern atlas of the human brain, 97 areas of which have never been described before.
