The human brain is the most complex of all organs, now a research team has developed a method for tackling the mammoth task of mapping this vast network.
Mind-machine interface could lead to new life-changing technologies for millions of people. "Brain cap" technology allows users to turn their thoughts into motion.
A study captured panic attacks discovered waves of significant physiological instability for at least 60 minutes before patients' awareness of the panic attacks.
Amon’s research was on a gene which seems to control the reproductive process in yeast may reverse aging in the cells of other organisms-including humans.
A team of researchers has unraveled the genomic code of the E. coli bacterium that caused the ongoing deadly outbreak in Germany that began in May 2011.
Gastric bypass surgery alters people’s food preferences so that they eat less high fat food. The findings suggest a new mechanism by which some types of bariatric surgery lead to long-term weight loss.
Hard-to-match kidney transplant candidates who receive a treatment designed to make their bodies more accepting of incompatible organs are twice as likely to survive eight years after transplant surgery as those who stay on dialysis for years awaiting compatible organs.
People who are socially skilled—who are adept at metaphorically putting themselves in someone else’s shoes—are also more proficient when it comes to spatial skills.
A recent study found that the greater an individual’s total muscle mass, the lower the person’s risk of having insulin resistance, the major precursor of type 2 diabetes.
After a 10,000-year absence, wildfires have returned to the Arctic tundra, and a study shows that their impact could extend far beyond the areas blackened by flames.
Over the past 30 years, around 200 species of amphibians have disappeared due to a fungal infection. An research group has reviewed every technique in order to prevent the effects of this disease and local extinctions and heat may hold the answer.
One of the world's most famous fossil creatures, widely considered the earliest known bird, is getting demoted: a new analysis suggests it isn't a bird at all.
For the first time, scientists have devised an invisibility cloak material that hides objects from detection using light that is visible to humans.
The first scientific measurements in humans show that potentially harmful haloacetic acids (HAAs) appear in the urine of swimmers within 30 minutes after exposure to chlorinated water where HAAs form as a byproduct of that water disinfection method.
