In research powered by machine learning, scientists found it is possible to tell which color someone is seeing by monitoring their brain activity, independent of their words for that color, adding to our understanding of how memories are formed and helping researchers better "decode" the specific features they contain.
People who cross their hands behind their back when learning new sentences are less likely to remember action verbs, nouns and sentences, but their memory of visual verbs is not influenced, according to new research from scientists in Spain, France and Italy.
Exposure to campaign ads increased anxiety levels among U.S. adults on both sides of the aisle during the 2016 election cycle, a finding that may not surprise anyone, though local races likely added to collective anxiety alongside the rancorous presidential race.
Persuading kids to eat more vegetables may be surprisingly simple yet somewhat counterintuitive, according to new research from The Pennsylvania State University: Doubling the portion sizes of broccoli and corn led preschool children to eat 68% more vegetables, but adding butter and salt did not change the amount consumed.
University of Pittsburgh engineers teamed up with Department of Veterans Affairs social workers to develop a prototype of a key-locking device that may one day prevent veterans who are at risk of committing suicide from accessing a gun during a moment of crisis.
College-age romantic partners' texting styles become increasingly similar as their relationship forms, according to a new study that is among the first to investigate linguistic alignment in text messages.
Rats that were exposed to a highly distressing event as juveniles experienced changes in brain regions responsible for processing emotions and detecting danger, offering new clues about the mechanisms that can lead to post-traumatic stress disorder in humans, following adverse events during childhood.
French researchers have linked abnormal activity in a specific part of the brain to compulsive cocaine seeking in rats, identifying a potential biomarker for addiction and method of treatment through deep brain stimulation.
The degree to which Latinx voters prioritize their U.S. American identity over their Latinx identity may have a significant influence on whether those voters support conservative immigration policies and Republican candidates, according to new research.
New research on thousands of TED Talks shows that people who speak with more "I" statements, positive emotion words like "love" and social words like "mate" get higher view counts and are seen as more popular and authentic.
A new brain probe small enough to fit on a mouse without impeding its movements that can be left in place for weeks at a time could be a significant technological advance in neuroscience, providing reams of previously unavailable data on brain activity, according to the scientists who developed the device.
Brain temperature differs from body temperature and is an important indicator of health after an injury, but it's difficult to measure without invasive procedures such as the implantation of temperature probes. A group of researchers has proposed a new biophysical model that can predict personalized brain temperature using data from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of individual brain tissue and vessel structures.
