XXIII scientific school-conference of young scientists on the physiology of higher nervous activity and neurophysiology

A centerpiece of the 3-D human brain atlas published
Human Brain Project

Brain Thickness and Connectivity, Not Just Location, Correlates With Behavior
Cortical thickness and regional brain connectivity pay an equally important role in linking brain and behavior

Why the Brain Never Processes the Same Input in the Same Way
Depending on the network state, certain neurons in the primary somatosensory cortex can be more or less excitable, which shapes stimulus processing in the brain

Scientists Observe Learning Processes Online in the Brain
Repeatedly administered tactile simulation over a sustained period of time alters neural processing of the hand area in the brain. The observable changes over time illustrate neuroplasticity and shed new light on the process of learning

Discovery of “Thought Worms” Opens Window to the Mind
Researchers have discovered a brain-based marker for new thoughts, reporting people experience more than 6,000 thoughts per day. The study reports a new method that can detect indirectly when one thought ends and another begins

Is What I See, What I Imagine? The Neural Overlap Between Vision and Imagination
Using artificial intelligence and neuroimaging, researchers have identified a link between mental imagery and vision. The brain uses similar visual areas for mental imagery and vision but uses low-level visual areas less precisely for mental imagery than vision

Brain ‘Signature’ Could Help to Diagnose Schizophrenia
An EEG study reveals people with schizophrenia and their siblings without the disorder share patterns of brain activity that are different from people with no familial history of schizophrenia

Brain Structural Elements in Psychiatric Disorders
Comparing data from multiple neuroimaging studies, researchers found shared brain structural abnormalities between four psychiatric disorders, including schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. They also identified brain signatures unique to each condition

New imaging method tracks brain’s elusive networks
A new system for high-density EEG helps with the imaging of the origin and path of both normal and abnormal neural activity

Neuroscientists Think They've Found a Previously Unknown Form of Neural Communication
Scientists think they've identified a previously unknown form of neural communication that self-propagates across brain tissue, and can leap wirelessly from neurons in one section of brain tissue to another – even if they've been surgically severed

Dynamic stimulation of the visual cortex allows blind and sighted people to ‘see’ shapes
A visual cortical prosthesis can restore sight by bypassing damage to the eyes and delivering visual information retrieved from a camera directly to the brain

Significant differences exist among neurons expressing dopamine receptors
Dopamine receptors have different molecular features and functions depending on their anatomical location within the striatum

How strong is your mental imagery? It might depend on how ‘excitable’ your neurons are
Highly excitable neurons in the visual cortex may reduce a person’s ability to imagine mental images

High density EEG produces dynamic image of brain signal source
Researchers combine machine learning, EEG, and new functional imaging technology to dynamically map a neural signal’s source and underlying brain networks

Origins of human language pathway in the brain at least 25 million years old
Studying auditory regions and brain pathways in humans, apes, and monkeys, researchers have identified a language pathway that interconnects the auditory cortex with frontal lobe regions

A gut-to-brain circuit drives sugar preference and may explain sugar cravings
In the intestines, signals of sugar ingestion travel to the brain, sparking an appetite for more sweet foods

Advanced, high-res MRI scans reveal link between cognitive abilities and ‘tree ring’ layers in the brain
Object and facial recognition abilities are associated with the same brain area but are characterized by different depths of cortical layers, which form at the age each ability was acquired.

NIH BRAIN Initiative tool helps researchers watch neural activity in 3D
SCAPE microscopy, a new 3D imaging technique, allows a greater volume of brain tissue to be viewed in a much less damaging way to networks of living cells
