New research suggests why people with epilepsy, even when their seizures are well controlled, report lapses in their ability to think, perceive or remember.
A new discovery could provide a way of detecting Parkinson's disease in its earliest stages, before symptoms start. And it could accelerate the development of …
Stanford scientists have conducted a proof-of-concept experiment in mice that shows they can use blood stem cells to treat a severe brain disease.
Researchers have identified five types of concussions, which have different symptoms and initial treatments. All can disturb sleep.
After a bike crash, Anthony Macchio-Young undergoes emergency neurosurgery at Stanford. But that's only the beginning of his journey to recovery.
Scientists at Stanford have identified a gene key to the formation of a type of toxic protein in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a neurodegenerative disease.
The real question a new study suggests, isn't why some people occasionally experience hallucinations: It's why all of us aren't hallucinating all the time.
Stanford researchers develop a simplified method for decoding electrical activity in the brain, which could lead in the future to improved prosthetics.
Selectively subduing a set of cells that migrate to the brain after a stroke occurs could meaningfully treat the stroke even days later.
A new Stanford neuroscience study reveals that creativity can slump or bump between ages 8 and 10, depending on the individual.
Old mice suffered far fewer senior moments on memory tests when Stanford investigators disabled a single molecule dotting the mice’s cerebral blood vessels.
A Stanford study shows Pokémon expertise developed during childhood activates the brain region that processes information from the center of the retina.
Using a lab model, Stanford researchers identified a type of developing brain cell that is profoundly changed by exposure to low oxygen levels.
PTSD patients who do not respond to exposure therapy may have a disruption in a part of the brain known as the ventral attention network.
Brain cells called microglia keep brains young by eliminating accumulations of protein debris. But their garbage-colllection ability fades with age.
Each time you get a reward, your brain's internal spatial map warps just a bit in a way that makes it easier for you to get back to wherever you got it.
