A new Stanford neuroscience study reveals that creativity can slumps or bumps 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.
Researching the symptoms and severity of concussions will help researchers get a more detailed understanding of concussions.
In most babies and kids, the sound of their mother's voice gets special treatment in the brain. But in autism, this distinctive brain response is lessened.
Brain cells called oligodendrocytes supply insulation by wrapping neurons in multiple layers of fatty extensions, preserving signal strength and markedly speeding up transmission. But studying these cells in culture has been virtually impossible -- until now.
Long non-coding RNAs are important but poorly understood regulatory elements. Now Stanford scientists have uncovered they play a role in autism.
Small trial conducted by Stanford researchers links activity in the brain's reward processing system with drug relapse in patient cohort.
Stanford scientists are making efforts to create high-resolution simulated versions of the human brain, bells and whistles and warts and all.
New Stanford research found that knowing your genetic make-up can affect how your body responds and potentially affect your risk for certain conditions.
A decades-long scientific collaboration points the way to therapies for "chemo brain," the cognitive impairment that follows cancer treatment.
Brett, an avid cyclist, suffers a traumatic brain injury in a biking accident, but at Stanford he partners with his care team to pursue recovery.
