"The learning we induced during sleep was just to change the emotional value of the different locations of the environments
It's a powerful testament to the kind of impact that global data collection and scientific collaboration can have. They discovered
The brain fascinates me, and my perfect career is to explore the mysteries of the brain while curing patients. Dr. Catherine Black, on Black Box, is exactly the type of neurologist I aspire to be.
The idea of telepathy may not be as far-fetched as it seems. This year, scientists achieved direct brain-to-brain communication
Why do some of us cheat in our relationships and have romantic affairs? Are there factors that may predict infidelity in men and women? What does the science say? For a better understanding of infidelity (and how to spot a potential cheater), HuffPost Science's Jacqueline Howard reached out to sexuality researcher Dr. Robin Milhausen and neuroscientist Dr. Giovanni Frazzetto.
HuffPost Science's Jacqueline Howard interviews neuroscientist Dr. Lise Eliot about differences in the male and female brain.
If a cure, and ultimately a prevention, for such disorders as schizophrenia, autism or Alzheimer's can be developed in our lifetime, it will save trillions of dollars in medical and patient-care costs and a lifetime of family heartaches.

Neuroscience has grown from a subdiscipline of biology to a field in its own right, with its own proliferating subdisciplines. In coming decades, it will rival and then surpass the influence of the older physical sciences. This is the era of the brain supremacy.
The observed disparity between recognition and motor skill control is the basis for what is called “action-perception dissociation
It was an honor to interact with scientists who are going in directions where no one has gone before in neuroscientific research. It's good to know we have people on the planet excited about the questions no one has yet to answer.
