A new discovery: How our memories stabilize while we sleep

Scientists at the Center for Interdisciplinary Research in Biology (CNRS/Collège de France/INSERM) have shown that delta waves emitted while we sleep are not generalized periods of silence during which the cortex rests, ...

Is this brain cell your 'mind's eye'?

No-one knows what connects awareness—the state of consciousness—with its contents, i.e. thoughts and experiences. Now researchers propose an elegant solution: a literal, structural connection.

Brain finds order amidst chaos

How does the brain find order amidst a sea of noise and chaos? Researchers at the EPFL Blue Brain Project have found the answer by using advanced simulation techniques to investigate the way neurons talk to each other. In ...
