How our brains track where we and others go

As COVID cases rise, physically distancing yourself from other people has never been more important. Now a new UCLA study reveals how your brain navigates places and monitors someone else in the same location.

Visual short-term memory is more complex than previously assumed

Contrary to previous assumptions, visual short-term memory is not merely based on one kind of information about an object, such as only its color or only its name. Rather, several types of information can be retained simultaneously ...

Laser therapy promising for drug-resistant child epilepsy

(HealthDay)—More than half of children treated with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-guided laser interstitial thermal therapy (MRgLITT) achieve seizure freedom at one-year follow-up, according to a study presented at the ...
