Neuroscientists have, in fact, developed a method to detect which criminals are likely violate the law in the future.
A team of researchers from Japan's National Institute of Genetics have successfully captured a zebrafish's thoughts on video as it spied some food.
A new study indicates that sending robots out into space instead of humans might actually be the best way forward, after all.
In movies, a loved one often consoles a brain-damaged patient by talking to them as if they are spatially aware. This is thought to be more about positive energy than actual communication, but new research has proven that at least some patients thought to be in a vegetative state are indeed still aware on some level.
For all our advances in science and technology, the inner workings of the human brain remain largely a mystery when it comes to some of our habits and addictions. But a new research study from MIT has offered new insight into how we might be able to directly control those habits with simple bursts of light.
Memories are a tricky thing. They can be full of joy or full of fear. It's those crappy, fearful, bad ones — like remembering getting bitten by a dog, for example — that we all wish we could get rid of. That soon could be a reality as scientists experimenting with memory have developed a technique to stop fearful memories from forming.
Thanks to an EEG headset and a compressed air cannon, destroying things with your brain just got a whole lot easier.
I bet most of us think we're pretty smart. Bad news, folks — we're not. Well, not compared to these prodigies, at least (their IQs range from 160-230). Whew, check out these impressive individuals in the infographic below.
In these days of artisinal cheeses, environmentally-friendly yoga mats, and mainstream TV shows like Weeds, cannabis smoking has, for some, become yet another symbol of a healthy lifestyle. But according to a new study, the substance could impact your chances of becoming the next Einstein.
These days, you can pickle just about anything. We even have yodeling pickles (though it should be noted these are not real pickles). And now we've got pickled human brains from 2,684 years ago! Well, we have one, at least.
