Scientists Show How a Gene Duplication Helped Our Brains Become 'Human'


A team led by scientists at The Scripps Research Institute has shown that an extra copy of a brain-development gene, which appeared in our ancestors' genomes about 2.4 million years ago, allowed maturing neurons to migrate farther and develop more connections.

What genetic changes account for the vast behavioral differences between humans and other primates? Researchers so far…

Mount and check signals of 16 EEG electrodes in less than 1 minute....

g.tec performed an experiment where 16 active dry EEG electrodes (g.SAHARAelectrode) where mounted. As electrode cap the g.GAMMAcap2 was used. The EEG data was recorded with the new 256 channel biosignal amplifier called g.HIamp.

The combination of these new developments leads to a pathbreaking assembling time for EEG electrodes!

In less than 1 minute, 16 EEG electrodes where mounted and the signal was checked – excellent EEG signals were recorded.

On Youtube you can see…

Pain and Itch

Neuroscience Bulletin, the official publication of Chinese Neuroscience Society, has just published a special issue on Pain and Itch (Volume 28, Number 2 / April 2012). This special issue provides a timely focus on recent progress in our understanding of the mechanisms of pain and itch. We hope this issue will provoke new studies that provide a better understanding of the mechanisms underlying pain and itch, eventually leading to more effective treatments of devastating chronic pain and itch…

Brain-Injury Data Used to Map Intelligence in the Brain

Scientists report that they have mapped the physical architecture of intelligence in the brain. Theirs is one of the largest and most comprehensive analyses so far of the brain structures vital to general intelligence and to specific aspects of intellectual functioning, such as verbal comprehension and working memory.

Their study, published in Brain: A Journal of Neurology, is unique in that it enlisted an…
