Patients most likely to suffer severe pain following an operation can be reliably identified using a new technique developed at the University of Birmingham.
A research team led by associate professor, Mohammad Shehata at Toyohashi University of Technology, in cooperation with researchers at the California Institute of Technology and Tohoku University have found the brain waves and regions sensitive to team flow compared to non–engaging teamwork or a solo flow.
Researchers identified brain signals that reveal when the mind is not focused on the task at hand or aimlessly wandering.
Measuring brainwaves produced during REM sleep can predict whether a patient will respond to treatment from depression.
Rhythms produced by the brain can reliably be used to predict how sensitive we are to pain, new research shows.
Children with autism have more significant sleep difficulties caused by shallower brain waves than typically developing children, according to researchers at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU). The study was reported in Sleep, the premier journal in the field.…
Memory performance can be improved by rhythmic neural stimulation or ‘entrainment’.
