Researchers can now see how the two sides of the living brain mirror each other thanks to a new combination-imaging technique.
KAIST research team identified the intrinsic control architecture of brain networks. The control properties will contribute to providing a fundamental basis for the exogenous control of brain networks and, therefore, has broad implications in cognitive and clinical neuroscience.
Researchers from the University of Geneva have discovered that we are more confident and decisive when aiming to get a reward but more resilient when trying to avoid punishment.
