Research reveals new insights into how sleep deprivation affects children's brains

Research reveals new insights into how sleep deprivation affects children's brains

Any parent can tell you about the consequences of their child not getting enough sleep. But there is far less known about the details of how sleep deprivation affects children's brains and what this means for early brain development. [More]

Novel technique reveals alterations in white matter pathways in the brains of individuals with ASD

A new study found significant changes in white matter pathways in the brains of individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) using a novel technique called Automated Fiber Quantification (AFQ). [More]
Experimental cancer imaging tool shows promise in illuminating brain tumors during surgery

Experimental cancer imaging tool shows promise in illuminating brain tumors during surgery

An experimental cancer imaging tool that makes tumors glow brightly during surgery has shown promise again in a new Penn Medicine clinical study, this time in patients with brain cancer. [More]
Painless tDCS technique could improve life for people with major depression

Painless tDCS technique could improve life for people with major depression

Small amounts of electricity similar to the output of a common 9-volt battery could improve life for people living with major depression, the most common mood disorder. [More]

Research finds difference in brain activity between native English and Japanese speakers during vocal communication

Which parts of a person's face do you look at when you listen them speak? Lip movements affect the perception of voice information from the ears when listening to someone speak, but native Japanese speakers are mostly unaffected by that part of the face. [More]
Maternal depression may affect child's brain development at critical stages in life

Maternal depression may affect child's brain development at critical stages in life

Depressive symptoms in women during and after pregnancy are associated with reduced thickness of the cortex-the outer layer of the brain responsible for complex thought and behavior-in preschool-age kids, according to a new study published in Biological Psychiatry. [More]

Scanning people's brains with fMRI more effective at spotting lies than traditional polygraph test

Scanning people's brains with fMRI more effective at spotting lies than traditional polygraph test

When it comes to lying, our brains are much more likely to give us away than sweaty palms or spikes in heart rate, new evidence from researchers in the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania suggests. [More]
Review offers new way of looking at spontaneous versus controlled thinking

Review offers new way of looking at spontaneous versus controlled thinking

During downtime, some of us daydream while others might focus on a to-do list, or get stuck in a negative loop. Psychology has traditionally defined all these thought patterns as variations of "mind-wandering." [More]
