Dr. Lihong Wang’s lab has recently identified the dynamic changing pattern of the cerebral blood perfusion in response to a repeatedly presented stressor over time.
A study from Dr. Lihong Wang’s group revealed that non-reactivity (one of the five facets of trait mindfulness) scores were inversely correlated with nsula activation during processing negative emotional events after a short mindful breathing period.
New research adds to our understanding of the learning process by showing exactly what‘s going on in the brain while performing tasks.
New connections between brain cells emerge in clusters in the brain as animals learn to perform a new task, according to a study published inNature on February 19 (advance online publication).
In collaboration with Vincenzo De Paola’s lab at MRC in London, Sen Song’s lab recently discovered that axonal bouton dynamics are increased in aging mouse cortex rather than decreased.
Brain-computer interface (BCI) technology aims at helping severely motor disabled people like the physicist Stephen Hawking, due to diseases such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or spinal cord injury, etc.
