Paying taxes, according to the brain, can bring satisfaction

...y get from charitable giving. Until now we couldnt trace that in the brain. Neural activation from mandatory taxation, the researchers said, helps predict who will give. We could call the people whose brains light up more when money goes to charity than to themselves altruists, Mayr said. The others are ...

Old memory traces in brain may trigger chronic pain

...source of chronic pain appears to be an old memory trace that essentially gets stuck in the prefrontal cortex, the site of emotion and learning. The brain seems to remember the injury as if it were fresh and cant forget it. With new understanding of the pain source, Vania Apkarian, professor ...

Chronic pain can drive you to distraction

...hat pain may disrupt the maintenance of the memory trace that is required to hold information for processing and retain it for storage in longer-term memory stores. In other words, chronic pain can, quite literally, drive people to distraction. Participants in the studyall of whom had pain lasting six mo...

New book provides unprecedented look at role of religion over a lifetime

Colon cancer survival linked to number of lymph nodes examined

...entiveness, Chang acknowledges. A surgeon needs to trace back the origins of blood vessels closest to the tumor because the lymphatic system, with its nodes, closely tracks with the blood system. Sometimes the nodes, which filter cancer cells from the lymph, can be difficult for pathologists to find, esp...

Tracing broken wiring in stroke patients

Researchers have used a technique to trace the functional disruption in brain circuitry that causes stroke patients to show a lack of awareness or response to the side of the body opposite to the side of the stroke lesion in the brain. The researchers said their findings shed new light on the...

Queen's studies find new links between wine, fermented foods and cancer

...ges such as wine, cheese, yogurt and bread contain trace amounts of carcinogens. Maintaining a balanced diet from a variety of sources including garlic is a better choice, the researchers suggest. Led by Dr. Poh-Gek Forkert of Queen's Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology, the team has discovered that...

Concentrations of certain toxins in breast milk are low, study finds

...e nearly every human on the planet has at least a trace of these compounds in their body. The focus should be on minimizing our exposure to their sources, Buckley said. "With respect to automobile sources of air toxics, the level of traffic and your distance from that traffic both affect what you breath...

Brain studies reveal the mechanisms of the voluntary control of visual attention

...brain activations detected with ERPs are harder to trace back to their exact origins inside the brain. To overcome these limitations, Grent-'t-Jong and Woldorff combined brain responses from the two technologies recorded in identical experiments. "To effectively understand how the brain accomplishes cogn...
