Washington [US], May 16 (ANI): A new study from Dartmouth College reveals that three regions of the brain in the posterior cerebral cortex, which the researchers call 'place-memory areas', form a link between the brain's perceptual and memory systems, which helps the brain to store in memori
Washington [US], May 8 (ANI): A new University of Iowa study challenges the idea that grey matter (the neurons that form the cerebral cortex) is more important than white matter (the myelin covered axons that physically connect neuronal regions) when it comes to cognitive health and function
