New research has found that gender differences in spatial ability is significantly affected by the conceptual framework the task is presented in.
Researchers at the University of California, San Diego have identified the area of the brain, the retrosplenial cortex, that helps put together the necessary spatial information for navigation. The researchers referred to this area as “conjunction junction” as it serves as an intermediary between the different areas of the brains that generate […]
The brain is widely recognized as the most powerful organ of the human body. With our brains, we reason, learn, dream, plan, and perceive the world around us. Part of perception is the development of an internal mapping system based on visual cues. A new study from The Scripps Research […]
Over the course of three decades, two separate research efforts helped unwrap the questions of “how does the brain create a map of the space surrounding us and how can we navigate our way through a complex environment?” The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine was split into two halfs. […]
