Sensors to measure perspiration or monitor brain activity, companies are mining consumers' raw emotions for information.
Researchers looked at studies exploring brain regions associated with the reward system, and how these are related to video game addiction
Playing video games which get you moving are an effective way of boosting brain health as we age, according to a new European research.
Experiencing interpersonal abuse before the age of 18 may affect the capacity to concentrate and stay focused during later life, a study has showed.
Playing a specifically designed video game may help people cope with depression, especially if they receive text reminders to play, scientists including one of Indian origin have found.
Scientists studying what satnavs do to the brain have found that people using them effectively switch off parts of the brain that would otherwise be utilised to simulate different routes and boost navigational skills.
Excessive alcohol use during adolescence may disrupt the development of brain and increase the risk of substance use disorder later in life, a new study has warned.
Measuring the level of brain activity in healthy older adults while they are walking can predict their risk of falling, suggests a study led by an Indian-origin scientist
The study suggests a state of memory apart from the spotlight attention of active working memory.
Consciousness depends upon the way nerve cells communicate and on the degree to which they manage to differ in terms of their activity patterns.
Scientists have developed a diagnosis system based on virtual reality (VR) technology that may help in the early detection of various neuro-degenerative disorders including multiple sclerosis (MS) and Parkinson's disease.

Exposure to blue light for a short period can help you make difficult decisions faster up to 40 minutes after the exposure had ended
A long-term memory test combined with a brain scan could help in early diagnosis of people with Alzheimer's disease, a new study suggests.
Researchers, including one of Indian-origin, have pinpointed the area of the brain responsible for recognising human facial expressions.
brain biometrics are appealing because they cannot be stolen by malicious means the way a finger or retina can. The results suggest that brainwaves could soon be used by security systems to verify a person's identity with 100 percent accuracy.
The memories that are formed in one part of the brain are replayed and transferred to another area for long-term storage, even while our bodies take rest.
Having more ideal cardiovascular health is linked with better brain processing speed, according to a study.
