Your brain has ‘landmarks’ that drive neural traffic and help you make hard decisions

Your brain has ‘landmarks’ that drive neural traffic and help you make hard decisions

Using non-invasive MRI scans, researchers from the University of Melbourne establish the concept of senders and receivers in the brain. They discovered that some regions are better at sending electrical signals, while others are better at receiving them. This discovery might lead to better understanding of neural communication disruptions. ...
