Neuroscience can help an athlete perform better at the Olympics, instead of relying solely on phsycial conditioning. It can active muscle memory, so the athletes' body can go into auto pilot and perform its best.
Scientists are studying tadpoles to look at how their neural circuits develop. These neural circuits are made up of many neurons. Neurons generate electrical and chemical signals in order to communicate with one another.
Scientists are trying to understand how the brain forms and processes emotions. They are conducting research on the brain patterns of positive and negative emotions to understand the brain a little bit better.
Synapses or neural connections in our brain are how we are able to process information and remember things. These connections happen in milliseconds and allow us and animals to make split second decisions.
