A Brain Mechanism underlying “Vision” in the Blind is Revealed

Researchers observed slow spontaneous fluctuations in the brain’s visual centers that preceded visual hallucinations in blind people

Creativity Emerges from Spontaneous Neural Activity

Creative ideas are linked to resting fluctuations that begin as a kind of noise

How do our bodies synchronize our two halves – hands and brain?

Some brains are idiosyncratic

A new Weizmann Institute study reveals the idiosyncratic brain patterns of autism

Writ Large – and Small

How does the brain encode movements that occur on many scales?

The day after effect of brain activation: The brain image at the back presents spontaneous (resting state) patterns before an fMRI-based neurofeedback training session. The front brain image presents spontaneous (resting state) patterns a day after the training session, illustrating the long-term trace of the training

Weizmann Institute scientists discover that spontaneously emerging brain activity patterns preserve traces of previous cognitive activity
