A new study reports on the role of dendrites in memory formation.
Implanted engineered cells with fluorescent dyes which change color in response to dopamine and norepinephrine allows researchers to observe changes in neurosignalling in real time, a new study reports.
A new study reports neurons which encode whether a memory is negative or positive can be reprogrammed to change the emotional association of the experience. Findings could have implications for future research into PTSD.
Researchers report performance of complex mental tasks can be boosted by 'off task' mental activities, such as reminiscing.
Moderate alcohol consumption in people over the age of 60 is linked to greater hippocampal volume and better episodic memory, a new study reports.
Researchers have devised a new mathematical model which helps explain how the brain's networks can learn new information while remaining stable.
A new study reports mental rest and reflection boost memory and learning.
Researchers report our brain uses previous visual experiences to predict how blurred objects would look in sharper detail.
People use geometrical relationships to help orient themselves, a new study reports.
A new neuroimaging study reports Romanian children who spent their early years in orphanages often have thinner brain tissue in cortical areas corresponding to attention and impulse control.
Researchers provide a new perspective on injury impairs brain function.
Researchers report people with PSP experience more severe and extensive cognitive impairments than those with Parkinson's disease.
Using optogenetics, researchers erase specific memories in mice.
Bigger brains don't necessarily mean greater intelligence, at least in mice and rats, a new study reports. The findings could have major implications for the future of research into learning and behavior.
A new study provides a possible explanation as to what causes cognitive and memory problems associated with chemotherapy treatments.
