A new study reports researchers have identified two groups of neurons which appear to play key roles in social interaction.
Researchers have developed a new method for identifying clusters of neurons.
Researchers have successfully used a 3D printed guide to help damaged nerves repair themselves.
Researchers have produced a detailed map of cortical cells types and gene activity within them. They also report identifying a number of previously unknown cell types.
Researchers have shown it is possible to pick out key changes in genetic code between humans and chimpanzees. They were then able to visualize the contributions to early brain development using mouse embryos.
Researchers have successfully recorded current in membrane channels of contracting cardiac cells using the patch clamp technique and an atomic force microscope.
Spontaneous release of glutamate could cause neurons to grow and branch, a new study reports.
Protein degradation in intact neurons has been observed by researchers, a new study reports.
Researchers develop a new method to allow brain slices to be physically magnified and imaged at a higher resolution.
A new imaging method allows researchers to detect the brain-wide activity of neurons during specific behaviors, a new study reports.
According to a new study, nerve cell centralization does begin in multicellular animals.
Researchers observe and measure synaptic transmission in a live animal using optogenetics.
In animal studies, riluzole, a drug available for the treatment of ALS, has proven effective in preventing fading memories associated with old age, a new study reports.
A new technique has been developed which allows researchers to mark individual neurons, a new study reports.
Using flashes of light, researchers 'read' and 'write' neural signals, a new study reports.
