According to a new study, degenerating neurons in the brains of Alzheimer's patients measurably responded to a new, experimental gene therapy.
According to a new study, using an optogenetic technique, researchers have been able to control embryonic stem cell differentiation, enabling them to be transformed into neurons.
A pioneering tool is set to investigate how a worm's brain controls its movements, researchers say.
Researchers have uncovered how a change in the PTBP1 protein can spur the creation of neurons. They propose this change could have fuelled the evolution of the human brain.
Researchers combine molecular components to manipulate genes in specific cell types.
A new study reveals insights into the pathological mechanisms that cause dysfunctional synapses.
According to a new study, habit formation is driven by neurons in the striatum which represent both the cost and reward of the behavior.
A new study reports researchers have developed an innovative method to examine brain structure and have discovered that the brain is not as compact as previously thought.
In two separate experiments, researchers have succeeded in transforming skins cells into neurons.
Researchers have developed a new imaging tool that is able to generate images of the brain of an adult mouse at a scale previously thought unachievable.
Findings could help lead to new treatments for brain disorders marked by chaotic neural oscillations.
A new study characterizes a novel way in which neurons remain electrically stable when confronted with chronic increases in neuronal activity.
