Astrocytes actively refine neural circuits by selectively eliminating synapses, a new study reports.
Researchers present a new theory which explains how critical periods are triggered during neurodevelopment.
Using a brain machine interface, monkeys learn to control the movement of two virtual arms, a new study reports.
Playing video games causes increases in brain regions responsible for memory formation and strategic planning, researchers have discovered. The findings could prove relevant in developing new therapeutic interventions for psychiatric illnesses.
Researchers discover neurons regulate their own excitability so that the activity level in networks remains as constant as possible.
Researchers discover neurons have a special preassembly technique to speed up the manufacture of proteins at synapses, enabling synaptic plasticity and the brain to rapidly form memories.
A new study finds protein synthesis in dendrites could be responsible for long-term memory formation in the brain, in addition to other functions.
Neurofeedback which enhances the signal-to-noise ratio of brain activity, could have positive implication for rehabilitation following brain injury.
On Oct. 2 at 10 a.m. Pacific (1 p.m. Eastern), Scientific Learning Corp. will present a free, online seminar by Norman Doidge, M.D., author of the New York Times and international bestseller, “The Brain That Changes Itself.”
Proteins which control the visual system development in young brains could also affect vulnerability to Alzheimer’s disease in the aging brain, a new study reports.
