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.
Projecting images onto the floor of a maze, rodents can learn behaviors faster.
Emotions trigger strong bodily sensations and the bodily maps for each sensation are topographically different for different emotions. The sensation patterns are consistent across different cultures, suggesting sensational patterns have a biological basis, researchers say.
Researchers successfully demonstrate a technique to enhance self control through a new form of brain stimulation.
Researchers show optogenetics can be as good as, if not better than, using electrical stimulation in neuroscience research.
Researchers treat pain by 'shocking' the brain with low doses of electrical current delivered non-invasively to patients.
Mouse whisker research reveals a signaling pathway which relays touch signals to the brain.
Our brains could process new situations by relying on a method similar to a "pointer" system used by computers, new research suggests.
Researchers have identified how the circadian clock helps prime mitochondria to correctly use stored energy when we are not eating.
The NIH has launched three innovative projects which will focus on the development of therapeutics for nicotine addiction, AMD and Fragile X Syndrome.
Neuroscientists Plant False Memories in Mice Brains and Locate Where Brain Stores False and Authentic Memory Traces
Neuroscientists appear to have implanted memories in mice and appear to have located where the brain stores memory traces, both false and authentic.
Researchers discover a pathway by which the brain controls a molecule critical to forming long-term memories, and is connected to some psychiatric disorders.
Sensory information travels to two places at once; both the brain's mid-layer and the deeper layers, according to new research.
Using an innovative brain-tracing technique, researchers discover a way to 'untangle' neural networks. The findings offer insight into how specific brain regions are connected.
According to a new study, the brain's pleasure response to tasting food may be measured through the eyes by using ERG.
