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.
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.
