A new study advances basic understanding of the biochemical mechanisms associated with how memories are formed.
Researchers report they have discovered a gene involved in forming synapses.
Researchers report on how nerve cells recycle vesicles. The findings suggest the process is much faster and different that previously proposed.
Astrocytes actively refine neural circuits by selectively eliminating synapses, a new study reports.
Unexpected behavior in ferroelectric materials explored by researchers supports a new approach to information storage and processing known as memcomputing.
Researchers discover how parvalbumin-expressing interneurons, which usually limits stem cell activity, can also encourage the survival of the stem cells’ progeny.
Using mouse models, researchers report that exposure therapy remodels an inhibitory junction in the amygdala. The findings could improve understanding of how exposure therapy could suppress fear responses and help develop new treatment methods for those with anxiety disorders.
A new brain inspired device, which learns while it computes, could take parallel computing into a new era of ultra efficient high performance.
A gene implicated in human speech disorders and epilepsy is also required for vocalization and synapse formation in mice, researchers discover.
Researchers track single neurons in mice brains over time using advanced neuroimaging techniques. The new technique allowed them to establish the processes at play during memory formation and recall.
