A new study advances basic understanding of the biochemical mechanisms associated with how memories are formed.
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.
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.
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.
Researchers create new and specific memories by directly manipulating brain cells in the cerebral cortex of rodents.
Researchers discover the role protein mGluR5 plays in cocaine addiction. The finding could help point a way to new treatments for addiction.
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.
A new study shows a missing brain protein could lead to abnormal levels of fear.
