Researchers have developed a light-sensitive switch that regulates a protein implicated in synaptic plasticity. The researchers believe the photoswitch could help shed light on learning, memory and neurodegeneration.
According to a new study, brief exposure to mild trauma or sudden sounds can permanently alter neural networks and form long lasting memories.
According to researchers, electrical activity in the brain may be a primary factor in memory permanence.
Researchers have discovered a neurological mechanism which could help explain how songbirds are able to refine and alter their songs as adults.
A new study on Aplysia californica sea snails uncovers the first nervous system cells to fail during aging.
A new study provides evidence to distinguish between the parts of the brain which account for individual talent and the areas activated through training.
Researchers have identified a critical function of what they believe to be schizophrenia's "Rosetta Stone" gene that could hold the key to decoding the function of all genes involved in the disease.
A new study characterizes a novel way in which neurons remain electrically stable when confronted with chronic increases in neuronal activity.
Researchers identify a calcium dependent mechanism for neuronal information storage.
A new study offers insights into how diversity is created in neural circuits.
Findings could point to a new target to treat schizophrenia.
Researchers successfully reactivate brain plasticity in adult mice.
