Researchers have developed a device which records the brain activity of worms in order to test the effects of drugs.
Researchers have developed a fiber-optic, two-photon optogenetic simulator which can be used to stimulate a light sensitive protein introduced into neurons and living cells in the brain. The researchers suggest this technology would be a useful tool for the BRAIN mapping initiative.
Artificial sensors in a prosthetic hand allows rhesus macaques to sense tactile stimulus, according to a new study. A similar device could be used in human trials within the next year, researchers hope.
Targeting the nucleus accumbens by using deep brain stimulation could modify specific eating behaviors linked to weight changes and obesity, a new study suggests.
New research suggests children with ASD spend more time playing video games and watching TV than participating in social media and pre-social activities compared to their typically developing peers.
Researchers implant optogenetic electronic device into mouse brains, stimulating dopamine producing neurons by emitting light.
First Neutron Scattering Experiments on Brain Tissue Reveal Weaknesses in Formaldehyde Preservation, Reducing Reliability of Post-Mortem Analysis
A new study demonstrates the power of neutrons to model cellular water diffusion in brain tissue.
Researchers have developed a cost effective cooling device which helps lower a newborn’s temperature. The treatment could help prevent brain damage if administered shortly after oxygen deprivation, which can occur during birth.
Vanderbilt researchers develop a humanoid robotic system to help teach autistic children to coordinate their attention with objects and other people in their environment.
Researchers develop new medical records software which helps monitor the health of the aging brain.
