Researchers find seemingly identical neurons can behave the same, even though they are built differently under the surface.
Researchers engineered microscopic probes which light up synapses in living neurons by attaching fluorescent markers onto synaptic proteins without affecting the neuron’s ability to function.
A new method for obtaining mature neuronal cells from reprogrammed skin cells allows researchers to safely and effectively study diseases such as schizophrenia and autism.
A new study funded by the NIMH suggests GLYX-13, a molecular cousin to ketamine, induces similar antidepressant results without the negative side effects of the well known street drug.
Researchers discover the mechanism and protein responsible for the creation of the giant Calyx of Held synapse in the brain’s auditory system.
