Researchers implant optogenetic electronic device into mouse brains, stimulating dopamine producing neurons by emitting light.
Years of mouse research lead to discovery of how autophagy keeps neural stem cells ready to replace damaged brain and nerve cells.
Researchers discover a slight decline in fine motor skills associated with aging, with a marked drop in ability for those aged 64 and older.
Adapting two dimensional culture methods to grow 3-D neuron structures from induced pluripotent stem cells, researchers may be able to model and study neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease.
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.
New research points to molecules which help axons to branch and grow. The study could assist in finding new treatments for nerve regeneration after injury.
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.
Researchers analyze the atomic structure of two types of human serotonin receptors. Their findings could explain why some drugs, which interact with these receptors, occasionally have harmful effects.
Researchers develop new medical records software which helps monitor the health of the aging brain.
