A new study reports the lateral habenula, an area of the brain linked to depression, plays a crucial role in decision making.
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.
A new neuroimaging technique allows neurosurgeons to see neural connections prior to surgery, thus preserving and protecting the brain’s critical functions when operating.
The Never Ending Image Learner (NEIL) computer program is able to label images and learn associations with little human intervention.
Researchers discover the brain mechanisms which underlie discourse comprehension.
Researchers discover that a key piece of the scientific model used to help explain how humans perceive sound is wrong.
The connections between the right and left hemispheres of the brain strengthen during sleep for children. This strengthening could help brain functions mature, a new study suggests.
The neurons in the amygdala of ASD patients have reduced sensitivity to the eye region of other people’s faces, a new study reports.
Researchers develop a novel system to image worm brain activity. The new technology makes it possible for researchers to study the neural circuitry and genetics associated with animal behavior.
