By analyzing alterations in waveform recorded from neurons during a heartbeat, researchers can more accurately classify different types of neurons in the human brain.
Computational power is amplified in the brain by newly discovered action potentials in dendrites.
Researchers report altering synaptic plasticity leads to a computational switch in a hippocampal synapse which turns the presynaptic neuron turns into “detonator” mode, causing it to fire more readily.
A new study sheds light onto the role astrocytes play in neurodevelopment.
New findings about how water enters neurons could help pave the way for the development of new therapies to treat edema.
Researchers create a fully functional neuron using organic bioelectronics. The artificial neuron is able to mimic the function of human neurons.
