A metabolite created as the body breaks down ketamine could hold the key to understanding its antidepressant action, a new study reports.
Researchers used a new technique to discover what happens when Parkinson's patients receive cell transplants.
A new study reports microglia can diminish the adverse changes to neural circuitry bought on by chronic cocaine use.
A new study reports computer simulations have helped to identify the drug's binding sites.
A new study reports mice that express a reduced amount of the TMEM108 protein were more likely to express schizophrenia like symptoms, including memory and navigational problems.
Research combines antibody precision with toxic oxygen burst to inactivate neural protein and temporarily abolish fear memory in mice.
Researchers report low levels of NPTX2 in the brains of those with Alzheimer's disease may alter neural activity in a way that it could lead to memory loss associated with the disease.
Using cryo-electron microscopy, researchers have been able to capture how glutamate opens glutamate receptor ion channels. The Nature study provides significant insight into how receptors can mediate brain function.
Study reveals receptor movement is essential for synaptic plasticity as a response to neural activity. Halting receptor movement may block specific memory acquisition, researchers report, thus confirming the role of synaptic plasticity in learning and memory.
Researchers have identified three molecules they believe could be key for memory and learning.
