A new neuroimaging study identifies differences in brain areas in children with Tourette syndrome compared to peers without the disorder.
Researchers at Salk Institute report astrocytes initiate communication between pairs of neurons during early development, inducing specific neural changes. Findings may have implications for neurodevelopmental disorders such as ASD and ADHD.
A groundbreaking study reports memory capacity in the brain is far higher than previously believed.
Researchers provide a comprehensive map of transport in mammalian axons.
Axonal swelling in the Purkinje cells of mice had no detrimental impact on firing rate or the speed at which axons transmit signals. At peak firing rate, axons with swellings were less likely to fail than those without.
Researchers have successfully mapped brain networks that are responsible for perception and movements linked to touch. The findings may provide new insights into the connection between movement and touch.
Researchers report oligodendrocytes may be critical to the remyelination process.
Schwann cells are much more prolific in generating myelin than previously believed. Knocking out the fbxw7 gene in mouse models, researchers discovered individual Schwann cells began to spread myelin across many axons.
