A newly developed system dubbed Opto-vTrap can temporarily trap vesicles from being released from brain cells.
A brain network implicated in learning by trial and error also becomes engaged when people adapt to social norms, a new study reports. Findings suggest people learn from social information similarly to learning by trial and error.
Distinct, coordinated activity in large sets of neurons can predict the future behaviors of rats, a new study reports. Based on the findings, researchers have created a "dictionary" that links brain activity patterns to simple behavioral outcomes.
Socioemotional behavior at age eight predicted health behaviors during midlife both directly and indirectly through education.
People may underestimate the role of habit in their behaviors, including coffee consumption, researchers say. The automatic triggering of a behavior, such as a person's morning routine of coffee consumption, versus conscious intent is what makes a behavior a habit.

Paternal depression may contribute to adolescent depression and behavioral problems, regardless of whether or not the father and child are genetically related, researchers say.
Young teens who have tendencies toward impulsivity are more likely to develop behavioral conduct disorders, including ASPD and alcohol use disorder in older adolescence. Targeting impulsivity early may help to prevent the development of behavioral disorders later in adolescence.
