Collaborative work on the brain atlas describes how different cells are organized and connected throughout the mouse brain. Understanding what differentiates brain cells can lead to new research and potential therapies for brain disorders.
New collaborative studies shed light on the organization of cells in key areas of the mouse brain and the organization of transcriptome, epigenomic, and regulatory factors that provide the brain cells with purpose and function.
A new technique dubbed light beads microscopy allowed researchers to generate a vivid functional movie of the near-simultaneous activity of almost a million neurons in the mouse brain.
Analyzing the gene activity of 66,000 cells from human brain tissue, researchers generated a comprehensive map of cell types associated with brain lesions in multiple sclerosis, and their gene expression patterns and interactions.
A new system translates EEG data into a 3D movie which shows activity in all recorded regions of the brain. The heat map shows where seizures start and spread throughout the patient's brain, in addition to evaluating the speed of activity during a seizure.
Researchers have compiled a new, highly detailed 3D brain map that captures the shapes and activity of neurons in the visual neocortex of mice. The map is freely available for neuroscience researchers and artificial intelligence specialists to utilize.
A study of people learning to read braille reveals how white matter reorganizes itself across different brain regions and timeframes to meet the brain's needs.
A new neuroimaging technique captures the brain in motion in real-time, generating a 3D view and with improved detail. The new technology could help clinicians to spot hard-to-detect neurological conditions.
A neuroimaging study of people with Down syndrome reveals subtle differences in the structure and function of the hippocampus.
The effects of intoxication, such as slurred speech and poor coordination, are a result of the breakdown of alcohol products in the brain and not the liver.
