The first MRI-based mapping of the squid brain yields 145 new connections and pathways, 60% of which are linked to the motor and visual systems. The new brain map brings researchers one step closer to understanding how the squid can instantly camouflage itself.

A new study, using mouse models, demonstrates sensory deprivation can activate the brain to rewire networks following a stroke. The findings could have major implications for stroke rehabilitation in humans.
Researchers have developed a new brain mapping technique that is able to capture a detailed snapshot of global activity in a mouse brain.
Players of the popular online brain mapping game Eyewire have assisted in identifying six new neuron types, researchers report.
A research team describes the entire network of brain cells that are connected to specific motor neurons controlling whisker muscles in newborn mice. A better understanding of such motor control circuits could help inform how human brains develop, potentially leading to new ways of restoring movement in people who suffer paralysis from brain injuries, or to the development of better prosthetics for limb replacement.
Researchers have developed a new machine learning system that analyzes the entire human genome to predict which genes may cause ASD.
Mental illness suspect genes are among the most environmentally responsive. For the first time, scientists have tracked the activity, across...
Researchers report using neuroimaging to map the brains of preterm babies soon after their born could hold clues as to possible disabilities they may develop.
Neuroscience researchers are investigating axon clusters in order to develop a "brain atlas". The research could provide a way for clinicians to recognize groups of abnormal axon clusters. When systematically arranged into the "brain atlas", abnormal axon clusters could be used as bio-markers to diagnose neurological disorders.
Studying juvenile zebra finches, researchers discover a mechanism which could possibly be responsible for the differences in the intensity of song learning.
