A new map of the octopus visual system classifies different types of neurons in a part of the brain dedicated to vision, shedding new light on the evolution of the brain and visual systems in a more broad sense.
Researchers propose a new, more robust statistical method for mapping the brain.
Working memory isn't confined to one area of the brain. It requires synchronous activity of at least two brain areas.
Researchers track single neurons in mice brains over time using advanced neuroimaging techniques. The new technique allowed them to establish the processes at play during memory formation and recall.
Researchers were able to ascertain the colors people were seeing by looking at their brain activity. The study reveals we have unique brain activity associated with specific colors.
Following targeted motor and sensory reinnervation, a procedure that reroutes residual limb nerves to intact muscles and skin in amputees, the brain remaps both motor and sensory pathways. Additionally, researchers note, TMSR may help counteract poorly adapted cortical plasticity following amputation.
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.
Having a parent with an alcohol use disorder affects how your brain transitions between active and resting states, regardless of your own drinking habits.
