A new study reveals how our brain swiftly adapts to compensate for dynamic and abrupt essential changes in behavior.
Researchers discuss how psychedelics can affect the brain and provide therapeutic benefits for those suffering from a range of psychiatric disorders.
A new study of the hippocampus reveals immature, plastic neurons are present in significant numbers during the entire lifespan. The findings shed new light on neuroplasticity.
Researchers have developed a virtual robotic arm that can be controlled by a person's feet in a virtual environment to provide an "extra" limb. After training, users reported feeling the virtual limb felt as though it was part of their physical body.
Findings shed light on how plastic and stable neural populations are able to co-exist in the brain.
Researchers report it's easier to control cognitive activity via transcranial magnetic stimulation in people with the Val/Val genetic variant of BDNF.
Optogentic stimulation has the potential to cultivate resilience to epileptic seizures in animal models, researchers report.
Diet influences dopamine and insulin signaling in the brain, which in turn directly affects the peripheral sensory response in fruit flies. This response influences what the fly decides to eat next.
Just one protein situated on the synapse can profoundly alter how some neurons communicate and implement plasticity.
