According to a new mouse study, antibiotics that are strong enough to kill gut bacteria can also halt the growth of hippocampal neurons.
Researchers discover how the brain adapts in a study of children born without a corpus callosum.
Researchers report the strength of certain brain connections may predict success, or failure, at learning a second language.
Adult born neurons are essential for synaptic structural remodeling and memory consolidation during REM sleep, a new mouse study found.
A new series of studies review the roles neuroplasticity and neurogenesis play in alcohol addiction and recovery.
Reconstituting the amount of chondroitin 6-sulphate to perineuronal nets completely restored memory and brain plasticity in aging mice to a similar level as seen in younger animals, a new study reports. The findings could lead to new therapies to restore age-related memory loss in older humans.
Researchers report amputees are able to control a robotic arm with help of brain implants and BMI technology. The study details how brain areas that control both the intact arm and amputated limb can create new connections and learn to control the robotic arm, even years following the loss of a limb.
New discoveries about neuroplasticity following vision loss could improve patient susceptibility to sensory prosthetics.
Astrocytes, not microglia, are responsible for constantly eliminating unnecessary and excessive adult synaptic connections in response to brain activity.
A new study reports a protein made by astrocytes plays a critical role in brain plasticity by assisting with neural maturation and flexibility.
