Some neurons in the cerebral cortex show higher spontaneous activity during general anesthesia than when awake, and this activity is synchronized across the cortical cells.
A new study sheds light on the movement of neurons throughout the brain during fetal development. Researchers also found the two hemispheres of the human cortex separated earlier in development than previously thought.
Study reveals axon density is lower than previously believed between distant regions of the brain.
Specific genes that contribute as risks for developing schizophrenia also affect the thickness and size of the brain's surface.
Researching the mechanics of how brain wrinkles and folds form may hold the key to understanding how brain disorders occur and identifying new treatment options.
A new framework reveals Alzheimer's disease is far more complex than previously believed. Rather than being a disease where the same causes produce the same outcomes, researchers found three different models for the disease, each with its own characterizations and dynamics.
Researchers have identified a specific form of autism marked by the presence of an excessive amount of synapses in the cerebral cortex. The abnormality may be linked to aberrant mTOR protein activity, a regulator of synapse production.
Researchers have identified a neural circuit that regulates threat response in mice.
New findings reinforce the idea that dementia with Lewy bodies can be pathologically classified as two different and distinct disease types.
