A new study reports the human brain exhibits greater plasticity than the brains of chimpanzees, which may have accounted for part of our evolution.
VIP interneurons specialize in inhibiting other inhibitory neurons in multiple regions of the cerebral cortex under specific behavioral conditions, a new study shows.
Newly identified neurons in the reticular thalamus could help shed light on the link between seizures and psychiatric disorders such as ADHD and schizophrenia, a new study reports.
A rapid memory system transition from the hippocampus to the posterior parietal cortex is stabilized as we sleep. Sleep and repeated rehearsal of memory jointly contribute to long-term memory consolidation.
Researchers have mapped cholinergic neurons, the first type of cells to degenerate in people with Alzheimer's disease.
Researchers implicate the inferior frontal junction area in controlling behavior and executive function.
Researchers believe some treatments for mental health conditions may be ineffective, or even dangerous for left handed people. A new study reports areas of the brain housing alertness and determination may be on the right side for left dominant people. The new theory suggests the location of a person's neural system for emotion depends on their handedness.
