Researchers identified a brain region responsible for driving action, and another that suppresses action. The study reports impulsive behaviors can be triggered or suppressed by activating these areas.
Researchers report the way the brain processes sensory input information depends on whether an animal lacks specific nutrients or is pregnant. The findings provide valuable new insight on the neural basis for behavior both within and beyond food choices.
Researchers have identified a neural network that connects the legs to the visual system in order to shape walking.
Neurons in the primary olfactory cortex play a role in encoding spatial maps, a new study reports.
Combining PET neuroimaging with a specific intravenous radioactive compound allows researchers to distinguish Lewy Body Dementia from Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's in brain scans.
Disrupted cannabinoid signaling impairs learning by altering behavioral states.
Study reveals a novel learning process orchestrated between the digestive system and brain that compels animals to seek out novel foods.
Researchers have developed a new method of measuring axons using MRI neuroimaging.
Humans and mice use inference skills to solve problems in a remarkably similar manner.
