A new study reveals the brain circuit that governs how we respond to conflicting environmental cues.
Researchers bioengineer an enhancement to a cutting edge technology that provides instant control over brain circuit activity with a flash of light.
Findings could lead to exciting new treatments for spinal cord injury and stroke patients, researchers report.
Researchers have optimized optogenetics to map the neural circuits of the rodent brain with single neuron resolution.
Researchers report on a new method that allows linking individual neurons and brain network activity to control behavior in zebrafish.
Using optogenetics, researchers obtain a better understanding of the neurochemical basis for alcohol addiction.
Olfactory retentivity persists at a central level, helping us to identify new odors in complex environments and memorize smells, a new study suggests.
Optogenetic stimulation of parvalbumin cells resulted in a reduction of local blood flow and volume. The findings could shed new light on the neurobiological underpinnings of Alzheimer's disease and schizophrenia.
