A study recently published in Neuron may provide new insights into how memory forms in the brain. Researchers discovered acquired olfactory memory is associated with synaptic long term potentiation, which can last for at least two weeks.
Researchers have developed two new compounds that are able to inhibit SARS-CoV-2 main protease. The study reports one of the compounds is a strong drug candidate for further investigative trials in the treatment of coronavirus.
Researchers have uncovered the neural mechanism underlying rumination. The study reports when rumination occurs, coupling between the core and medial temporal lobe subsystems of the default mode network becomes elevated, while coupling between the core and dorsomedial prefrontal cortex decreases.
Both those with schizophrenia and those with social anhedonia have alterations in the social brain network and a diminished correlation with real-world social network size.
Contrary to popular belief, a child's visual perception does not reach adult level at age seven. A new study reveals children's visual perception continues to develop and does not reach maturity until age ten.

While patients with schizophrenia, major depressive disorder, and bipolar disorder experience a lack of motivation and anhedonia, the neural patterns of emotion-behavior dissociation differ between the disorders.
Increased follicle-stimulating hormones following menopause bind to FSHR neurons and activate the C/EBPβ/AEP pathway. The process plays an important role in triggering Alzheimer's pathology in females.
