A new study in mice finds microglia help neurons grow synapses critical for cognitive function.
Too many chandelier cells in the binocular region of the brain impair visual depth perception.
A novel AI system recognizes a neuron in microscope images of the brain more efficiently than any previous approach. The system improves current methods of tracing neurons and their connections, which can help improve brain mapping.
Researchers found specific neurons in the striosome that help mice learn to avoid negative experiences.
Researchers have identified a neural circuit responsible for inducing insomnia associated with stress. The same neural circuit also induces changes in the immune system.
Abnormal activation of parvalbumin neurons in the young mouse auditory cortex manifests as a result of maternal neglect.
When learning a new task, brain activities alter over time as mice transition to an expert from a novice. The changes are reflected in neural networks and neural activity. As the animal's knowledge grows, neural networks become more focused.
A new process for classifying neurons in the brains of mice has been outlined by researchers from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. The platform pairs microscopy with genetic labeling at single neuron resolution, allowing researchers to reconstruct the brain, by providing information on every neuronal type's location.
