Researchers track the connectivity patterns of chandelier cells.
A new Cell study reports on the molecular-genetic basis of neural cell types. The study reports families of gene encoding proteins involved in neurotransmission define neurons by determining which cells they connect to and how they communicate.
A multiyear study reveals, contrary to expectations, numbers and ratios of three major inhibitory cell types vary stereo-typically across different cortical parts. Additionally, researchers identified 11 subcortical areas with gender specific differences in mice.
Researchers report conventional understanding of fear learning may be incorrect. Contrary to popular thought, the central amygdala, and not the lateral amygdala may be the seat of aversive learning.
CSHL researchers document how neuroblasts make their journey through the rostral migratory stream to their target destination in the olfactory bulb.
Study reveals a motif on the 93-series compound fits into a tiny pocket within the NMDA receptor. The findings could lead to new treatment options for stroke and seizures, researchers report.
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.
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.
Abnormal activation of parvalbumin neurons in the young mouse auditory cortex manifests as a result of maternal neglect.
