A new software framework incorporates dendritic properties and mechanisms into large-scale neural network models.
Synaptic pruning occurs as a result of mechanical tearing, a new study reveals.
The origin of the axon differs between primates and non-primates in the architecture of neurons, a new study reports.
Experimental observations conclude learning is mainly performed by neural dendrite trees as opposed to modifying solely through the strength of the synapses, as previously believed.
Different types of dendrites process incoming information in different ways before sending it to the body of the neuron.
