Axon pruning becomes reactivated in neurodegenerative diseases, a new study finds.
A new mouse model shows that when more of a specific molecule moves to different parts of a neuron, it can lead to behaviors that resemble aspects of human ASD.
Cancer treatment vaccine research leads to remission in a child with a relapsed neuroblastoma.
A new study reveals psychedelic substances may have a neuroprotective role when it comes to inflammation. Researchers also report psychedelics can alter signaling pathways associated with neuroplasticity.
Frequently, as many as one thousand signals rain down on a single neuron simultaneously. To ensure that precise signals are delivered, the brain possesses a sophisticated inhibitory system. Scientists have now illuminated how this system works.
A new study finds protein synthesis in dendrites could be responsible for long-term memory formation in the brain, in addition to other functions.
A new study provides additional insight into how the brain stores and encodes new information.
A new study reveals the brains of higher IQ people tend to have leaner, yet more efficient neural connections. Researchers report, the more intelligent a person, the fewer dendrites they have in their cerebral cortex.
Researchers have identified a mechanism within the cholinergic system that underlies our ability to rapidly focus attention.
