Findings could lead to better understanding of neurodevelopmental and neurological disorders, such as autism and epilepsy.
A new study provides insight into how synapses are formed in cortical neurons during early postnatal stages.
Computational power is amplified in the brain by newly discovered action potentials in dendrites.
A new study reports on how a single instance of extreme stress can lead to long term neurological changes and trauma.
A new study reveals long term alcohol use is much more damaging to the brain than marijuana. Researchers reveal long term alcohol use is linked to a decrease in both white and gray matter integrity in the hippocampus. However, no such decrease is associated with long term cannabis use.
Longer and more intense rehabilitation following stroke or TBI may produce greater benefits for recovery, a new study reports.
A lack of oxygen as a result of preterm birth does not cause hippocampal neurons to die but does impair hippocampal development. Hypoxia causes hippocampal cells to fail to mature normally, causing a reduction in long-term potentiation and impaired learning.
A new study investigates how neurons get their branching shapes.
