A new study reveals caffeine therapy appears to have benefits for healthy brain development in children born prematurely. Researchers report preterm babies given caffeine therapy had better cognitive scores, reduced odds of cerebral palsy and less hearing impairments as toddlers.
The thickness of the brain's neocortex influences how individual neurons process information, a new study reveals.
Human dendrites have different electrical properties from those of other species, a new study reveals. Researchers report electrical signals weaken more as they flow along human dendrites, allowing small sections of dendrites to behave independently from the rest of the neuron.
Researchers say homeostatic synaptic plasticity facilitates Hebbian plasticity, influencing memory formation and learning.
Researchers report dendritic learning leads to a universal phenomenon that all brains are composed of the same wide spectrum of links.

Researchers have developed a new machine learning algorithm that can autonomously and efficiently identify dendritic spines with 90% accuracy.
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.
A new study challenges long held beliefs about how learning occurs. Researchers suggest learning occurs in dendrites that are in closer proximity to neurons, as opposed to occurring solely in synapses.
Researchers report a drug used to slow cognitive decline in Alzheimer's disease may help to reverse memory and learning problems in teens who binge drink.
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.
