When the soma of specific neurons is active, the dendrites of the same neuron are also active, even when animals are not engaged in a cognitively demanding task.
The secretory pathway delivery of cannabinoid type 1 receptor is axonally based, and surface expressed CB1R is more stable in axons than dendrites.
Vitamin D causes dendritic cells to produce more CD31, hindering the activation of T cells. The study sheds light on how vitamin D deficiency regulates the immune system and can lead to autoimmune diseases, like multiple sclerosis.
The formation of prefrontal cortex dendritic spine formation sustains the remission of depressive related symptoms and behaviors following ketamine treatment by restoring lost spines.
A new study reveals the somatosensory cortex plays a complex role in memory and reward learning.
Researchers have developed a new technique that helps identify the functional properties of individual synapses that link the two hemispheres of the brain.
A new study reports exposure to cannabis and stress during the teenage years may result in an increased risk of developing anxiety disorders later in life.
Researchers have identified a mechanism within the cholinergic system that underlies our ability to rapidly focus attention.
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.
