Researchers have uncovered the molecular structure of three major complexes of glutamate receptors in the hippocampus. The findings shed new light on the mechanisms behind memory and learning in the brain.
The cerebellum underwent evolutionary changes that may have contributed to the development of language, culture, and tool use in humans, a new study reveals.
Researchers have identified regions within the DNA of neurons that accumulate single-strand breaks (SSBs). The SSB accumulation appears to be unique to neurons. The findings challenge previous thoughts on the cause of DNA damage and how it could impact neurodegenerative disorders.
Researchers reveal the role hundreds of miRNAs appear to play in modulating circadian rhythm.
Researchers uncover an intimate connection between methylation and the body's circadian rhythms.
A new genetics test for COVID-19 has been developed by an international team of researchers. The full genome sequencing test can not only provide accurate results in less than two minutes, but it can also extract intricate and highly complex genetic data about the strain of the coronavirus infection.
Study reports repeats in genes associated with Fragile X syndrome normally regulate how and when proteins are made in neurons.
Telomere lengthening resulted in structural changes in the brain, including cortical thickening. By contrast, telomere shortening is associated with gray matter reduction, specifically in the precuneus.
