The SLK protein plays a key role in neuron excitability and sensitivity, researchers report.
New findings about neural activity in the sensorimotor cortex may aid in the development of neuroprosthetics to help compensate for neuronal dysfunctions.
Oligodendrocyte precursor cells (OPCs) play a significant role in synaptic pruning, a new study reveals.
The autonomic nervous system has the ability to spontaneously restore muscle function following nerve injury.
Researchers have developed a comprehensive "toolbox" to establish that the mobility of receptors exists in intact brain tissue, and this mobility is critical for certain types of memory.
Researchers identified a new mechanism by which auditory sensitivity is regulated. The mechanism can temporarily reduce sensitivity in the auditory system to protect itself from loud sounds that can cause hearing damage.
Researchers report they have identified the first natural light-gated potassium channel-rhodopsins.
A new study of the hippocampus reveals immature, plastic neurons are present in significant numbers during the entire lifespan. The findings shed new light on neuroplasticity.
