Researchers have solves a longstanding mystery relating to perineuronal nets, giving rise to potential new treatments for epilepsy. The study reports the nets modulate electrical impulses in the brain and seizures can occur if perineuronal networks are dissolved.
Researchers report pyramidal neurons in the basolateral amygdala help us to recognize and categorize foods.
Researchers have identified a molecular mechanism that contributes to a slowed maturation of fast spiking neurons. The developmental delay has been implicated in Fragile X. However, researchers were able to restore normal maturation speed by administering an activator of the TrkB protein.
Using a unique mouse model, researchers show cognitive deficits associated with schizophrenia may be reversible.
