Researchers have identified novel neural pathways that help regulate sleep and wakefulness.
Researchers report alcohol produces the same neural and molecular changes as drugs that have proven to be rapidly effective antidepressants.
Researchers report newborn granule cells in the dentate gyrus become less excitable after three weeks. The loss of excitability is crucial for the functioning of mature neurons.
New discoveries about neuroplasticity following vision loss could improve patient susceptibility to sensory prosthetics.
A visual test may be a new tool in the diagnosis of autism. Individuals on the autism spectrum are slower to dampen neural activity in response to visual stimuli in the brain. Using EEG data collected from the visual region, researchers could predict with 87% accuracy whether or not a person had ASD.
A new study provides deeper understanding of the mechanisms the brain uses to sync up for conscious thought.
