Researchers show astrocytes are vital in cognitive function.
Researchers have identified a possible biomarker that could help expedite ASD diagnosis in children. The study revealed children with autism have lower frequency motor related gamma oscillations.
Using a unique mouse model, researchers show cognitive deficits associated with schizophrenia may be reversible.
Multisensory gamma wave stimulation improves recognition and spatial memory, in addition to reducing amyloid in the auditory cortex and hippocampal CA1 areas of mice. Findings suggest such sensory stimulation boosts hippocampal function and reduces Alzheimer's linked pathologies throughout the neocortex.
By manipulating the activity of a group of neurons in the medial prefrontal cortex, researchers were able to enhance attention in mice.
A new mathematical model can predict how the brain reacts when learning a rhythmic beat. The model shows how a neural network can act as a 'neural metronome' by estimating time intervals between beats within tens of milliseconds. The metronome relies on gamma oscillations to keep track of time.
