Researchers at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center report that molecular disruptions in small neurons called granule cells – located in the dentate gyrus region of the brain – caused brain seizures in mice similar to those seen in human temporal lobe epilepsy.
Researchers observe inhibitory neurons which link olfaction with cognition and memory in mice.
A new study describes the epigenetic mechanisms that underlie the development of the cerebellum.
Adult born granule cells appear to play a key role in memory encoding, a new study reports.
A new study proposes a model for how immature neurons in the dentate gyrus appear to enhance pattern separation.
Researchers report altering synaptic plasticity leads to a computational switch in a hippocampal synapse which turns the presynaptic neuron turns into “detonator” mode, causing it to fire more readily.
