Using machine learning, researchers have created a comprehensive brain map that links different groups of neurons to specific behaviors in fruit fly brains. The study, published in Cell, reports the AI used more than 225 days of video footage to help create the map. Left in human hands, the work would have taken an estimated 3,800 years to complete.
According to a new Nature study, in order for our taste system to work, the connection between neurons and taste bud cells have to rewire correctly each time.
A new 3D protein structure helps researchers to better understand the rapid action of neurotransmission.
Much like other animals, the upside-down jellyfish enters into sleep. However, unlike other animals, the jellyfish has no central nervous system. Researchers believe the need to sleep evolved before the emergence of a central nervous system.
A pre-clinical mouse study may provide an exciting new step toward developing new treatment approaches for Fragile X.
New probe will provide researchers with a clearer picture of how neurons and different parts of the brain work together to process information.
