A newly developed biodegradable microcapsule that delivers nerve growth factor guides the development of hippocampal neurons in in-vitro experiments.
Hippocampal neurons involved in Pavlovian learning shift their behavior and become more synchronized when a memory is being formed. The findings shed new light on the neurobiological mechanisms of memory and learning.
Researchers have successfully reproduced the electrical properties of biological neurons onto semiconductor implantable chips. The new artificial neurons could play a critical role in curing chronic neurological diseases.
A small set of hippocampal neurons activate for each episodic memory, a new PNAS study reports.
Findings could lead to the development of new treatments to reduce the effects of PTSD, researchers say.
New findings could pave the way for developing improved epilepsy treatments and therapies for other neurological disorders.
Researchers identify compounds that stabilize retromer protein complex and protects neurons from amyloid-beta.
