Researchers have identified a gene that plays a vital role in the production of neurons and glial cells in the brain.
A new study reveals hippocampal place cells randomly replay firing patterns during sleep, helping the brain to consolidate movement memories.
Ketamine and exposure to 60-hertz flickering light show promise as a potentially new, non-invasive therapy to help rejuvenate the aging brain.
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.
Researchers shed light on the role Synaptotagmin 7 plays in neurotransmission in inhibitory synapses.
