Researchers report on how specific neurons can process sensory information about temperature and facilitate a change in behavior to adapt to the climate.
A transcranial magnetic stimulation study revealed the motor cortex may play a role in translating foreign language words into one's native tongue.
A new mouse study reveals a brain circuit that may enable high speed back and forth conversation. The findings could help shed new light on the causes of speech disorders.
Researchers have successfully mapped brain to spinal cord neural connections that help drive voluntary movement. The map could be beneficial in developing new strategies to treat spinal cord damage.
Using optogenetics to dampen delta waves of rats during sleep resulted in weaker memory reactivation and promoted forgetting. The findings could have significant implications for treating PTSD in humans.
A new study reveals a lack of dopamine transmission via D1 receptors disrupts information flow in the basal ganglia and can cause difficulty in initiating voluntary movements for Parkinson's patients.
Researchers investigate how laughter improves both mental and physical well-being.
Study identifies a population of neurons in an area of the midbrain, called the red nucleus, that alter when fine motor skills are learned. The more an action is practiced, the stronger the connections between these neurons become.
