A neural circuit that decodes the start, duration and sudden change of speed of locomotion has been identified.
Study reveals vitamin B12 deficiency doesn't just lead to anemia in children, it also hinders brain development and motor function.
A study of fruit flies reveals how the insects retain neural circuits for certain motor functions while their edge on other functions declines as a result of aging.
The hand knob area of the premotor cortex operates across a wide range of motor functions and body areas.
A newly developed artificial neural connection device allows new cortical sites, previously not associated with limb movements, to swiftly regain the control of a paralyzed hand.
Researchers have identified a molecule that causes the decline of motor function and increased frailty in nematodes. Targeting the molecule with paxilline helps improve motor function and longevity.
A new study reports the serotonin system is made up of multiple parallel pathways that affect the brain in different, and sometimes opposing, ways.
Researchers report Huntington's disease is not only a neurodegenerative disease, it is also a disease that affects muscle tissues.
A new study reports continued heavy drinking in older people is associated with poor global cognitive and motor functions.
