A new study reports researchers have successfully generated an artificial memory by injecting a sea snail with the RNA from another. Researchers say this approach could lead to new treatments to restore memory and alter traumatic memories in humans.
Researchers report transplanting altered neural stem cells into the brains of mice genetically engineered to exhibit symptoms of ALS, delayed the progression of the disease and extended lifespan.
A new study reveals how interneurons emerge and diversify in the brain.
Using electrochemical stimulation and robot assisted rehabilitation techniques, researchers restore walking ability in a paraplegic rat. The study reports reorganization of neural branching in the reticular formation leads to new connections and is key to motor skill recovery.
New research reports the first ambulatory creatures may have remained under water. Researchers report modern descendants of these creatures exhibit walking behaviors on the ocean floor.
Researchers report the C9ORF72 genetic mutation can lead to toxicity in neurons, causing 10 percent of all ALS cases and 10 percent of FTD cases.
A new study sheds light on key aspects of nervous system development.
