The lateral septum encodes speed and acceleration information as an animal navigates and learns how to obtain a reward from its environment.
A new study challenges existing theories about spinal cord neurons. New findings suggest neurological signals originate from a major, scattered network of cells that send signals to only a few other neurons.
The medial prefrontal cortex persistently encodes value based decision variables.
Music, movement and arts can help improve mathematical skills for children who find working with numbers difficult.
Neurons in the motor cortex of rats fall into two categories, those that are externally focused and relay information to other parts of the body, and those that are internally focused. When inhibition is increased, the externally focused neurons switch to internally focused cells.

A minimally invasive brain implant is to be tested on humans for the first time. The device, named Stentrode, will be placed in blood vessels in the motor cortex, and researchers believe it will help improve movement and speech for those with a range of neurological disorders.
Virtual reality can help recalibrate time perception and sensorimotor actions. Researchers believe the technology could help in the treatment of ASD, Parkinson's disease and schizophrenia.
A new study reveals hippocampal place cells randomly replay firing patterns during sleep, helping the brain to consolidate movement memories.
According to researchers, physical coordination is more beneficial in larger groups. The findings could help improve current physical rehabilitation techniques by training patients in groups to improve movement skills.
