During pregnancy, the maternal environment has a dominant influence on the length of the neurogenic period and the number of upper-layer neurons produced. The study reveals a link between the maternal environment and embryonic cortical neurogenesis in-vitro.
Contrary to a popular theory, researchers discover the brain remains connected during non-REM sleep. The study reports not all forms of communication within the cerebral cortex are disrupted during this sleep phase.
A new study demonstrates changes in cortical neurotransmission due to hormones at puberty.
An experiment aimed to investigate how the brain interprets artificial touch sensation from a finger neuroprosthesis, has revealed new information for developing way to measure brain health.
GABAergic interneuron excitation is essential for network activity in the hippocampus of the fetal brain.
