Findings could have implications for new avenues of research for a range of neurodegenerative diseases including ALS and Alzheimer's.
SARS_CoV_2, the virus responsible for COVID-19 infects and replicates in astrocytes, reducing neural viability.
A study of combo jellies reveals the type of messenger that likely functioned in the ancestral nervous system.
When learning how to coordinate a new movement, the nervous system first explores and evaluates many different coordinated patterns. With experience, the nervous system then adapts specific aspects of movements and simultaneously decreases pattern variability.
Study reveals vitamin B12 deficiency doesn't just lead to anemia in children, it also hinders brain development and motor function.
Study reveals the strength of the connection between the brain and internal organs is associated with how a person feels about their appearance. Weaker brain responses to the gut and heart were linked to greater levels of body shame and weight preoccupation.
Researchers have identified a direct cellular interaction between the nervous system and the immune system. Pain sensing neurons around the lymph nodes can modulate lymph node activity.
Researchers have identified a novel neural network in fruit flies that converts external stimuli of varying intensity into decisions about whether to act.
Glial cells not only control the speed of nerve conduction, but they also influence the precision of signal transduction.
