According to a new study, susceptibility to depression can be affected by tweaking specific gene networks.
Researchers take inspiration from the developing brain to create improved computer algorithms.
Light exercise, such as walking, could offer hope for re-establishing some neural connections in people with MCI and Alzheimer's.
Researchers have devised a new mathematical model which helps explain how the brain's networks can learn new information while remaining stable.
White matter connectivity between the auditory processing areas and brain areas associated with reward may explain why we like, or dislike music.
Researchers have published the largest network to date of connections between neurons in the cortex, where high-level processing occurs, and have revealed several crucial elements of how networks in the brain are organized.
Researchers have discovered connections withing the brain that appear to form a communication pathway between areas that control decision making, movement and emotion. They believe cells within the network could also be potential targets for Parkinson's disease.
A new study questions traditional views of how memories are formed and stored in the brain. Additionally, researchers propose a new mechanism for learning.
Researchers have demonstrated working electronic circuits designed using methods that resemble Darwinian evolution and which are closer to the natural networks of the human brain.
