Light exercise, such as walking, could offer hope for re-establishing some neural connections in people with MCI and Alzheimer's.
A new study reports that when at rest, neural networks are ready to execute even the simplest of behaviors and movements.
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.
Researchers use a novel co-culturing method to create functional circuits that model Huntington's disease and find new clues to potential treatment approaches.
Researchers have been able to successfully reverse memory loss in mice following the discovery about a key mechanism that underlies the loss of neuronal connectivity.
Understanding how babies learn to walk may help to improve rehabilitation treatments for those with cerebral palsy and spinal cord injuries.
Researchers have singled and taken control of a circuit in mouse brains in order to dial the animal's mood up or down.
According to a new study, susceptibility to depression can be affected by tweaking specific gene networks.
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.
