Researchers discover the activity of two specific neuron types, somatostatin and parvalbumin neurons, correlates with foraging decisions in mice.
UC Irvine scientists have discovered intriguing differences in the brains and mental processes of an extraordinary group of people who can effortlessly recall every moment of their lives since about age 10. Research offers the first scientific findings about nearly a dozen people with this highly superior autobiographical memory (HSAM).
Researchers determined how the neurons and muscles are connected in a decision-making neural network important for mating in C. elegans. The team also accurately measured the weights of those connections, i.e., an estimate of the strength with which one neuron or muscle communicates with another.
CT scans of fossilized primate skulls or skull fragments from both the Old and New Worlds may shed light on...
