Changes in microglia underlie depressive symptoms brought on by exposure to chronic stress, a new study reports.
MicroRNA-132 regulates neurogenesis in the hippocampus, according to both mouse and human tissue studies. Restoring levels of microRNA-132 in mouse models of Alzheimer's disease reduces neurogenetic deficits and restores cognitive abilities, researchers say.
According to a new mouse study, antibiotics that are strong enough to kill gut bacteria can also halt the growth of hippocampal neurons.
Adult born granule cells appear to play a key role in memory encoding, a new study reports.
University of Queensland researchers report they have discovered evidence of neurogenesis in the amygdala. Researchers say their findings could help develop new avenues of treatment for fear processing disorders.
Adult born neurons are essential for synaptic structural remodeling and memory consolidation during REM sleep, a new mouse study found.
According to a new study, sustained aerobic exercise, such as running, appears to increase hippocampal neurogenesis in the adult brain.
A new series of studies review the roles neuroplasticity and neurogenesis play in alcohol addiction and recovery.
