Researchers create a fully functional neuron using organic bioelectronics. The artificial neuron is able to mimic the function of human neurons.
Researchers have developed a new dye that can be used to observe the activity of neurons in the brain.
A new study describes how stimulating a single region of the brain affects the activation of other regions.
Two activities support the brain's ability to establish reliable connections in the presence of significant biological background noise.
A new study reports cholinergic neurons in the basal forebrain respond to reward and punishment with unusual speed and precision.
Researchers have identified two groups of serotonin neurons that may help to suppress aggression in mice.
Researchers have identified a bio-chemical circuit that supports neuron-microglia communication. When neurons are active, they release ATP. Microglia sense extracellular ATP and the compound draws the immune cell toward the neuron.
In a mouse model of autism, researchers have successfully restored social behavior with the help of brain stimulation. Researchers are now considering if it would be feasible to treat children on the autism spectrum with similar neuromodulation techniques.
A new study shows how dopamine can help change the flow of information in the brain.
