A new study sheds light on the movement of neurons throughout the brain during fetal development. Researchers also found the two hemispheres of the human cortex separated earlier in development than previously thought.
Motor system neurons not only control movement, they also incite action.
Wolframin-expressing excitatory neurons (WFS1) are more vulnerable in the entorhinal cortex.WFS1 may reduce tau-pathology and neurodegeneration via the regulation of stress response to the abnormal buildup of tau aggregates and the downstream protein degradation pathway.
Researchers have released a whole-brain projectome consisting of over 6,000 single neurons in the mouse prefrontal cortex.
Study identified a complete series of ten factors that regulate the development of neurons in a fly's visual system, shedding light on the order in which these neurons develop.
Electrical synapses occur in almost every brain region and can influence the stability and function of individual neurons.
A ventral tegmental area dopamine neuron circuit that projects to the basolateral amygdala selectively controls anxiety-like behaviors, but not depression-like behaviors.
Study reveals axon density is lower than previously believed between distant regions of the brain.
A new study in mice finds microglia help neurons grow synapses critical for cognitive function.
