A new study presents evidence that neurons maintain correlated levels of mRNA to ensure a consistent ratio of ion channels.
Researchers have optimized optogenetics to map the neural circuits of the rodent brain with single neuron resolution.
Axon pruning becomes reactivated in neurodegenerative diseases, a new study finds.
Researchers propose highly selective neural representations are well suited to co-activating multiple things at the same time in short terms memory.
Cornell researchers have identified regions of a fish brain that reveal the basic circuitry for how all vertebrates, including humans,...
Researchers suggest the overexpression of a protein called alpha-synuclein appears to disrupt vital recycling processes in neurons. The study may have major implications for more fully understanding the causes and mechanisms of Parkinson’s disease.
Researchers have made an important discovery about the mechanisms behind learning and memory. Depending on the number of synapses, and their proximity, information is processed and stored differently.
Scientists generated statistical instances of the micro-connectome, containing over 10 million neurons. The model spans five orders of magnitude and contains 88 billion synaptic connections.
