A novel, custom-built microscope allowed researchers to track the activity of a single neuron across the entire visual cortex.
Glutamate binds to the subunits of its receptor only in specific patterns. The findings upend previous belief that each subunit binds glutamate independently and points to a new level of complexity in neurotransmission and drug response.
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.
Researchers reveal how patients who received fecal transplants showed improvements in bipolar symptoms, as well as reductions in anxiety and ADHD behaviors. Fecal transplants may help in the treatment of a number of mental health disorders.
