Vocal training of older rats reduces some of the voice problems associated with aging, new research suggests. The findings could help treat people with presbyphonia.
Researchers have been able to identify and deactivate a brain pathway liked to memories associated with alcohol cravings in rats.
New research shows brain damage caused by the loss of a single copy of a gene during early neurodevelopment can cause a permanent behavioral and intellectual problems.
Genes alone don't determine how the cerebral cortex grows into separate functional areas. Input from the thalamus is also crucially required, a new study suggests.
BigBrain, a 3-D reconstruction of a complete human brain, shows the brain's anatomy in microscopic detail.
Researchers have identified a molecular program which spurs the growth of neuronal output connections.
Using a line of genetically modified mice, researchers discover boosting acetylcholine can disturb cognitive function.
Researchers develop a flexible carbon-nanotube 'harpoon' to study individual brain neurons. The 'brain harpoon' harnesses the electromechanical properties of carbon nanotubes to capture the electrical signals generated by single neurons.
Examining the brains of Drosophila fruit flies, researchers discover a novel stem cell mechanism which could help explain how neurons form in humans.
A new study reveals how the production of p75NTR protein oscillates in time with the body's natural circadian rhythm and how these oscillations help regulate vital metabolic functions. The findings offer an insight into how circadian rhythm helps maintain the body's overall metabolic health.
