Optimistic brains and pessimistic brains were compared in a brain-imaging study of the posterior parietal cortex, where it is believed sensory stimuli are transformed into movement plans.
Researchers have developed a camera system that mimics the bee eye. The artificial bee eyes allow the researchers to take images that are believed to be similar to the bee's viewpoint.
Grid cells have been found in the presubiculum and parasubiculum of the rat brain.
Deleting the enzyme PTEN allowed neurology researchers to regenerate corticospinal tract neurons after spinal cord injuries in rodents.
UC Irvine researchers have identified the perforant path in humans with the diffusion tensor imaging technique.
UCL neuroscientists have shown that a single neuron, and even a single dendrite, can respond differently to unique sequences of input.
This research shows that the loss of connections in the corpus collosum could be partly responsible for slower response times seen in older animals and humans due to too much crosstalk and confusion between the brain hemispheres.
New research points to a DNA sequence that causes the DUX4 gene to become more active in producing proteins that are toxic to muscle cells, leading to a form of muscular dystrophy.
Researchers at the UTMB, Galveston are calling for traumatic brain injury to be defined and managed as a chronic disease.
Neuroscience researchers are investigating axon clusters in order to develop a "brain atlas". The research could provide a way for clinicians to recognize groups of abnormal axon clusters. When systematically arranged into the "brain atlas", abnormal axon clusters could be used as bio-markers to diagnose neurological disorders.
