A new rodent study uncovers a neural circuit in the brain that appears to govern pain-induced anhedonia. Altering the activity of this circuit restored motivation in pre-clinical models of pain.
Study finds a link between post-traumatic brain activity and an increase in anxiety symptoms six months after a traumatic event.
Bumetanide, an FDA-approved potent diuretic used to treat fluid retention caused by heart, kidney, and liver disease may lower the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease for those with a genetic predisposition.
Analyzing the gene activity of 66,000 cells from human brain tissue, researchers generated a comprehensive map of cell types associated with brain lesions in multiple sclerosis, and their gene expression patterns and interactions.
Study reveals how decisions based on visual information, which involves a complex stream of data flowing forwards and backward along the visual pathways, are broadcast widely to neurons in the visual system, including those not involved in the decision-making process.
Eating disorder behaviors are reinforced due to changes in the brain's reward response processes and alterations in the food intake control network.
A new study sheds light on visual development and learning in children. Researchers found cortical recycling in the ventral temporal cortex reflects adjustments to changing visual demands throughout childhood.
The resting brain repeatedly and rapidly replays faster memories of what a person has recently learned and practiced. The more a person replays the memory during rest, the better they become during subsequent sessions where they practice their newly learned skill.
A new brain-computer interface could help thousands of people with neurodegenerative disorders and spinal cord injuries the ability to regain communication skills. The BCI, in combination with a machine learning algorithm, can generate words on a screen, based on a person thinking about writing the word.
Researchers have succeeded in wirelessly recording both deep and surface human brain activity for an extended period of time while the patient was in their home environment.
