Coronavirus can cause several significant neurological disorders, and the pandemic has been linked to a rise in people reporting mental health problems such as depression and anxiety. Researchers examine how COVID-19 affects brain and mental health and provides some techniques which can help to improve well-being during the pandemic.
A new study reports long distance neural connections can target pools of stem cells in their niche and stimulate them to produce subtypes of olfactory bulb neurons.
A new study sheds light on how exposure to an environmental toxin can have implications for the developing brain.
CSHL researchers document how neuroblasts make their journey through the rostral migratory stream to their target destination in the olfactory bulb.
Researchers have developed an innovative approach to identifying novel cellular targets and pathways involved in wiring adult born neurons into existing brain circuits.
Loss of the sense of smell is a common symptom of Parkinson's disease that often precedes motor deficits. A new study may provide clues as to why the sense of smell diminishes in people with Parkinson's.
Researchers discover memories of specific odors depend upon the brain's ability to learn, process and recall accurately during slow wave sleep.
Microglia help limit infection to the olfactory bulb and protects neurons from damage that could occur as a result of viral infection.
The olfactory epithelium may be a hub for neurogenesis.
