VIP interneurons specialize in inhibiting other inhibitory neurons in multiple regions of the cerebral cortex under specific behavioral conditions, a new study shows.
According to a new study, researchers use optogenetic technology to manipulate neural circuitry and leave mice unable to sense rough or smooth surfaces.
Long-term memories remain 'silent' for about 2 weeks before reaching a mature state, a new study reports.
A new study challenges the most influential textbook explanation of how the mammalian brain detects when the body is becoming too warm.
Newly identified neurons in the reticular thalamus could help shed light on the link between seizures and psychiatric disorders such as ADHD and schizophrenia, a new study reports.
Researchers capture a brain signal underlying memory transfer.
Researchers show freezing behavior associated with feat is associated with an internally generated brain state that manifests in sustained 4 Hz oscillatory dynamics in the dorsal medial prefrontal cortex-basolateral amygdala circuits.
Researchers have identified a mechanism that helps rouse the brains of mice suffering from simulated sleep apnea. The findings could help develop new treatments for people with obstructive sleep apnea and provide new insights into SIDS.
Long term stimulation of the serotonin system makes mice more active, a new study reports.
Researchers have created a new tool that could revolutionize optogenetics research.
