Researchers implant optogenetic electronic device into mouse brains, stimulating dopamine producing neurons by emitting light.
Researchers have developed a fiber-optic, two-photon optogenetic simulator which can be used to stimulate a light sensitive protein introduced into neurons and living cells in the brain. The researchers suggest this technology would be a useful tool for the BRAIN mapping initiative.
Researchers were able to visualize neuronal activity, thanks to a new protein which fluoresces brightly each time it senses calcium.
Researchers identify circuitry in the brain which drives compulsive drinking in rats, and likely plays a similar role in humans.
Neuroscientists appear to have implanted memories in mice and appear to have located where the brain stores memory traces, both false and authentic.
Researchers have pinpointed the precise cellular connections responsible for triggering overeating.
Researchers discover a link between neural activity in the lateral hypothalamus and the state of REM sleep.
VIP interneurons specialize in inhibiting other inhibitory neurons in multiple regions of the cerebral cortex under specific behavioral conditions, a new study shows.
