The brain naturally implements principles of calculus and integrated learned rules of life with sensory information to guide motor plans and actions.
Researchers reveal how neurons set up and sustain the vital infrastructure that allows for seamless neurotransmission.
A new computer model shows the beneficial effects of deep brain stimulation arise from how it interrupts the cycle promoting runway beta in a circuit loop between the subthalamic nucleus and striatum.
New findings reveal how anesthesia-induced unconsciousness differs from normal sleep in relation to delta wave activity in the brain.
Brain mapping study reveals memory engrams are widely distributed throughout the brain, including among regions not previously realized.
Researchers measured how brain waves travel in the prefrontal cortex during working memory tasks.
Researchers have developed a new method that vastly improves the imaging of the structures of neural connections using standard confocal microscopes.
Just one protein situated on the synapse can profoundly alter how some neurons communicate and implement plasticity.
A new study reveals the complex architecture of a decision-making circuit in the brains of C. elegans that prompts them to forage for food or stop once a source has been found.
While some types of excitatory neurons respond to images and represent them in the visual cortex, the activity of two types of inhibitory interneurons combine in a circuit to reinforce visual stability and reliability.
A new statistical model lays groundwork for understanding how ketamine induces an anesthetic response, steps to monitor unconscious patients, and provides new information about brain activity while unconscious.
While the visual cortex stores individual images in the brain, the hippocampus plays a significant role in the ability to recognize a sequence of images.
