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.
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.
Anterior cingulate cortex neurons project connections to the superior colliculus. The superior colliculus carries out reflexive movements. The study finds the purpose of the ACC neurons connections to the SC is to over-rider the SC when executive control is essential.
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.
Researchers reveal how neurons set up and sustain the vital infrastructure that allows for seamless neurotransmission.
Structural and functional coupling in visual areas of the mouse brain can be detected at sub-cellular resolution in vitro.
In both human cell and mouse models of Huntington's disease, RNA from mitochondria was misplaced within spiny projection neurons. The stray RNAs, which looked different to cells than RNA derived from the cell nucleus, trigger an immune reaction that can lead to striatal cell type vulnerability.
A new study reveals the role the locus coeruleus plays in learning, behavior, and mental health.
Researchers have developed a new method that vastly improves the imaging of the structures of neural connections using standard confocal microscopes.
New studies are set to explore how gene expression alters the brain's response to drug abuse, and to screen for genes that could help brain cells withstand Parkinson's disease.
