New findings reveal how anesthesia-induced unconsciousness differs from normal sleep in relation to delta wave activity in the brain.
Propofol, the commonly used anesthetic, alters and controls the dynamics of the brain's rhythms. The findings can help doctors better monitor patients under anesthesia with the aid of EEG.
Researchers reveal how neurons set up and sustain the vital infrastructure that allows for seamless neurotransmission.
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.
Just one protein situated on the synapse can profoundly alter how some neurons communicate and implement plasticity.
Researchers have developed a new method that vastly improves the imaging of the structures of neural connections using standard confocal microscopes.
The brain naturally implements principles of calculus and integrated learned rules of life with sensory information to guide motor plans and actions.
As novel visual patterns become familiar, stark changes occur in the visual cortex. Gamma rhythms give way to low-wave beta waves, and the neural activity switches from PV neurons in favor of inhibitory SOM neurons.
Study provides new insight into how brain waves control the flow of information through the cortex.
A newly developed artificial intelligence algorithm can accurately and reliably assess unconsciousness in patients under anesthesia based on brain activity.
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.
