A new study sheds light into a possible cause of learning difficulties in Down syndrome.
SCN2A, a gene commonly associated with intellectual ability, plays an essential role in memory formation and replay, a new study reports.
A new study reports the hippocampus puts events into sequence by changing the neural code in the rat brain.
Researchers observed hippocampal place cell changes in animal experiments of cue-poor and cue-rich spatial environments. The findings have implications for the treatment of brain disorders and the development of new AI technologies.
