Study identifies a population of neurons in an area of the midbrain, called the red nucleus, that alter when fine motor skills are learned. The more an action is practiced, the stronger the connections between these neurons become.
Researchers have mapped the relationship of two types of neurons implicated in psychiatric and movement disorder. The findings could lead to new treatments for a range of disorders from depression to Parkinson's disease.
A multiyear study reveals, contrary to expectations, numbers and ratios of three major inhibitory cell types vary stereo-typically across different cortical parts. Additionally, researchers identified 11 subcortical areas with gender specific differences in mice.
Researchers have discovered a link between specific neural circuits to distinct behavioral symptoms of depression. The study, published in Cell, reports altering the networks helped to improve symptoms such as social withdrawal and helplessness.
Newly identified neurons in the reticular thalamus could help shed light on the link between seizures and psychiatric disorders such as ADHD and schizophrenia, a new study reports.
Researchers have developed a new method that combines genetic markers and virus particles to target GABA cell types with a high degree of specificity.
A new study reports the loss of mGluR5 receptors in the brain could be responsible for the development of autism and schizophrenia.
A new paper hypothesizes that a particular type of interneuron may influence responses in a context dependent manner.
