Researchers have identified a novel population of neurons in the temporal pole that links facial perception to long-term memory.
Hippocampal dopamine 2 receptors, cells known to play a role in regulating memory, help curb the impulse to overeat.
A new study provides evidence that population density changes how individuals act.
Researchers from Rockefeller University have identified what they claim to be 'remarkable' differences between the way the male and female brains respond to stress.
Synthesizing a human embryo from stem cells and using gene editing to insert the Huntingtin gene, researchers found the mutation affected the size of germ layers compared to the control embryos. Findings suggest Huntington's disease may be a neurodevelopmental disorder that presents as a neurodegenerative disease later
Researchers have identified a pathway involving a protein called Rab35 in glioblastoma brain cancer. The study reports restoring the activity of Rab35 could have therapeutic benefits for those with glioblastoma.
A new study reports a genetic predisposition in combination with early life stress appear to be more detrimental to males over females and may produce the social avoidance often associated with autism spectrum disorders.
Activity of the c-Fos gene begins the increase on the ninth day of exposure to antidepressants. By day 14, mice showed behavioral changes associated with SSRI use. This may explain why suicide rates drop after nine days of treatment, and symptoms of depression improve after three weeks.
Researchers provide new evidence of brain plasticity. A new study reveals visual cortex neurons sprout new axons and shed some old ones as animals improve at perceptual learning tasks.
Rockefeller University researchers reveal Huntington's neurons are much larger than healthy cells.
