Spatial attention and running influence individual neurons independently with different dynamics.
Researchers have identified a neural circuit that regulates threat response in mice.
A new study reveals the majority of V1 neurons project to higher visual areas in a non-random manner.
Researchers identified how the primary visual cortex and the lateromedial area of the cerebral cortex influence one another, and how this communication changes over rapid timespans.
Researchers have developed a new maze to help test spatial and navigational memory. The new honeycomb maze is a significant improvement over the standard Morris Water Maze, researchers report.
After only ten minutes in a novel environment, mice are able to learn the shortest escape route even if they have no experience of a threat in the location.
Researchers have identified a new rule of connectivity for neurons in the neocortex, contradicting the popular belief "neurons that fire together, wire together".
Neurons in the basolateral amygdala allow rats to respond to and recall ethological stimuli.
