Researchers shed new light on neuroplasticity by sparking learning in tadpole brains. They discovered the key to neuroplasticity is how the brain generates new proteins. Findings could help deepen understanding of sensory processing in ASD.
Scripps researchers have uncovered the process that helps control neuron growth.
Researchers report taurine may help to boost remyelination in multiple sclerosis patients.
Study reveals how the mechanism for storing olfactory memories differs slightly from erasing unnecessary memories. Understanding how the brain gets rid of unimportant memories could help unlock new avenues of research to better understand memory loss in aging, researchers say.
Researchers report neurons in areas of the brain associated with memory formation can form networks in the absence of synaptic activity.
According to a new study, alcohol increases neural activity in the central amygdala.
According to researchers, deep brain stimulation reduces the desire to use heroin and rat models of addiction.
Researchers have identified a hormone that appears to trigger fat burning in the gut.
Researchers report they have developed the first stable synthetic organism that holds a pair of synthetic bases in its genetic code.
A new study reports reduced levels of Rheb result in memory loss in animal models of dementia.
A new study identifies a possible candidate to help alleviate pain and itch sensations.
