Study points to the evolutionary and developmental similarities between sensory cells in the inner ear and skin.
Researchers have successfully recreated the whisker map a mouse creates of its surroundings to help it navigate the world, catch food and avoid predators.
Studying bats, researchers discover how the sense of touch plays a key role in powered flight.
Researchers electronically linked the brains of pairs of rats for the first time, enabling them to communicate directly to solve simple behavioral puzzles. A further test of this work successfully linked the brains of two animals thousands of miles apart - one in Durham, N.C., and one in Natal, Brazil.
A new study reveals how interneurons emerge and diversify in the brain.
Researchers provide a comprehensive map of transport in mammalian axons.
Fenofibrate, an FDA-approved drug commonly used to treat high cholesterol, activated support cells around sensory neurons in mouse models of spinal cord injury, helping them regrow twice as fast as a placebo.
