A new study reports a protein which controls metamorphosis in Drosophila could play a role in reversing brain injuries.
Researchers have identified a master gene, HIF-1alpha, is involved in orchestrating the regrowth of damaged peripheral nerves.
A new study on Aplysia californica sea snails uncovers the first nervous system cells to fail during aging.
A new study reports researchers have successfully generated an artificial memory by injecting a sea snail with the RNA from another. Researchers say this approach could lead to new treatments to restore memory and alter traumatic memories in humans.
Contradicting conventional thought, researchers find neurons associated with processing touch sensations do not simply respond to distinct types of touch. Instead, these neurons respond to many types of touch, and to varying degrees.
A new study investigates how neurons get their branching shapes.
Time plays a key role when it comes to Weber's Law.
Researchers attempt to improve robot behavior by means of perception models closer to those of humans. One of the experiments involves a robot simulation in which an agent has to discriminate between what we could call an acne pimple and a bite or lump on the skin.
A new study reports long term memories might not be stored in synapses, as was previously thought.
