Researchers present an all-atom molecular dynamic simulation of synaptic vesicle fusion.
Researchers characterize a novel neural population within the striatum that appears to be responsible for the interplay between acetylcholine and GABA.
A new study in mice finds microglia help neurons grow synapses critical for cognitive function.
Different types of dendrites process incoming information in different ways before sending it to the body of the neuron.
Amyloid precursor protein accumulated with an excess of presynaptic proteins, whereas post synaptic proteins were depleted.
Study reveals the specific changes that occur in the brains of mice exposed to cocaine. The findings shed new light on the role of dopamine in addiction, and provide new insight into dopamine transmission in the brain.
Alterations in synapses may help explain how memories form and why certain types of memories are stronger than others.
Older adults who remain active have more of a class of proteins that enhance synapses to help maintain healthy cognitive function.
Researchers have identified a specific form of autism marked by the presence of an excessive amount of synapses in the cerebral cortex. The abnormality may be linked to aberrant mTOR protein activity, a regulator of synapse production.
A new study reveals the mechanisms by which neurons and astrocytes work together to form synapses.
