Study identifies the role a specific protein plays in regulating the development of inhibitory synapses in the hippocampus in the context of anxiety-related behaviors.
Reconstituting the amount of chondroitin 6-sulphate to perineuronal nets completely restored memory and brain plasticity in aging mice to a similar level as seen in younger animals, a new study reports. The findings could lead to new therapies to restore age-related memory loss in older humans.
A study of people learning to read braille reveals how white matter reorganizes itself across different brain regions and timeframes to meet the brain's needs.
Immersive virtual reality enhances theta and eta waves in the hippocampus, improving memory, learning and neuroplasticity.
The apical intercalated cell cluster (apITC), a specialized portion of inhibitory circuitry in the amygdala, has rich connectivity and plays a unique role in modulating synaptic plasticity.
Patients with Corpus Callosum Dysgenesis (CCD), a genetic condition marked by incomplete development of the connecting structures between the brain hemispheres, have distinct reconfiguration of their neural connections, researchers report.
Study sheds new light on the role noncoded RNAs play at the synapse.
Astrocytes help transition the brain from a highly plastic state to one that is more stable.
