By fusing a cytokine to a blood protein, researchers have developed a new therapy to help treat multiple sclerosis.
By adding a molecule that disrupts certain pathways in cells, researchers have discovered a new way to limit inflammation from adjuvants in vaccinations.
Neuroimaging study sheds new light on how we perceive colors. Activity in higher visual cortex areas matched the colors test subjects saw.
Boundary contraction may be as common as boundary extension, and whether something appears zoomed in or out depends on the properties of the image.
Patterns of functional connectivity reliably predict when people were more or less focused on a task.
Microglia may play a significant role in disrupting neurogenesis in those with Alzheimer's disease. When mice were given drugs which caused microglial cells to die, neurogenesis returned to normal.
Younger children tend to prefer urban environments, but older children tend to prefer natural settings. Findings suggest an affinity for nature develops gradually during life rather than being inherent at an early age.
The posterior parietal cortex, an area of the brain implicated in spatial awareness, plays a critical role in visual decision making.
A recurrent neural network algorithm demonstrates short-term synaptic plasticity can support short term maintenance of information, providing the memory delay period is sufficiently short.
Using CRISPR gene editing techniques, researchers create modified skin grafts that rapidly degrade cocaine and reduce drug seeking behaviors in mouse models of addiction.
