A new computational model sheds light on the complexity of smell identification. Researchers report different brains know how to associate new similar odors, so long as they have experienced an overlap in odors over their lifetime.
Researchers say findings about how dopamine affects the initiation of movement could pave the way for the development of new treatments for Parkinson's and other movement related disorders.
In early stages of ALS, autophagy helps to suppress disease progression, but accelerates the spread as the disease enters into later stages, researchers report.
The anterior cingulate cortex plays a key role in how the brain can simulate the results of different actions and make the best decisions.
Cannabis use during youth enhances sensitivity to cocaine from the first exposure, a new rat study finds.
A new auditory attention decoding device allows people to selectively hear specific people in crowded environments.
A new study reports the CA2 region of the hippocampus controls both higher order cognition, like social memory, and instinctual behaviors, such as aggression. The findings could shed light on why abnormal social behaviors may occur in schizophrenia and other psychiatric illnesses.
The TBK1 gene regulates the disease progression of ALS in mouse models of the neurodegenerative disease. Loss of the TBK1 gene in motor neurons increases SOD1 aggregation and accelerates the onset of the disease.
Our brains need only perform a few fast statistical calculations to detect the key properties of an unknown object. Findings challenge existing views of how our brains extract and learn about our environment.
Columbia team harnesses powerful technology to uncover never-before-seen details of the nervous system, demonstrating SCAPE's broad potential to decipher the brain.
Glioma brain tumors disrupt neural synchrony between bilateral cortical regions. The findings provide new insight into the association between seizures and tumor progression.
