Columbia team harnesses powerful technology to uncover never-before-seen details of the nervous system, demonstrating SCAPE's broad potential to decipher the brain.
A new study reveals the somatosensory cortex plays a complex role in memory and reward learning.
A new mouse study reveals a small cluster of interneurons in the hippocampus help the brain remember the places that matter the most. The findings could have implications for future studies of psychiatric disorders.
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.
A new study reports altering activity in the amygdala can eliminate cravings for sweet foods. Researchers believe the findings could help develop new treatments for eating disorders.
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.
According to researchers, the brain learns to reproduce brain activity patterns that lead to reward. The findings could lead to new avenues for treating addiction and OCD, researchers report.
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.
