A new study upends traditional models of how the brain constructs interpretations of the outside world, revealing that the brain uses a reverse order of processing to recall visual information.
In early stages of ALS, autophagy helps to suppress disease progression, but accelerates the spread as the disease enters into later stages, researchers report.
A lack of adaptability in hippocampal place cells could be key to memory deficits in schizophrenia, researchers report.
Researchers report becoming consciously aware of a decision conforms to the same mechanism the brain goes through to complete a simple decision.
A new study sheds light on how neurons in the motor cortex communicate with muscles and drive motion. Using optogenetics, the researchers discovered the motor cortex communicates with muscles differently, depending on the type of movement an animal makes.
Researchers have identified a gene that allows serotonin neurons to spread their branches throughout the brain. Mice lacking this gene showed entangled neuron branches and signs of depression.
