Scientists find the chemical P7C3 grows new neuronal growth within the dentate gyrus and improves learning and memory.
Neurobiology research from UCLA indicates the possibility of GABA interfering with working memory in patients with neurofibromatosis type 1, or NF1.
Thought control of prosthetic limbs via brain-controlled interfaces will be tested and developed with funding from DARPA. Human subjects will test neural interface systems used to control prosthetic limbs.
Researchers have developed a camera system that mimics the bee eye. The artificial bee eyes allow the researchers to take images that are believed to be similar to the bee's viewpoint.
Grid cells have been found in the presubiculum and parasubiculum of the rat brain.
UCL neuroscientists have shown that a single neuron, and even a single dendrite, can respond differently to unique sequences of input.
Biologists may be able to better peer into living cells according to new research. Using a new variation on Raman spectroscopy, detailed molecular maps of cellular content can be made without damaging the examined cells.
Neuroscience research involving epileptic patients with brain electrodes surgically implanted in their medial temporal lobes shows that patients learned to consciously control individual neurons deep in the brain with thoughts.
Computational neuroscience research provides new information on the N-type calcium channel and synaptic transmission. The computational neuroscience model investigated shows that a single open N-type calcium channel's current may be sufficient to enable neurotransmitter release.
New research on learning describes the interaction between acetlycholine receptors and SK channels and their involvement in learning and memory. These findings could lead to new research targeting acetylcholine and SK channels to help cognitive disorders such as Alzheimer's disease and schizophrenia as well as help understand learning and memory better.
