Have you ever wondered why you can remember things from long ago as if they happened yesterday, yet sometimes can't recall what you ate for dinner last night? A new study suggests it's because how much something means to you actually influences how you see it as well as how vividly you can recall it later.
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.
Using a two-photon microscope capable of peering deep within living tissue, researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have found new evidence that alpha-synuclein protein build-up inside neurons causes them to not only become leaky, but also to misfire due to calcium fluxes.
A new microscopy technique integrates existing and novel approaches to build a clearer picture of the workings of neurons in the brain. The technique captures cellular activity across large tissue volumes in greater detail than previous techniques have allowed for.
A new study reports on the role of dendrites in memory formation.
