A new map of the basal ganglia provides a blueprint of the structure of the brain region and reveals a new level of influence connected to this area.
An increase in theta oscillations in the hippocampus help make learning and subsequent memory more efficient.
Some neurons have the ability to detect and compensate for neighboring neurons, while others do not. The findings shed new light on synaptic plasticity.
Specific patterns of frontal brainwaves during everyday memory tasks help researchers to predict a patient's risk for developing mild cognitive impairment within five years.
A set of neurons in the subthalamic nucleus have been implicated in canceling planned behaviors or actions.
Study reports a pervasive neuromodulation system strongly influences sound processing in a key auditory region of the brain. Findings suggest acetylcholine may assist in the brain's ability to distinguish speech from other noise.
