Researchers discover neurons regulate their own excitability so that the activity level in networks remains as constant as possible.
Mouse whisker research reveals a signaling pathway which relays touch signals to the brain.
Researchers are exploring the possible clinical potential of using smart glasses, such as Google Glass, to help improve the gait of patients with Parkinson's disease.
A new study finds the ability to accurately reflect on perceptual experiences and the ability to accurately reflect on memory is unconnected, suggesting we have distinct introspective skills.
Researchers find definitive brain alterations in veterans with GWI, caused as the result of exposure to neurotoxic chemicals during the first Gulf War. The study confirms working memory is affected in those with GWI.
Researchers collect the first solid evidence that the pattern of brain activity seen when someone performs mathematical exercises under controlled conditions is similar to those seen when a person engages in quantitative thought in the course of their daily lives.
Researchers discover neurons have a special preassembly technique to speed up the manufacture of proteins at synapses, enabling synaptic plasticity and the brain to rapidly form memories.
Researchers find a genetic component to pro-social behavior is also linked to social anxiety.
The "hunger hormone" ghrelin, when released during chronic stress, makes the brain more vulnerable to traumatic events. Researchers suggest this could predispose people to PTSD.
Researchers discover an unusual occupational hazard for teachers. Progressive speech and language problems are more prevalent in those who teach than those with Alzheimer's disease.
