New research identifies a pair of neurons which control the feeding behavior in Drosophila fruit flies. The discovery could help scientists better understand how the brain uses stimuli and memory to produce classically conditioned responses.
Using a specially designed vibrotactile display mounted around the waste, researchers study how people use vibrotactile cues to navigate unfamiliar surroundings.
Researchers find a fruit fly's salty taste sensation strategy could apply to other animals, even humans.
According to a new study, specific MicroRNA naturally packaged into exosomes are released by stem cells after a stroke, contributing to better neurological recovery.
A new study finds diffusion tensor imaging has the potential to improve diagnoses for people with movement disorders such as Parkinson's disease.
Researchers identified genetic variants that can predispose children to dyslexia and language impairment. The study could allow for earlier diagnosis and more successful interventions for language impairment disorders.
Researchers adapt a medical test, previously developed to measure a toxin found in smokers, to measure the same toxin in people suffering from MS and spinal cord injuries.
Researchers have identified an abnormal metabolic pathway which drives cancer cell growth in particular glioblastoma brain cancer subtypes.
A new study supports growing evidence that the nervous system and nerve growth factor (NGF) play a significant role in arthritis. The findings also suggest reducing elevated NGF levels could be key in developing treatments for arthritis pain.
