Using sophisticated imaging techniques, researchers observe a molecular protein folding process which could help better understand and treat neurodegenerative diseases and cancers.
Sensory information travels to two places at once; both the brain's mid-layer and the deeper layers, according to new research.
A new study which developed a system designed to observe different strains of mice living together in a 'Big Brother house' pen and with no human intervention, provides some unusual insights into social behavior which enables social hierarchy.
A surgeon is using electrical stimulation as part of an advanced surgical technique to treat Bell's palsy. Stimulating the patient's damaged facial nerves with an electrical current helps 'jump start' the nerve in order to restore improved facial movement more quickly.
A robot developed by Cornell scientists has learned to foresee human actions in order to offer a helping hand; even open a beer.
Monitoring progenitor cells in the brains of living mice, researchers discover these cells remain highly dynamic in the adult brain. Progenitor cells can transform into cells that insulate nerve fibers and help form scars that aid in tissue repair, study suggests.
Scientists have observed the neurological mechanism behind temperature-dependent febrile seizures by genetically engineering fruit flies to harbor a mutation analogous to one that causes epileptic seizures in people. Their new study also highlights the first use of genetic engineering to swap a human genetic disease mutation into a directly analogous gene in a fly.
