Researchers at MIT have discovered that Sirtuin1, a protein encoded by the SIRT1 gene, promotes synaptic plasticity and boosts memory.
Mice without rods and cones were able to use ipRGCs to detect light and possibly form low acuity images.
Neurobiology research from UCLA indicates the possibility of GABA interfering with working memory in patients with neurofibromatosis type 1, or NF1.
UCL neuroscientists have found evidence that the posterior parietal cortex is the general brain area mostly involved in producing the brain's map of the body in space.
In what shouldn't be shocking news to neuroscientists, research has shown that mice brains can be altered by switching cages and changing mice environments. This research should serve as a reminder to all scientists to control as many variables as possible during research.
Gut bacteria, previously considered benign, has the ability to alter the immune system of mice enough to affect the rate of Multiple Sclerosis occurance.
Thought control of prosthetic limbs via brain-controlled interfaces will be tested and developed with funding from DARPA. Human subjects will test neural interface systems used to control prosthetic limbs.
NT-020, a combination of nutrients, increased neural stem cell proliferation, neurogenesis and helped improve memory in the aging brains of mice.
Neuroscience research into the neuroscience of music shows that musicians' brains may be primed to distinguish meaningful sensory information from noise.
