Quartz – You get it. Some things just make sense and you know them to be true. Or do you?
The same kind of neurons can have completely different wiring diagrams in the rat and mouse, as mice lack intercellular molecular channels known as gap junctions, researchers at Karolinska Institutet report in the scientific journal eLife. The unexpected discovery gives the researchers a new model for studying the role of gap junctions in the brain.
An FDA-approved drug can reverse an ionic imbalance in neurons that leads to hyper-excitability in mice modeling an autism-related genetic disorder.
Study reveals what happens on the molecular level of 20,000 genes.
Take it from me is a new series in Science and Technology, where we find an expert to provide a personal but informed perspective on a topical issue.
Using multiple types of cells found in the brain’s hippocampus, Salk researchers modeled how connections between cells go awry in schizophrenia.
What happens when you hear someone do any of the following: smacking their lips while eating, slurping drinks, breathing, yawning, sniffling, humming, tapping their fingers, typing or texting with the keyboard clicks switched on?
Genome editing study reveals how hormone helps prevent both obesity and diabetes.
A recent study finds that older adults are better than younger adults at anticipating stressful events at home – but older adults are not as good at using those predictions to reduce the adverse impacts of the stress.
Making Sense of Senses: Researchers Find the Brain Processes Sight and Sound In the Same Two-step Manner
Although sight is a much different sense than sound, Georgetown University Medical Center neuroscientists have found that the human brain learns to make sense of these stimuli in the same way.
Concussion Linked to 56 Percent Increase in Neurological Disease, UCSF Study Shows.
Sweat so you don’t forget: New research suggests exercise breaks improve learning, attention in university students
New research from a team of scientists at McMaster University suggests that brief exercise breaks during lectures can help university students focus their attention, retain information and improve overall learning.
Researchers used an experimental molecular therapy in preclinical laboratory tests to effectively treat several types of deadly pediatric brain cancer and now propose advancing the treatment to clinical testing in children.
