New research shows how stress triggers the brain’s resident immune cells, called microglia, to remodel neural circuits, leading to synaptic changes associated with anxiety and depression.
HBP researchers propose new concept to discover the “operational functions” of brain areas.
The brain maintains its ability to generate local neural oscillations during sleep throughout the lifespan, according to a study.
