A simple animal model shows how stimuli and states such as smells, stressors, and satiety converge in an olfactory neuron to guide food-seeking behavior.
Research reveals cells that span brain hemispheres to coordinate activity in visual processing centers, shows Alzheimer’s degrades their structure and function.
By tracking feedback during tasks, the anterior cingulate cortex notices when a new step has become necessary and signals the motor cortex to adjust.
Using organoids to model early development, researchers used an emerging microscopy technology to see that new neurons struggled to reach their developmental destination.
To ensure a quick halt, brain circuit architecture avoids a slow process of integration in favor of quicker differentiation, study finds.
Nerve cells regulate and routinely refresh the collection of calcium channels that enable them to send messages across circuit connections.
International award supports early-career scientists and engineers as they pursue interdisciplinary works.
Studying speakers of 45 languages, neuroscientists found similar patterns of brain activation and language selectivity.
