A massive dataset of 1.2M brain cells shines a light on disease’s cellular roots.
Today the National Institutes of Health announces two transformative projects supported by the Brain Research Through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies® (BRAIN) Initiative:
First U.S. Human Procedure Performed at Mount Sinai Health System in New York City
An academic/enterprise partnership that includes Penn State researchers is developing a new dielectric material to enable magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machines with shorter scan times and higher image resolutions, good news for cutting the cost of MRI scans for the hospitals and for patients
Neurophotonics has published the second part of a comprehensive two-part series that provides an extensive toolkit of optics and photonics technologies for exploring brain health and function.
MIT neuroscientists have identified an oscillatory circuit that controls the rhythmic movement of mouse whiskers.
Despite its chequered past, deep-brain electrical stimulation is finally showing some signs of success.
Researchers will map brain circuits controlling behaviors, thoughts, and moods.
Abbott has signed on to the wide-ranging neuroscience project run by the National Institutes of Health, pledging to provide its neuromodulation tech for the public-private research effort.
Scientists know both a lot and very little about the brain.
A new $15 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) will bring together several teams of researchers to accelerate our understanding of the complex mechanics that control this system, with an eye toward the development of new therapies for diseases like Alzheimer’s.
With today’s powerful imaging tools, neuroscientists can monitor the firing and function of many distinct neurons in our brains, even while we move freely about.
UNC School of Medicine researchers, led by Ian Shih, PhD, associate professor of Neurology and Biomedical Research Imaging Center, developed an improved fiber-based optical method to measure activity changes in the brain.
Using organoids to model early development, researchers used an emerging microscopy technology to see that new neurons struggled to reach their developmental destination
Each year, the initiative celebrates some standout and especially creative examples of such advances in the “Show Us Your BRAINs! Photo & Video Contest. During most of August, I’ll share some of the most eye-catching developments in our blog series, The Amazing Brain.
The human brain remains one of the greatest mysteries in science and one of the biggest challenges in medicine.
Why do we sleep?
In a new paper published in the journal eLife, researchers at the University of Rochester, including
In a study of a small region of the thalamus, MIT neuroscientists have now identified three distinct circuits that influence the development of both motor and nonmotor symptoms of Parkinson’s.
APL researchers are standardizing an amazing collection of high-resolution brain mapping data, an effort that would enable unprecedented analysis and make the Laboratory a focal point for neuroscience research.
