A professor of neurosciences at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in New York, Zador has run five miles a day, seven days a week since he was 18. “That’s when the ideas sort of click into place,” he says.
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory scientists dramatically improved the efficiency of automated methods for tracing neuronal connections. They taught a computer to recognize different parts of neurons, then used the math of topology to see how those neurons are likely to connect.
Researchers develop a wider spectrum for dLight1 sensor, allowing multiplex imaging of neurotransmitters.
Recently, members of the NIH BRAIN Initiative Neuroethics Working Group (NEWG) and Multi-Council Working Group (MCWG) discussed racial inequities in neuroscience and biomedicine, COVID-19 impacts on research, and future BRAIN funding.
This funding opportunity announcement supports the development of technologies, production efforts, and dissemination resources for a cell type-specific armamentarium to study brain function across species.
Seeking to unravel the mystery of how animals follow scent, a team of scientists from the University of Colorado An
Call it neuroscience on the go. Scientists have developed a backpack that tracks and stimulates brain activity as people go about their daily lives.
As projects supported by The BRAIN Initiative® move forward, they will raise a host of important neuroethical considerations not just for the medical community but also for society as a whole, authors of a new paper wrote.
Large scientific projects in genomics and astronomy are influential not because they answer any single question but because they enable investigation of continuously arising new questions from the same data-rich sources.
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) scientists have discovered neurons in the mouse brain that help an animal learn to avoid negative experiences. The cells reside in a part of the brain involved in regulating the motivations that influence behavior.
Immune cells play an unexpected role in fine-tuning the brain’s neural circuits, according to research published in September, 2020 in Neuron.
Most of us will be familiar with the sort of stress that leads to sleepless nights.

Major NIH award to study how the brain infers structure from sensory signals may have applications for disorders like schizophrenia and offer insights for artificial intelligence.
NYU Langone Researchers Identify ‘On–Off Switch’ Nerve Cells for Male Mating & Aggression in the Amygdala
Drastically reducing the power and computation needed to identify our intentions, researchers open up a future of advanced therapies and machines enabled by our thoughts.
The MIT professor takes a mathematical approach to exploring memory, navigation, and other neural functions.
New analysis could help uncover potential drug targets for attention deficits and sensory hypersensitivity.
