New ways to classify and study spinal cord neurons could inform therapies for illness or injury
Map of basal ganglia connectivity uncovers key links with implications for range of disorders
Mapping neural activity to corresponding behaviors is a major goal for neuroscientists developing brain–machine interfaces (BMIs): devices that read and interpret brain activity and transmit instructions to a computer or machine.
Success in flies and worms has inspired several efforts to reconstruct more complex mammalian brain circuits. Reconstructing a whole mouse brain using electron microscopy is the next logical step, but scaling from a fly to a mouse brain presents serious challenges.

Micro-scale depictions solve century-old puzzle of brain energy use and blood vessel clusters
Cell tracking technique helps uncover how diseases progress, alter healthy tissues
The most comprehensive wiring map to date of the fruit fly brain has transformed the field of neuroscience, identifying new cell types and reconfiguring circuit models. Are neuroscientists now ready to tackle the mouse brain?
When you slip into sleep, it’s easy to imagine that your brain shuts down, but University of Michigan research suggests that groups of neurons activated during prior learning keep humming, tattooing memories into your brain.
Mount Sinai researchers have identified a neural pathway through which the brain detects errors and guides subsequent behavioral improvement.
First-Ever Study in People Describes ‘Stop Signal Neurons’ in Patients with Parkinson’s Disease
John Ngai is the Director of the NIH’s Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies® (BRAIN) Initiative.
A brain-computer interface study reveals one brain region’s surprising role in planning movements exclusively in response to sounds.
Study suggests our brains may be more in sync with each other than we think
NIH BRAIN Initiative-funded scientists used artificial intelligence to help redesign a nutrient grabbing, Venus flytrap-shaped bacterial protein into a highly sensitive serotonin sensor.
For the first time, scientists have recorded how our brains navigate physical space and keep track of others’ location.
Studies could lead to new ways to enhance memory for those with traumatic brain injury or Alzheimer’s disease
Research unlocks new information about reading through visual dictionary in the brain
A new study by MIT neuroscientists shows how the brain is wired for both by tracking the specific circuits involved and their effect on visually cued actions.
