A study by neurobiologists at Harvard Medical School now provides new insights into the mystery of scent.
Low-cost, open-source imaging technology for bringing brain activity to light.
Method could shed light on nitric oxide’s role in the neural, circulatory, and immune systems.
New molecule for imaging calcium in neurons reduces crosstalk from neighboring neurons
BRAIN investigators test drive tools on the eye to understand neural cell types, circuitry
BU neuroscientists examine the way brain regions function independently and collectively
Children with autism are more likely than typical children to have had problems falling asleep as infants, according to a new study1.
In experiments in mice, NYU Grossman School of Medicine researchers have for the first time created an electrical signature that is perceived as an odor in the brain’s smell-processing center, the olfactory bulb, even though the odor does not exist
ELAST technology (Entangled Link-Augmented Stretchable Tissue-hydrogel) is a chemical process that makes tissue samples very thin, very stretchy, compressible, and borderline
The Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (FNIH) has named Aviv Regev, Ph.D., winner of the 2020 Lurie Prize in Biomedical Sciences for laying the groundwork for the field of single-cell genomics and spearheading leading-edge technologies that enable a sharper perspective on human cell
For a nematode worm, a big lawn of the bacteria that it eats is a great place for it to disperse its eggs so that each hatchling can emerge into a nutritive environment. That’s why when a worm speedily roams about a food patch it methodically lays its eggs as it goes.
Understanding the source and network of signals as the brain functions is a central goal of brain research. Now, Carnegie Mellon engineers have created a system for high-density EEG imaging of the origin and path of normal and abnormal brain signals.
Tests show ‘magnetoelectric’ power is viable option for clinical-grade implants
A new microscope technology that allows real-time imaging of brain cell activity could have important applications in understanding the biology of the brain, and of brain diseases such as Parkinson's.
Using a specialized magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sensor, MIT neuroscientists have discovered how dopamine released deep within the brain influences both nearby and distant brain regions.
A rising number of light-sensitive proteins and optogenetics are enabling precise imaging of brain cells, as well as the potential to adapt functioning in neural networks.
New functional imaging technology dynamically maps a signal’s source and underlying networks within the brain.
