Today the National Institutes of Health announces two transformative projects supported by the Brain Research Through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies® (BRAIN) Initiative:
New research funded by the NIH BRAIN Initiative sheds light on how we organize and store memories
In a new report published Tuesday in Nature Communications, Chang’s team has pushed that scientific milestone even further.
Organoids — tissue cultures that roughly replicate the functions of an organ — allow researchers to observe how cells behave in tissues in vitro, in the lab.
New Study Enhances Understanding of How We See
New study sheds light on underlying effects of visual settings on brain processing and facial perception.
First U.S. Human Procedure Performed at Mount Sinai Health System in New York City
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.
Scientists know both a lot and very little about the brain.
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.
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 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.
Parkinson's disease is marked by the death of dopamine-producing neurons in the brain — specifically in the substantia nigra, a structure deep within a region of the brain called the midbrain.
3 new projects launch on the Allen Institute's OpenScope, a shared neuroscience observatory, supported by the NIH BRAIN Initiative
Researchers have uncovered how signals from a group of neurons in the brain's frontal lobe simultaneously give humans the flexibility to learn new tasks -- and the focus to develop highly specific skills.
UNC School of Medicine researchers led by Ian Shih, Ph.D., used fMRI and a genetic mouse model to study the effects of a neurotransmitter on brain network functional connectivity, a dynamic process crucial for human health and behavior
