While Neuralink, Elon Musk's startup-venture focused on creating a brain-computer interface, garners lots of coverage in the biotechnology space, other bioelectronics ventures continue innovating in this space.
Anatol Kreitzer presented "Mapping the functional connectivity of the motor thalamus" at the virtual Distinguished Seminar Series on October 1, 2020.
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.
Researchers develop a wider spectrum for dLight1 sensor, allowing multiplex imaging of neurotransmitters.
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.
Most of us will be familiar with the sort of stress that leads to sleepless nights.

BRAIN investigators test drive tools on the eye to understand neural cell types, circuitry
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.
In times like these, technology seems to be helping us maintain our wellbeing, despite social isolation. Beyond personal use, how is it being applied to improve the state of mental health today?
The first sign of trouble for a patient with a growing brain tumor is often a seizure. Such seizures have long been considered a side effect of the tumor.
NINDS Press Release: Scientists find responses to mixed odors are more complex than previously thought.
Next-generation brain implants with more than a thousand electrodes can survive for more than six years
On March 11th, LabRoots will be hosting approximately 15,000 neuroscience researchers, clinicians, and scientists from around the globe who are dedicated to understanding the brain and nervous system.
2019 was an exciting year for neuroscience discovery! Last month, several high-profile scientific magazines, journals, and mainstream news outlets featured articles looking back at the top scientific achievements of 2019.
