The human brain only reluctantly reveals its secrets, from the complexity of neural networks to basic biological functions and structures.
New research funded by the NIH BRAIN Initiative sheds light on how we organize and store memories
Discovery could immediately suggest new avenues for drug development
New study sheds light on underlying effects of visual settings on brain processing and facial perception.
MIT neuroscientists have identified an oscillatory circuit that controls the rhythmic movement of mouse whiskers.
Using organoids to model early development, researchers used an emerging microscopy technology to see that new neurons struggled to reach their developmental destination
In a new paper published in the journal eLife, researchers at the University of Rochester, including
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.
Drinking a glass of water is often sufficient to quench thirst after exercising. But while the sensation of thirst may be satiated after just a few minutes of drinking, the process of rehydration actually takes around half an hour.
Researchers used high-resolution technologies to see how dopamine circuitry in mice is affected by addictive drugs. The results answered older structural questions, while raising new ones about plasticity and recovery in the brain.
New research sheds light on how the brain combines external information and internal memory to build a sense of touch.
Seven Caltech researchers are principal investigators on eight new neuroscience grants from the National Institutes of Health's BRAIN Initiative.
New guide will lead to more rigorous analysis, reproducibility and richer conclusions.
The Albert Lasker Basic Medical Research Award, largely regarded as America’s top biomedical research prize, was recently awarded to three investigators for their pioneering work on optogenetics, including BRAIN MCWG member Karl Deisseroth.
The 2021 cohort of Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) Investigators includes six BRAIN-funded scientists.
BRAIN Scientists John Maunsell and Tirin Moore are among the newly elected members of the National Academy of Sciences.
New ways to classify and study spinal cord neurons could inform therapies for illness or injury
