Despite its chequered past, deep-brain electrical stimulation is finally showing some signs of success.
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.
Over three years, the work — a collaboration between researchers at Cedars-Sinai in L.A., Boston Children’s, and the University of Toronto — led to the discovery of two new groups of brain cells: boundary and event cells.
Treatment-resistant depression (TRD) is diagnosed after an individual has tried several types of treatment for depression and their symptoms haven’t improved.
Seven Caltech researchers are principal investigators on eight new neuroscience grants from the National Institutes of Health's BRAIN Initiative.
The 2021 cohort of Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) Investigators includes six BRAIN-funded scientists.
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.
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.
Study suggests our brains may be more in sync with each other than we think
Research unlocks new information about reading through visual dictionary in the brain
The National Institutes of Health will fund more than 175 grants, totaling nearly $500 million, through the NIH’s Brain Research Through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies® (BRAIN) Initiative, part of a large effort among federal and non-federal partners to use knowledge about how th
Call it neuroscience on the go. Scientists have developed a backpack that tracks and stimulates brain activity as people go about their daily lives.
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.
Since its launch in 2013, the Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies® (BRAIN) Initiative has doled out about $1.3 billion in grants to develop tools that map and manipulate the brain. Until now, it has operated with no formal director.
