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
Emery N. Brown, MD, PhD, will receive the 2020 Swartz Prize for Theoretical and Computational Neuroscience.
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.
Take a look behind the scenes of an article recently published in Nature Methods entitled “jYCaMP: an optimized calcium indicator for two-photon imaging at fiber laser wavelengths” as we invite first author Manuel Alexander Mohr to shed light on this recent research.
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.
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory scientists dramatically improved the efficiency of automated methods for tracing neuronal connections. They taught a computer to recognize different parts of neurons, then used the math of topology to see how those neurons are likely to connect.
Researchers develop a wider spectrum for dLight1 sensor, allowing multiplex imaging of neurotransmitters.

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.
New functional imaging technology dynamically maps a signal’s source and underlying networks within the brain.
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?
NINDS Press Release: Scientists find responses to mixed odors are more complex than previously thought.
Using magnetic nanoparticles, scientists stimulate the adrenal gland in rodents to control release of hormones linked to stress.
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.
In a major advance in mind-controlled prosthetics for amputees, University of Michigan researchers have tapped faint, latent signals from arm nerves and amplified them to enable real-time, intuitive, finger-level control of a robotic hand.
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.
