In a new study on 3D organoid models of the developing cerebral cortex generated from human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), researchers at the Broad Institute of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Harvard University have found three autism risk genes converge on shared pa
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.
New sensor grids could transform precision of neurosurgery, expand understanding of the brain.
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.
Understanding of novel functional roles can advance research in Alzheimer’s disease, other learning and memory disorders.
New research sheds light on how the brain combines external information and internal memory to build a sense of touch.
The NIH BRAIN Initiative is entering a new phase.
Seven Caltech researchers are principal investigators on eight new neuroscience grants from the National Institutes of Health's BRAIN Initiative.
Study sheds light on potential for long-term, at-home use of deep brain stimulation as a treatment for neuropsychiatric disorders
BRAIN grantee Eva Dyer is at the forefront of surge in computational neuroscience research at Georgia Tech
New guide will lead to more rigorous analysis, reproducibility and richer conclusions.
Atlas and cell census represent the initial products of the BRAIN Initiative Cell Census Network
By Joshua Gordon, M.D., Ph.D., and Walter Koroshetz, M.D., director of the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke
Massive cell census could better pinpoint targets for treating brain diseases
Scientists around the world are working together to catalogue and map cells in the brain. What have these huge projects revealed about how it works?
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.
