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?
When people suffer debilitating injuries or illnesses of the nervous system, they sometimes lose the ability to perform tasks normally taken for granted, such as walking, playing music or driving a car. They can imagine doing something, but the injury might block th
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.
Using magnetic nanoparticles, scientists stimulate the adrenal gland in rodents to control release of hormones linked to stress.
Next-generation brain implants with more than a thousand electrodes can survive for more than six years
DIBS research funding provides 7-to-1 return on investment.
Speaking to a packed University of Alabama at Birmingham audience March 6, Francis Collins, M.D., Ph.D., director of the National Institutes of Health, shared his picks of 10 “areas of particular excitement and promise” in biomedical research.
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.
Study finds human von Economa neurons' closest cellular cousins and captures first electrical recordings from these large spindle-shaped brain cells.
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.
NIH BRAIN Initiative-funded "Brainstorm Project" is highlighted in Wired's article that discusses how ethicists and biologists seek to head off challenges raised by tissue “organoids” as they become increasingly similar to human brains.
Today, the American Brain Foundation (ABF) announced that NIH BRAIN Initiative Multi-Council Working Group member, Dr. Frances Jensen, has joined its board of directors.
Researchers zeroed in on this particular brain region, known as the retrosplenial cortex (RSC), by analyzing movies—including the clip shown about 32 seconds into this video—that captured in real time what goes on in the brains of mice as they make decisions.
NIH Director's Blog: BRAIN-funded scientist, Elizabeth Hillman has pioneered the pairing of a 3D live-imaging microscope with an ultra-fast camera, called Swept Confocally Aligned Planar Excitation (SCAPE) microscopy.
Khara Ramos, who directs the neuroethics program at the NIH’s National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, described the emerging field of neuroethics at the Society for Neuroscience meeting with
Scientists have been developing astounding new tools for exploring neural circuits that underlie brain function throughout the first five years of the NIH’s Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies® (BRAIN) Initiative.
