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.
Researchers appear to have shown how the brain creates two different kinds of thirst.
After eating a bag of salty potato chips, you probably feel thirsty. And after a long period of exercise, you also probably feel thirsty. However, these two types of thirst are not the same.
A grant from the National Institutes of Health will allow a Penn State College of Medicine researcher to lead a three-year, multi-institution project to create an atlas of developing mice brains.
NYU Langone Study Finds Female Mice Fetch Crying Pups, but Experienced Ones Can Distinguish Between Calls
Researchers combined two imaging technologies, creating an atlas of cells that inhibit activity to keep the brain functioning properly.
Neuroeconomist Daeyeol Lee discusses his new book and the development of artificial intelligence, asking 'Will AI ever surpass human intelligence?'
Anatol Kreitzer presented "Mapping the functional connectivity of the motor thalamus" at the virtual Distinguished Seminar Series on October 1, 2020.
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.
Recently, members of the NIH BRAIN Initiative Neuroethics Working Group (NEWG) and Multi-Council Working Group (MCWG) discussed racial inequities in neuroscience and biomedicine, COVID-19 impacts on research, and future BRAIN funding.
This funding opportunity announcement supports the development of technologies, production efforts, and dissemination resources for a cell type-specific armamentarium to study brain function across species.
Seeking to unravel the mystery of how animals follow scent, a team of scientists from the University of Colorado An
Call it neuroscience on the go. Scientists have developed a backpack that tracks and stimulates brain activity as people go about their daily lives.
As projects supported by The BRAIN Initiative® move forward, they will raise a host of important neuroethical considerations not just for the medical community but also for society as a whole, authors of a new paper wrote.
Large scientific projects in genomics and astronomy are influential not because they answer any single question but because they enable investigation of continuously arising new questions from the same data-rich sources.
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) scientists have discovered neurons in the mouse brain that help an animal learn to avoid negative experiences. The cells reside in a part of the brain involved in regulating the motivations that influence behavior.
