“The Sodium Theory Revisited” reveals newest developments in nerve function research. UNITED KINGDOM (PRWEB) May 24, 2013 The sodium theory has been elegantly proposed by A.L. Hodkin, A.F. Huxley and B. Katz in the early 1950s, after their experiments on Plymouth squids, to account for the role of sodium and potassium ions in nerve functions. Since then, the electrophysiological techniques and the data acquisition techniques have known amazing developments. In The Sodium Theory...

Mathematicians from Queen Mary, University of London will bring researchers one-step closer to understanding how the structure of the brain relates to its function in two recently published studies. Publishing in Physical Review Letters the researchers from the Complex Networks group at Queen Mary´s School of Mathematical Sciences describe how different areas in the brain can have an association despite a lack of direct interaction. The team, in collaboration with researchers in...

This past weekend teams from the National Football League used statistics like height, weight and speed to draft the best college players, and in a few weeks, armchair enthusiasts will use similar measures to select players for their own fantasy football teams. Neuroscientists at Carnegie Mellon University are taking a similar approach to compile "dream teams" of neurons using a statistics-based method that can evaluate the fitness of individual neurons. After assembling the teams, a...

Reading Into The Brain To Understand How Neurons Represent The World
2013-04-23 15:33:22

International School of Advanced Studies (SISSA) We know the world through the sensory representations within our brain. Such "reconstruction" is performed through the electrical activation of neural cells, the code that contains the information that is constantly processed by the brain. If we wish to understand what are the rules followed by the representation of the world inside the brain we have to comprehend how electrical activation is linked to the sensory experience. For this...

Identifying the neural code could greatly increase the chances those projects could succeed in all their stated goals Greenville, SC (PRWEB) March 28, 2013 Clinical psychologist Dr. Robert A. Moss and three graduate students have just published an article supporting the cortical column as the binary unit (bit) involved in all cortical processing and memory storage. The physiological definition of memory involves the connections among columns which serve as the neural circuits. It is...

Shortcut Map Could Simplify The Hunt For Disease-Causing Genes
2013-03-19 11:01:44

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Certain diseases are caused by single gene mutations, and with current techniques for identifying the disease-causing gene producing hundreds of potential gene candidates, it is difficult for scientists to pinpoint the single causative gene. New research led by Rockefeller University scientists has led to the creation of a map of gene "shortcuts" to simplify the hunt for disease-causing genes. Yuval Itan, a postdoctoral fellow in the...

New framework for brain communications offers insight into brain disease, says TAU researcher The transistors and wires that power our electronic devices need to be mounted on a base material known as a "motherboard." Our human brain is not so different – neurons, the cells that transmit electrical and chemical signals, are connected to one another through synapses, similar to transistors and wires, and they need a base material too. But the cells serving that function in the...

Project To Map Brain Activity Outlined By President Obama
2013-02-19 12:12:38

Alan McStravick for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The US Human Genome Project (HGP) was a successful model of a public/private partnership that advanced the understanding of life at one of its most basic levels. Officially begun in 1990, the HGP was a 13-year effort headed up by the US Department of Energy (DOE) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The project--originally planned to take 15 years--was completed two years ahead of time, thanks in no small part to the rapid...
