Study in humans tracks information flow within the brain using ultra-precise magnetic resonance imaging
By combining high-resolution fMRI scans in Alzheimer’s disease patients with mouse models of the neurodegenerative condition, researchers have gained new insights into how, where and why the disease starts and spreads.
Using direct human brain recordings, a research team from Drexel University, the University of Pennsylvania, UCLA and Thomas Jefferson University has identified a new type of cell in the brain that helps people to keep track of their relative location while navigating an unfamiliar environment.
Two new studies published in the journal Science look at how the brains of animals work when they are on the move. The findings are based on neural activity using bat models.
Dr. Elizabeth Buffalo recently talked with redOrbit about her team’s discovery of grid cells in rhesus monkeys and what this could mean for the future of neuroscience.
Researchers at Emory University have shown that some primates visually deconstruct the world through triangular grids.
UCLA researchers have for the first time measured the activity of a brain region known to be involved in learning, memory and Alzheimer's disease during sleep.
In a mouse model of Alzheimer's disease, memory problems stem from an overactive enzyme that shuts off genes related to neuron communication, a new study says.
Neuroscientists at UCLA have found a way to help improve a human's memory by stimulating a part of the brain.
