Latest Nervous system Stories
Swiss scientists were able to track the chemical signals neurons send to each across junctions called synapses by using a combination of genetic and light techniques – called “optogenetics”.
Ladies, if you've been waiting years for an article to wave in your man's face the next time you want to cuddle and he groans (sorry guys), you've finally got it.
Scientists of the future might look back on the 21st century as a pivotal moment in the evolution of the human thumb.
The findings offer some hope for patients in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease.

Scientists from the University of Rochester Medical Center in New York have implaneted human brain cells to create a part-human “supermouse.” The modified mouse is said to be four times as smart as a normal mouse.
A spinal cord injury can be devastating and life-changing - currently with little hope for full recovery. However, new research from a large team of North American scientists has shown promise for a compound known as intracellular sigma peptide (ISP), according to a report in the journal Nature.
The midbrain, also known as the mesencephalon is the part of the brain most responsible for vision, motor control, arousal, temperature regulation, alertness and hearing. Formation and Orientation The midbrain is found under the cerebral cortex and above the hindbrain. The mesencephalon is not divided into any other portions of the brain unlike the other two vesicles that stem from the neural tube. There are four separate lobes on the side of the cerebral aqueduct within the...
Formation and Orientation The development of the brain is broken down into stages. The basic evolution begins in the third week of the embryonic process where the neural plate is formed. By week four, the neural plate has developed into the neural tube. The anterior part of the tube, the telencephalon, grows rapidly as it prepares to later give way to the brain. As time goes on, cells begin to classify themselves as either neurons or glial cells, thus determining their functions. Glial...
