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.

Sleep apnea, a condition where people stop breathing or have trouble breathing during sleep, is known to cause a range of problems, and now a new study has found that the condition could interfere with exercise.
Two different teams of researchers have discovered ways to create the neurons that detect pain, itch and other sensations in laboratory conditions out of human and mouse skin cells.
New research from the University of Colorado has found that workers who switch to overnight work start to burn less energy, putting them at increased risk for weight gain.
A couple of years ago a scientist looking at dozens of MRI scans of human brains noticed something surprising. A large, fiber pathway that seemed to be part of the network of connections that process visual information showed up on the scans, but the researcher couldn’t find it mentioned in any of the modern-day - anatomy textbooks he had.
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...
