Latest Neural coding Stories
The dynamics behind signal transmission in the brain are extremely chaotic.
When danger looms, locusts on the ground leap and fly away.
Populations of neurons code time with extreme precision in the primate brain.
A study published in Science and reviewed by F1000 Biology members Venkatesh Murthy and Jakob Sorensen reveals that our brains have the amazing ability to be energy efficient.
A group of researchers has developed a novel way to view the world through the eyes of a common fly and partially decode the insectâ€™s reactions to changes in the world around it. The research fundamentally alters earlier beliefs about how neural networks function.
By examining how sounds are registered during the process of learning, UC Irvine neurobiologists have discovered a neural coding mechanism that the brain relies upon to register the intensity of memories based on the importance of the experience.
Inhibitory systems are essential for controlling the pattern of activity in the cortex, which has important implications for the mechanisms of cortical operation, according to a Yale School of Medicine study in Neuron.
As anyone whose nerves have been jangled by a baby's howl or who have been riveted by the sight of an attractive person knows, nature has evolved sensory systems to be exquisitely tuned to relevant input. A major question in neurobiology is how neurons tune the strength of their interconnections to optimally respond to such inputs.
