Latest Neuroanatomy Stories
A molecule responsible for the proper formation and function of neurons finds its way to the right place not because it is actively recruited, but because it can't go anywhere else.
Research from Karolinska Institutet shows that the human olfactory bulb - a structure in the brain that processes sensory input from the nose - differs from that of other mammals in that no new neurons are formed in this area after birth.
Researchers have shown in mice how immune cells in the brain target and remove unused connections between brain cells during normal development.
University of Georgia researchers have developed a map of the human brain that shows great promise as a new guide to the inner workings of the body's most complex and critical organ.
New nerve cells formed in a select part of the brain could hold considerable sway over how much you eat and consequently weigh, new animal research by Johns Hopkins scientists suggests in a study published in the May issue of Nature Neuroscience.
The anterior insular cortex is a small brain region that plays a crucial role in human self-awareness and in related neuropsychiatric disorders.
The George Jarkesy Show, a nationally syndicated radio program focusing on the intersection of politics and business, welcomed AxoGen co-founder and Vice President to discuss the company’s “perseverance”
Treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in children normalizes disturbances in the neuronal network responsible for attention and executive function.
Male songbirds use a versatile part of the brain to learn their father’s song during the early stages of development, according to a report published yesterday in the online version of Nature.
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on my parahippocampal gyrus.
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...
