Latest Neurobiology Stories
The power of the brain lies in its trillions of intercellular connections, called synapses that together form complex neural "networks."
Using a novel technique to promote the regeneration of nerve cells across the site of severe spinal cord injury, researchers have restored bladder function in paralyzed adult rats.
A new study examining the brains of fruit flies reveals a novel stem cell mechanism that may help explain how neurons form in humans.
Despite a longstanding view that an adult brain is incapable of generating new neurons, researchers have discovered that a person’s hippocampus is constantly generating more of them.

Based on research involving mice twins, an individual’s personal experiences add to the neural connections within the brain, allowing that individual to deviate in its own unique way.
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...
