For the first time ever, researchers have wirelessly programmed -- and then deprogrammed -- mice to socially interact with one another in real time. The advancement is thanks to a first-of-its-kind ultraminiature, wireless, battery-free and fully implantable device that uses light to activate neurons.
Machine learning software advances could help anesthesiologists optimize drug dose, potentially improving patient outcomes.
Informatics experts at the University of Sussex have developed a new computational model that demonstrates a long sought after link between insect and mammalian learning.
A new University of Florida study establishes, for the first time, a link between specific bacteria species and physical manifestations of neurodegenerative diseases
By discovering a potential new cellular mechanism for migraines, researchers may have also found a new way to treat chronic migraine.
Subtle differences in the shape of the brain that are present in adolescence are associated with the development of psychosis, according to an international team. The "sobering" results were made using the largest study to date of brain scans in adolescents at risk for psychosis.
Researchers at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) report in Neuropsychopharmacology that a mutation in the gene EPHB2 is linked to increased autism risk in girls.
Collaborative research between the University of Kentucky (UK) and University of Southern California (USC) suggests that a noninvasive neuroimaging technique may index early-stage blood-brain barrier (BBB) dysfunction associated with small vessel disease (SVD).
New research from Carnegie Mellon University's Bin He demonstrates that noninvasive neuromodulation via low-intensity ultrasound can have cell-type selectivity in manipulating neurons.
WRAIR scientists demonstrated that TBI biomarkers were elevated among law enforcement and military personnel, including those without a diagnosed brain injury or concussion, repeatedly exposed to low level blast. Repeated exposure have been linked to a series of reported symptoms such as headaches, fatigue, dizziness, memory difficulties, and tinnitus. Researchers hope these data are the first step to identifying objective biomarkers as clinically relevant diagnostic tools.
