Mice kept in dark for a week have profound changes to hearing, neurons
Something strange happens to mice when they're shut away in the dark for an extended period of time: They develop a sort of super-hearing ability, becoming more sensitive to the sounds around them.
Scientists identify neurons that help brain forget
One afternoon in April 1929, a journalist from a Moscow newspaper turned up in Alexander Luria’s office with an unusual problem: He never forgot things.
Anesthesia sends neurons down the wrong path in unborn rat babies
While there has long been discussion whether exposure to anesthesia affects brain development, new Rush University Medical Center research published in the journal Cerebral Cortex describes how prenatal anesthesia in rats seems to disrupt the ‘precisely choreographed’ and timed migration of neurons to the area of the developing brain where thinking, memory and language occur.
Depression reversed in male mice by activating gene that helps excite neurons
Directly activating a gene important to exciting our excitatory neurons and associated with major depression may help turn around classic symptoms like social isolation and loss of interest, at least for males, scientists report.
Researchers demonstrate synaptic plasticity in new-born neurons
Even in adult brains, new neurons are generated throughout a lifetime.
These neurons may explain aggressive behavior
New research has identified neurons that control aggression and may help to establish social hierarchies.
Older people can grow new neurons, study finds
Adults well into their 70s can generate hundreds of new neurons a day — just as much as young people — according to a study that disputes previous findings that brain activity slows down as people age.
Fragile X syndrome neurons can be restored
Fragile X syndrome is the most frequent cause of intellectual disability in males, affecting one out of every 3,600 boys born.
Research reveals how neurons communicate
New research at the University of Pittsburgh suggested scientists have misunderstood the neuron communication process, specifically the dopamine release mechanism.
Study: Human neurons continue migrating after birth
Scientists at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) have revealed a stage of brain development that had previously been overlooked in a new study.
Number of neurons makes human brain powerful
New research suggests the human brain isn't special. It's just a bigger, better primate brain.
Graphene can safely interact with neurons
Researchers have successfully demonstrated how it is possible to interface with neurons, or nerve cells, while maintaining the integrity of these vital cells.
Neurons help immune system keep inflammation in check
The immune system exercises constant vigilance to protect the body from external threats — including what we eat and drink. A careful balancing act plays out as digested food travels through the intestine. Immune cells must remain alert to protect against harmful pathogens like Salmonella, but their activity also needs to be tempered since an overreaction can lead to too much inflammation and permanent tissue damage.
New neurons in adult brain may help adaptability to environment
The discovery that the human brain continues to produce new neurons in adulthood challenged a major dogma in the field of neuroscience, but the role of these neurons in behavior and cognition is still not clear.
