NIH-funded study of mice provides detailed diagram of the brain circuits behind thirst and satiety
If you want to look at a living human brain, there are only a few ways to do it. Most of them require the owner of the brain to lay flat on their back and stay very, very still.
The amount of correlated activity among groups of neurons in the visual cortex predicts how well animals will perform a visual task, suggesting this may be an important mechanism for enhancing vision.
How neuroscientists are taking a look at neural circuits through technological innovations.
The MICrONS project takes a cue from the brain’s information processing powers to improve artificial intelligence.
Neuroscientists are developing new ways to analyze vast amounts of data and promote a culture of sharing and collaboration.
Computational neuroscientists use mathematical models to unravel the brain’s secrets.
New hybrid tools combine wide-field and two-photon imaging, as well as electrophysiology and neuromodulation.
Congratulations to BRAIN Initiative scientist Lihong Wang of Caltech for being named to the National Academy of Engineering.
