3 new projects launch on OpenScope, a shared neuroscience observatory
Parkinson's disease is marked by the death of dopamine-producing neurons in the brain — specifically in the substantia nigra, a structure deep within a region of the brain called the midbrain.
Researchers have uncovered how signals from a group of neurons in the brain's frontal lobe simultaneously give humans the flexibility to learn new tasks -- and the focus to develop highly specific skills.
The early feasibility study is funded by the National Institutes of Health and will evaluate the safety of the device, known as the Stentrode, the New York-based company said.
UNC School of Medicine researchers led by Ian Shih, Ph.D., used fMRI and a genetic mouse model to study the effects of a neurotransmitter on brain network functional connectivity, a dynamic process crucial
Massive neural recordings combined with advanced analyses can distill insight from enigmatic data. How far can these tools take us?
“Neurophotonic tools for microscopic measurement and manipulation” is the first of two field status reports to be published by Neurophotonics this year.
Applications are open now until June 1 to participate in an upcoming workshop and gain in-depth knowledge about two innovative tools for studying the brain – OpenScope and Neuropixels.
Submission to our Photo and Video Contest has been extended to April 30! This is your chance to show us your beautiful work and be featured in next year's BRAIN Initiative calendar.
Implants are becoming more sophisticated — and are attracting commercial interest.
The new technique enables the researchers to suppress the neuron’s activity using pulses of light.
