Specific neurons responsible for location-based memories decoded and identified.

A person’s memory is where the brain encodes, stores, and retrieves information, where it can also be used as a record of experience for guiding learned behavior. Different areas of … Continue Reading Specific neurons responsible for location-based memories decoded and identified.

Study identifies autism gene which regulates dendrite development to slow down brain communication.

The development of neural connectivity is essential for brain function, and disruption of this process is associated with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).  Now, a study from researchers led by McMaster … Continue Reading Study identifies autism gene which regulates dendrite development to slow down brain communication.

Neuroimaging shows that astrocytes are responsible for joining the 2 halves of the brain together.

A significant milestone in the evolution of the mammalian brain is the emergence of the corpus callosum, which is exclusively present in placental mammals.  This commissure forms the largest axon … Continue Reading Neuroimaging shows that astrocytes are responsible for joining the 2 halves of the brain together.

Researchers sucessfully make memories stronger and more precise during aging in mice.

It is known that neurons in the central nervous system of higher vertebrates are formed during embryonic development and that neurogenesis does not occur postnatally, except in the hippocampus. Buried … Continue Reading Researchers sucessfully make memories stronger and more precise during aging in mice.
