Researchers have developed single-cell imaging for the brain on the nanoscale.

Around the turn of the 20th century, a Spanish neuroscientist named Santiago Ramón y Cajal created intricate images of intertwined neurons that changed neuroscience forever. His exquisite illustrations helped scientists … Continue Reading Researchers have developed single-cell imaging for the brain on the nanoscale.

Researchers identify previously unknown human-specific attention network in the brain.

Researchers at Columbia University and Washington University have found that key parts of the human brain network that give a person the power to control and redirect their attention, a … Continue Reading Researchers identify previously unknown human-specific attention network in the brain.

Researchers begin to map sensory over-responsivity in autistic children and adolescents.

Using functional magnetic resonance imaging, a team of UCLA researchers have shown for the first time that children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) who are overly sensitive to sensory stimuli … Continue Reading Researchers begin to map sensory over-responsivity in autistic children and adolescents.

Study begins to map the epigenetics of brain plasticity, the switch which changes neuronal function.

Scientists at the Salk Institute have discovered that the role of neurons, which are responsible for specific tasks in the brain, is much more flexible than previously believed.  By studying … Continue Reading Study begins to map the epigenetics of brain plasticity, the switch which changes neuronal function.
