New Role for Neurogenesis

Jerusalem, Israel — The ability to create new neurons may exist as built-in protection for sensitive brain areas, according to research in mice recently published in JNeurosci. For a quarter of...

Rejuvenating The Brain

Dresden, Germany — We all will experience it at some point, unfortunately: The older we get the more our brains will find it difficult to learn and remember new things. What the reasons underlying...

‘Census’ in Zebrafish’s Brain

Dresden, Germany — The zebrafish is a master of regeneration: If brain cells are lost due to injury or disease, it can simply reproduce them – contrary to humans where this only happens in the...

Dendrites Filtering Neuron’s Excitement

Kyoto, Japan — In mere milliseconds trillions of chemical reactions ignite signals that travel across the billions of neurons in our brain. As we go through our daily lives and absorb new knowledge...

Neural Compass

Boston, MA — If you’ve ever woken up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom and stumbled around in the dark, banging into walls or dressers in a room you’ve walked through countless...
