Implantable Wireless Optogenetics Device Stimulates Nerves In Mice

A miniature device which blends optogenetics, using light to control the activity of the brain, with a newly developed technique for wirelessly powering implanted devices is the first fully internal method of delivering optogenetics. The device dramatically expands the scope of research that can be carried out through optogenetics to include experiments involving mice in […]

Brain Signaling: Atomic-resolution Details Discovered

Never-before-seen details of how our brain sends rapid messages between its cells has been revealed by scientists at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. They mapped the 3-D atomic structure of a two-part protein complex that controls the release of neurotransmitters from brain cells. Understanding how cells release those signals in less than one-thousandth of a second […]

Brain Complexity Starts Early In Life

The process that allows the cerebral cortex, what most people imagine when they think of the word “brain”, to develop such complexity begins when stem cells generate neurons even before we are born. That finding is from a recent study that offers the first direct evidence that distinct lines of neurons are generated from different […]

Emotions Directly Influence The Brain To Work Differently

Emotions are not only the product of the processing of information by the brain, but they also directly influence processes of learning and memory in the brain, a groundbreaking new study at the University of Haifa has found. Dr. Shlomo Wagner of the Sagol Department of Neurobiology, who conducted the study, explained: “It turns out […]
