A powerful form of light microscopy that maps neuronal connections could help researchers better understand communication among the cells.
A microscope that sections brain tissue as it scans can trace the tangled paths of thousands of neurons through the brain.
Scientists have discovered a new way that microglia, the immune cells of the brain, can sculpt brain circuits.
A 3D printer makes brains out of bio-ink, and researchers debate the number of types of neurons.
Researchers have for the first time mapped gene expression in the rhesus macaque brain from birth through adulthood. The atlas illuminates the expression patterns of genes likely to be important in autism.
A new method that lets researchers trace the paths of many neurons at once may reveal how neurons go astray in autism.
Inexpensive ‘chips’ imprinted with tiny wells and channels provide a glimpse of neurons communicating in culture.
Researchers have repurposed a technique called SNAP-tag labeling to illuminate and manipulate subsets of neurons in mice.
The colorful brain maps created with diffusion imaging — a technique that uses the flow of water as a proxy for nerve tracts — are unlikely to represent the brain’s anatomy with accuracy, says a new study.
