A program called ClearMap allows researchers to take a snapshot of neuronal activity across the entire brain of an adult mouse.
Astrocytes modulate most — if not all — aspects of neuronal development. We need new techniques to study these star-shaped brain cells and their potential role in autism and other conditions.
Researchers are proposing an ‘international brain station’ to share data between labs, China is becoming the destination for primate research, and 1 in 25 papers contains inappropriately copied images.
A new chemical cocktail that renders brains transparent allows a powerful microscope to resolve minute details within the brain.
Analyzing gene expression in a vision center of the mouse brain has revealed 49 different classes of cells.
By tracking calcium’s movement, a new algorithm simultaneously delineates individual neurons’ shapes as well as their firing patterns.
A new tool allows researchers to simultaneously study the physical, genetic and electrical properties of individual neurons.
Researchers are studying more than 1,000 postmortem brains with the goal of unearthing shared genetic roots in neuropsychiatric conditions, including autism.
