Identifying rapid neuromodulation of interneurons in human neocortex

30-Apr-2018

The human neocortex mediates many of the capacities that distinguish us from our closest relatives such as conscious thought and language. It is therefore striking that our understanding of this brain area is still overwhelmingly based on studies with animal models. A team of scientists led by ...

How the brain might compensate stress during learning

08-Mar-2018

Friend or foe, chequered or striped – the brain divides everything around us in categories. How the brain manages this task under pressure. When people have to assess a situation within seconds, it helps them to draw on learned categories. Psychologists from the Ruhr-Universität Bochum examined ...

Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

12-Feb-2018

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life. The generation of new nerve cells was once ...

Brain signals for drug screening

02-Feb-2018

An international team led by ETH researchers has developed a technique that uses electrical brain signals to more precisely evaluate the effect of drugs on the brain. It could be of particular use in the early development phase of anti-epilepsy medication. There are still comparatively few ...

New insights into how your brain keeps its balance

23-Jan-2018

As with all things in life, healthy brain function depends on a balance of forces. We think of our brains as active - moving a leg and saying a word are all "active" events. But it is just as important for our brains to be able to stop these actions -to stop our leg, and to stop our speech. But ...

Selenium Protects a Specific Type of Interneurons in the Brain

Scientific ‘by-catch‘ solves decades-old mystery

03-Jan-2018

200 years after the discovery of the trace element selenium, researchers at Helmholtz Zentrum München have shown for the first time why this chemical element is indispensable for mammalian life. As integral part of the enzyme GPX4, selenium protects a subset of neurons from cell death during ...

Smart people have better connected brains

24-Nov-2017

Differences in intelligence have so far mostly been attributed to differences in specific brain regions. However, are smart people’s brains also wired differently to those of less intelligent persons? A new study published by researchers from Goethe University Frankfurt (Germany) supports this ...

Circular RNA linked to brain function

16-Aug-2017

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders. While hundreds ...

Modeling the brain with 'Lego bricks'

19-Jun-2017

Researchers from the University of Luxembourg, in cooperation with the University of Strasbourg, have developed a computational method that could be used to guide surgeons during brain surgery. Surgeons often operate in the dark. They have a limited view of the surface of the organ, and can ...

Understanding the architecture of our 'second brain'

22-May-2017

Scientists have made an important step in understanding the organisation of nerve cells embedded within the gut that control its function -- a discovery that could give insight into the origin of common gastrointestinal diseases, including irritable bowel syndrome and chronic constipation. The ...
