Understanding choice is the next frontier in neuroscience.
Researchers at Brown University found that stress early in the life of female mice leads to fewer “tuning” neurons in the part of the brain responsible for making sense of emotions and following rules.
Scientists have known for about two decades that some neurons – the fundamental cells in the brain that transmit signals – are generated throughout life.
Fluorescent sensor allows imaging of neurons’ electrical communications, without electrodes.
Technique allows for maps of the neural connections of entire insect brains, which was previously not possible with other methods
