Scientists identified brain region that alters social interactions in autism model

The social deficit is a core clinical feature of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). However, the hidden neural systems remain mostly unclear. In a new study...
The way a single neuron processes information is never the same

The way a single neuron processes information is never the same

Researchers at Blue Brain have discovered that dendrites, the neuron’s tree-like receptors, work together – dynamically and depending on the workload – for learning. The findings further our understanding of how we think and may inspire new algorithms for artificial intelligence.

Certain type of neurons is more energy efficient than previously assumed

Researchers at the Institute of Science and Technology (IST) Austria have now resolved a contradiction about how a type of neurons generates signals. Scientists have...
The "flying genome": The genetic model fly Drosophila melanogaster was investigated for the current study by Prof. Grunwald Kadows' research group on how the odour of animals ages
