New 3D recordings of neural activity in a nematode shed light on how neurons coordinate action and perception in animals.
It seems we are a lot closer to the fantastical idea of uploading our minds into computer than most people have ever imagined. Researchers have recently copied the "mind" of a living roundworm and put it into a small robot, taking us a step closer to the amazing (albeit somewhat disturbing) reality of Hollywood's Transcendence.
Researchers are one step closer to understanding the mysterious disease of constant and widespread pain.
Researchers appear to have stumbled upon the key to consciousness, finding how to "turn off and on" the consciousness of the human mind while a patient is awake through direct neural stimulus.
Lou Gehrig's disease - also known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) - may be effectively treated with a simple copper compound, a recent study suggests.
Researchers from Johns Hopkins University have successfully mapped out the immensely convoluted pathways of cholinergic neurons - the largest nerve cells in the brain and the first cells to break down during Alzheimer's disease.
Researchers have discovered new evidence that indicates that, like many genetic disorders, schizophrenia may begin in the womb. Using stem cells, researchers observed the formation of early-stage neurons and identified key changes common among schizophrenic patients.
