Deep neural networks uncover what brains likes to seeNov 4, 2019
Researchers at Baylor College of Medicine and the University of Tübingen in Germany have developed a novel computational approach to accelerate finding these optimal brain stimuli.
New therapeutic strategy may help PTEN mutation symptomsOct 21, 2019
A new study offers a potential new approach to therapy for children with mutations in PTEN who exhibit autism, macrocephaly (an abnormally large skull), intellectual disability and epilepsy.
Meningioma molecular profile can predict tumor recurrenceOct 7, 2019
Researchers report that using molecular profiles might better predict meningioma recurrence.
Researchers find regulator for brain injury's first responderSep 9, 2019
A multi-institutional group has identified nuclear factor I-A (NFIA) as a central regulator of both the generation and activity of reactive astrocytes, the brain's first responders.
Brain circuit connects feeding, mood in response to stressSep 5, 2019
Researchers looked into the possibility of crosstalk between eating and mood and discovered a brain circuit in mouse models that connects the feeding and the mood centers of the brain. 
Alzheimer’s mouse model seizures disrupt adult neurogenesisJun 25, 2019
Working with animal models of Alzheimer’s disease, researchers discovered that seizures that are associated with the disease both in animal models and humans alter the normal dynamics of neurogenesis in adult brains.
Understanding brain activity when you name what you seeJun 25, 2019
A report shows that a reliable sequence of neural interactions occurs in the human brain that corresponds to the visual processing stage, the language state when we think of the name, and finally the articulation state when we say the name.
Unexpected link found between feeding, memory brain areasJan 22, 2019
The search for a mechanism that could explain how the protein complex NCOR1/2 regulates memory has revealed an unexpected connection between the feeding and the memory centers of the brain.
Fungi cause brain infection and memory impairment in miceJan 4, 2019
Researchers at Baylor College of Medicine has developed a mouse model to study the short-term consequences of fungal infection in the brain.
