A new animal study clarifies how different parts of the brain regulate sleep

...tigate their possible functional significance, the cortical EEG of the rat was recorded from frontal and parietal derivations in both hemispheres. Records were obtained for a 24-hour baseline day, six hour sleep deprivation (SD), and a subsequent 18 hour recovery. Results The low-frequency range of the NR...

At each site certain neurons respond selectively to different aspects of the visual stimuli. One of the central questions is to understand when and where a stimulus enters consciousness.

Braille reading strategies may enhance stimulation of the brain responsible for vision

... researchers have hypothesized that the pattern of cortical activations in blind individuals reading Braille would reflect these adaptations. Activations in visual (occipital-temporal), frontal-language, and somatosensory cortex in blind individuals reading Braille have been examined for evidence of differenc...

NIH panel outlines strategies for managing tumors of the adrenal glands

The panel members concurred with the prevailing view that incidentalomas should be surgically removed if they are g...

Monitoring epithelial plasticity, one cell at a time

...acidosis alters the cellular population within the cortical collecting duct (CCD) of the kidney. Over a period of days, acidosis induces one epithelial cell type in the CCD, the so called b-intercalated cells, to adopt the characteristics of another cell type, the a-intercalated cells. Intercalated cells of b...

...en, is building VLSI computer chips that reproduce cortical wiring and many of the properties of the cells. He has a chip that accurately models the retina and produces output spikes that closely match real retinae. We hope someday that these can be used as retinal implants. Weve asked them to take a comput...

Abstinence may make the brain grow stronger

...," she said. "This can include volume deficits in cortical gray matter, which are neural cell bodies, as well as in white matter, which are the fibers that are extensions of the cell bodies and that connect cells. The regions most clearly affected are the frontal lobes. Additional brain structures affecte...

Brain researchers from UCLA, Johns Hopkins discover role of key protein in converting short-term memories into lifelong ones

... mice had normal hippocampal function but impaired cortical function. Initially, both sets of mice showed an ability to learn, indicating proper functioning of the hippocampus in acquiring short-term memories. When testing took place several days later, the normal mice easily remembered their training. By con...

Deficits in mismatch negativity generation may be associated with impaired neurotransmission at NMDA glutamate receptors. Conversely, NMDA antagonists have been found to inhibit mismatch negativity, suggesting that glutamate is the ...
