Early learning leaves lasting changes in brain, Stanford owl study shows

...arly learning can have long lasting effects on the architecture of the brain." Knudsen's new work, published Dec. 19 in the online edition of Nature Neuroscience, relies on a well-understood region of an owl's brain. This area creates a spatial map out of the sounds an owl hears, such as the squeaking of a mouse ...

He said the finding provides a basis for the effectiveness of a method called the Orton-Gillingham approach that relies on the use of sight and sound together to teach reading. Wallace sa...

Scientists develop technique that uses ultrafast lasers to obtain hi-quality images of brain tissue

..."Beth felt that current methods to reconstruct the architecture of regions of the brain were simply tedious and inaccurate in comparison with the rapid assays for genes and proteins brought about by the revolution in molecular biology. The technique we have developed makes it possible to take a chunk of tissue a...

San Diego chemist wins national award for innovative drug design
