Brain cell and face perception research wins Eppendorf/Science Prize

... function, number and location of synapses between neocortical neurons. In 1998, Tams returned to Szeged and established his own lab where he identified the first intercellular mechanism capable of synchronizing cortical neurons at gamma frequency. His group discovered that the so-called neurogliaform interneuro...

New method shows that neocortical nerve cells are not renewed

... Australia and America to measure levels of C14 in neocortical nerve cells from all the cerebral lobes of adult individual brains. They have been able to show that levels of C14 in the nerve cells from all areas of the cerebral cortex were just as high as the atmospheric levels at the time of the individual's bi...

IBM and EPFL join forces to uncover the secrets of cognitive intelligence

...ry and complex thought. An accurate replica of the neocortical column is the essential first step to simulating the whole brain and also will provide the link between genetic, molecular and cognitive levels of brain function. The second and subsequent phases will be to expand the simulation to include circuitry ...

Where life's memories are stored

...the medial temporal lobe but on widely distributed neocortical areas." In their experiments, Squire and his colleagues studied patients with damage limited to the medial temporal lobe as well as those with broader damage to the neocortex. The damage was due to such problems as ischemia due to drug overdose, brai...
