Calcium channel subunits play a major role in autistic disorders

The ability of the human brain to process and store information is determined to a large extent by the connectivity between nerve cells. Chemical synapses are very important in this context as they constitute the interface ...

A new optical system shows how decisions light up the brain

When we make even simple decisions about how to interact with the world, we rely on computations performed by networks of neurons that span our brains. But what exactly are these neural networks computing?

The difference between an expert's brain and a novice's

When mice learn to do a new task, their brain activities change over time as they advance from 'novice' to 'expert.' The changes are reflected in the wiring of cell circuits and activities of neurons.

Deep neural networks uncover what the brain likes to see

Opening the eyes immediately provides a visual perception of the world—and it seems so easy. But the process that starts with photons hitting the retina and ends with 'seeing' is far from simple. The brain's fundamental ...
