How Scientists Influenced Monkeys’ Decisions Using Ultrasound in Their Brains A few years ago, in a pitch black room at Stanford University, a monkey sat silently in his custom-made chair, … Read More
Maria Shriver shares a new myth-busting report backed by science that may explain why women are at greater risk for Alzheimer’s and dementia due to many factors, not just age. … Read More
Insights from the science of feeling safe suggest that we naturally long for feelings of trust and comfort in our connections with others and unconsciously react to cues of dangers … Read More
A new technology called ELAST transforms tissues, such as this slab of human brain, to make them reversibly stretchable or compressible, as well as much more durable. This allows them to be repeatedly stretched out or squished down thin for much faster infusion of labeling probes, which labs use to highlight cells or molecules under the microscope.
In this figure, neurons in the bottom row, which are missing the HDAC1 gene, show higher levels of DNA damage (green) than normal neurons.

MIT researchers have found that a protein called SYT7 appears to limit activity at neural connections called synapses. Here, synapses glowing light green are engaged in neurotransmitter release.
Optogenetics is a technique in which genes for light-sensitive proteins are introduced into specific types of brain cells in order to monitor and control their activity precisely using light signals.
