Imagine standing on the beach, looking out at the vast ocean. There is no land in sight on the horizon. The depth of the water seems immeasurable. When confronted with a scene like this, many people feel a powerful emotion: awe. [...continue]

Research Discovery

Berkeley researchers used cryo-electron microscopy to capture interactions between tau protein and microtubules, providing insight into how tau can dissociate and form tau tangles in neurological diseases. [...continue]

Research Discovery

Two new longitudinal studies in humans suggest that even small elevations in brain amyloid, far below the threshold of brain-wide amyloid positivity, can be associated with memory decline. [...continue]

Research Discovery

Testing theories of brain function: The Brohawn, Waller, and Adesnik labs created an all-optical read–write interface to the mouse brain that can photostimulate up to 50 neurons distributed in three dimensions. [...continue]
