Research Discovery

Neuroscientists trained neurons that normally process visual input to control a computer-generated tone. Learning to control an external device was dependent upon feedback between the visual cortex and striatum. [...continue]

Berkeley Neuroscience researchers want to know how the brain uses incoming sensory information to decide how to act. Read the latest from the Knight Lab, including Q&A with first author and PhD Program alum Matar Haller. [...continue]

Research Discovery

The Ngai Lab tracks stem cells that are generated following injury to better understand how they are able to repair damaged tissues. Read more about their latest discoveries, including Q&A with first author Levi Gadye. [...continue]

Research Discovery

Through in depth studies of dopamine circuitry, the Lammel Lab discovered that there are different dopamine sub-circuits that produce opposing behaviors. Learn more, including Q&A with first author Hongbin Yang. [...continue]

Research Discovery

Berkeley Neuroscience faculty and Chan Zuckerburg Biohub Investigator Ke Xu takes an extreme close-up of red blood cells to understand their architecture. [...continue]

Research Discovery

Berkeley Neuroscience faculty gain insight into how the brain multiplexes different types of sensory information. Read the latest from the Feldman Lab, including Q&A with first author Brian Isett. [...continue]

Research Discovery

UC Berkeley neuroscientists have tracked the progress of a thought through the brain, showing how the prefrontal cortex coordinates neuronal activity to help us act in response to a perception. [...continue]

Research Discovery

David Schaffer and colleagues have used CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing to disable a defective gene that causes Lou Gehrig’s disease in mice, delaying onset of symptoms and extending life. [...continue]

Research Discovery

The aging brain is more likely to have out of sync NREM slow waves and spindles during sleep, impairing overnight memory consolidation. [...continue]
