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]

Research Discovery

Feast your eyes on the most gorgeous 3D images of cells inside a living animal you have ever seen. Eric Betzig combined lattice light-sheet microscopy and adaptive optics into a new microscope, just published in Science. [...continue]

Introducing StimDust (stimulating neural dust), a 6.5 cubic millimeter implantable device capable of stimulating major therapeutic targets in the peripheral nervous system. [...continue]

Research Discovery

Researchers analyzed the online activity of 14,894 students and found that many suffer from “social jet lag,” a condition in which peak alertness times are at odds with work, school or other demands. [...continue]

Research Discovery

Neuroscientists trained neurons that normally process visual input to control a computer-generated tone. Learn more, including Q&A with co-first author and PhD Program alum Ryan Neely. [...continue]

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]

Research Discovery

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]
