Research Discovery

The Walker lab has shown that a night with good sleep, particularly non-REM sleep, can calm anxiety the next day, and has identified some of the brain mechanisms involved. [...continue]

Research Discovery

A study from the Lammel lab led by Neuroscience PhD student Ignas Cerniauskas has identified genes and brain circuits associated specifically with lack of motivation — a common symptom of depression. [...continue]

Research Discovery

Julie Elie and Frédéric Theunissen have developed a new computational method that sheds light on how songbirds interpret the meaning of different bird songs on a neuronal level. [...continue]

Research Discovery

In two new papers, the Dan lab reveals new neurons, circuits, and brain areas that regulate sleep, opening the door to a better understanding of this critical state. [...continue]

Research Discovery

A new study from the Gallant lab shows that whether you read or listen to a story, your brain maps the meaning of words in a nearly identical way. [...continue]

Research Discovery

The Yartsev lab shows that adult bats can make long-lasting changes to their vocalizations after changes in background noise, making them an important model for adult vocal plasticity. [...continue]

Research Discovery

The Ivry lab and collaborators have published a detailed functional atlas of the human cerebellum. [...continue]

Research Discovery

Research from the Walker, Jagust, and Knight labs reveals a connection between sleep patterns and molecular markers in the brain that are associated with Alzheimer’s disease. [...continue]

Research Discovery

A new study from the Yartsev lab reveals that there is correlated brain activity between bats that are interacting socially — the first such observation in a non-human species. [...continue]
