Robotic system is capable of monitoring specific neurons

Robotic system is capable of monitoring specific neurons
Recording electrical signals from inside a neuron in the living brain can reveal a great deal of information about that neuron’s function and how it coordinates with other cells in the brain. However, performing this kind of recording is extremely difficult. To make this technique more widely available, MIT engineers have now devised a way to automate the process, using a computer algorithm that analyses microscope images and guides a robotic arm to the target cell.

Lund University opens research programmes within brain research

Lund University opens research programmes within brain research
  During the Science Week The Amazing Brain from 4 to 10 September (link to programme on lunduniversity.lu.se), Lund University will invite the public on an exciting trip into our mental universe! New ways of studying the brain are continually being developed, thereby also broadening the research field, which currently spans many disciplines.

Applications of mathematics reveal brain's complexity

Applications of mathematics reveal brain's complexity
The lack of a formal link between neural network structure and its emergent function has hampered our understanding of how the brain processes information. The discovery of a mathematical framework to describe the emergent behaviour of the network in terms of its underlying structure comes one step closer. A new approach to neuroscience based on mathematics is helping to reveal a universe of multi-dimensional geometrical structures and spaces within the networks of the brain.

Showing how unwanted memories can be erased

Showing how unwanted memories can be erased
Researchers at the University of California, Riverside have devised a method to selectively erase particular fear memories by weakening the connections between the nerve cells (neurons) involved in forming these memories. A sight, sound, or smell we have sensed may not later trigger fear, but if the stimulus is associated with a traumatic event, such as a car accident, then fear memory is formed, and fearful responses are triggered by the stimulus.

Investigating the competitive neuroprosthetics market

Investigating the competitive neuroprosthetics market
The market for cochlear implants, retinal implants and neuroprosthetic limbs is expected to reach $18bn by 2028. The new IDTechEx Research report, Neuroprosthetics 2018-2028: Technologies, Forecasts, Players, covers this competitive landscape. An analysis of patent timelines and major developments alongside the most recent technologies is provided for major players in each respective category. These timelines are particularly useful in answering a number of interesting questions for this field.

Magnetism to remotely stimulate brain and control body movements

Magnetism to remotely stimulate brain and control body movements
  Scientists have used magnetism to activate tiny groups of cells in the brain, inducing bodily movements that include running, rotating and losing control of the extremities — an achievement that could lead to advances in studying and treating neurological disease.

Lower brain serotonin levels could be linked to dementia

Lower brain serotonin levels could be linked to dementia
  In a study looking at brain scans of people with mild loss of thought and memory ability, Johns Hopkins researchers report evidence of lower levels of the serotonin transporter -- a natural brain chemical that regulates mood, sleep and appetite.

On the path to discovering new kinds of brain cells

On the path to discovering new kinds of brain cells
Salk Institute and University of California San Diego scientists have, for the first time, profiled chemical modifications of DNA molecules in individual neurons, giving the most detailed information yet on what makes one brain cell different from its neighbour. This is a critical step in beginning to identify how many types of neurons exist, which has eluded neuroscientists but could lead to a dramatically better understanding about brain development and dysfunction.
