The “Consciousness Conductor”
Editor's Pics

Observations in mice support the role of an area known as the claustrum as the “control room” for coordinating activity across the brain.

Cerebral Organoid
Editor's Pics

The cerebral organoid in this image was produced by using human embryonic stem cells. The organ-like cell cultures consist of neural stem cells (green), progenitor cells (red) and nerve cells (white).

A Link Between Alzheimer’s and Herpes Virus?
Editor's Pics

Research using brain-like tissue models suggests a possible causal relationship between sporadic Alzheimer’s disease and herpes simplex virus I infection.

Neural Net
Editor's Pics

Using microscopically fine 3D printing technologies and sound waves used as tweezers, scientists have directed the growth of tiny networks of neurons.

Investigating Craniofacial Development in Zebrafish
Editor's Pics

Using CRISPR genome editing in zebrafish, scientists linked an undiagnosed human disease with a rare genetic mutation that causes craniofacial abnormalities.

Mammary Gland Involution
Editor's Pics

Once lactation stops, milk-producing "factories" in mammary glands are eliminated as part of a process called involution.

Striatal Cholinergic Interneurons
Editor's Pics

The picture shows striatal cholinergic interneurons (cell body in yellow) whose neurites (in red) make multiple connections to surrounding neurons.
