brain research

Researchers from the University of Michigan and the Weizmann Institute of Science have for the first time developed a central nervous system on a chip that faithfully simulates that of the human fetus - from the end of the spinal cord to the forebrain
Researchers are examining whether aerobic physical activity, which increases the level of oxytocin, the hormone of love and connection in the body, may improve the social functioning of those suffering from schizophrenia
Significant progress towards personalized medicine in the field of psychiatry, with the help of a helmet that induces electromagnetic stimulation of the brain.
Chapter nine from the book: "The Free Man - Evolutionary Psychology, Brain Research and Understanding the Mind"
Researchers at the Hebrew University and the University of Kentucky believe that a specific type of protein, which has not been studied before, substantially increases the molecular complexity in the brain and improves its function. "Such a discovery may have implications for the study of neurological diseases
Prof. Schwartz challenged the convention that nerve cells do not regenerate or recover, and discovered that the immune system also takes care of them. She also studied the blood-brain barrier and discovered that it is prevented
Using advanced methods for genetic sequencing at the single cell level, Weizmann Institute of Science scientists reveal a new molecular mechanism of action of ketamine - and show that combining it with another drug may lead to improved performance
The award was given to Sompolinski for his pioneering contribution to theoretical and computational neuroscience. This is the first time that the prize is awarded to an Israeli scientist
A powerful combination of engineering, artificial intelligence and brain research may lead to a new era in medicine
Neuroscientists have reexamined hundreds of conflicting experiments on the relationship between brain activity and conscious experience. In the world of science today there are four leading and conflicting theories that deal with the study of awareness and the relationship to brain activity. In the researchers' study
Technion researchers have discovered proteins in our bodies that are able to prevent processes that cause neurodegenerative diseases
How do zebrafish know how to swim in groups?
Understanding the mechanism is expected to help in the development of new anti-obesity drugs
