How the brain focuses on what’s in mind
When holding information in mind, neural activity is more focused when and where there are bursts of gamma frequency rhythms

How the brain generates rhythmic behavior
MIT neuroscientists have identified an oscillatory circuit that controls the rhythmic movement of mouse whiskers

Constructive connectomics: How neuronal axons get from here to there using gene-expression maps derived from their family trees
During brain development, billions of axons must navigate over multiple spatial scales to reach specific neuronal targets, and so build the processing circuits that generate the intelligent behavior of animals

When Alzheimer’s degrades cells that cross hemispheres, visual memory suffers
Cross-hemisphere interactions are suddenly getting interesting after decades of neglect

This Man Set the Record for Wearing a Brain-Computer Interface
Implanted devices let people control computers and prosthetic limbs with their minds. But nobody knows how long they’ll last—and when they’ll need upgrades

EBRAINS Brain Atlas enables researchers to gain a deeper understanding of brain organization
The study demonstrates a method to unravel structure-function relationships by using the multilevel Julich-Brain Atlas on EBRAINS to bridge the different scales of brain organisation. The findings provide insight into the visual, auditory, somatosensory, and motor systems of the brain

The brain processes behind pattern recognition
Human brains learn patterns over time and we don’t even realize it. New insight into how this works could improve learning and other cognitive processes

The End of Baldness? The Chemical Controlling Life and Death in Hair Follicles Identified
A single chemical is key to controlling when hair follicle cells divide, and when they die. This discovery could not only treat baldness, but ultimately speed wound healing because follicles are a source of stem cells.

Patterned Hippocampal Stimulation Facilitates Memory in Patients With a History of Head Impact and/or Brain Injury
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the hippocampus for enhancement of memory impaired by injury or disease

10 place cells recorded simultaneously over 50 minutes of foraging
Rat hippocampus CA1

A Relativistic Theory of Consciousness
Consciousness can not simply be reduced to neural activity alone. A novel study reports the dynamics of consciousness may be understood by a newly developed conceptual and mathematical framework.

Anesthetic drastically diverts the travels of brain waves
Under propofol general anesthesia very slow frequency traveling waves transform and dominate

‘Traveling’ nature of brain waves may help working memory work
The act of holding information in mind is accompanied by coordination of rotating brain waves in the prefrontal cortex, a new study finds

New study reveals how brain waves control working memory
Brain rhythms act as a gate for information entering and leaving the mind

New method spotlights synaptic plasticity in living mice
Using a new line of mice that express a synaptic membrane receptor with a fluorescent tag, researchers have tracked changes in the strength of synapses across the brain over several days

Visual and linguistic semantic representations are aligned at the border of human visual cortex
These results suggest that these two networks are smoothly joined to form one contiguous map

Researchers predict rat behaviors from brain activity
If behavior is a language, neuroscientist is decoding its grammar.

How the world’s biggest brain maps could transform neuroscience
Scientists around the world are working together to catalogue and map cells in the brain. What have these huge projects revealed about how it works?

Digital Reconstruction of Neocortical Microcircuitry
Visualizations of the first square millimeter of simulated rat brain
