These short reports from our reporter, Jessica Wright, give you the inside scoop on developments at the 2015 American Society of Human Genetics Annual Meeting.
Using a sugar alcohol found in fruit, researchers have concocted a new chemical cocktail for making brains transparent.
A 3D printer makes brains out of bio-ink, and researchers debate the number of types of neurons.
A mathematical model of the brain’s circuits shows how neurons stuck in overdrive could produce symptoms of autism. The model may reveal how autism-linked behaviors arise from underlying biology.
Researchers have repurposed a technique called SNAP-tag labeling to illuminate and manipulate subsets of neurons in mice.
The colorful brain maps created with diffusion imaging — a technique that uses the flow of water as a proxy for nerve tracts — are unlikely to represent the brain’s anatomy with accuracy, says a new study.
