Research suggests that high-level visual features are recalled before simple details, offering new insights into human perception.
A cellular defense against protein aggregates suppresses ALS in early stages but later hastens spread of the disease, a study in mice suggests.
Place cells in the brains of mice with a disorder similar to schizophrenia do not adapt to changing environments, impairing memory.
With miniature mobile microscopes, Columbia neuroscientists have uncovered a map deep in the brain that guides movement in mice.
Memories "lost" to Alzheimer's disease may just be hard to retrieve, suggests a new study by neuroscientists at Columbia University Medical Center.
