Neuronal branches become tangled in mice lacking Pcdh genes, leading to signs of depression or sensory deficits when specific genes are absent, studies find.
A breakdown in the synchronized behavior of some neurons may produce schizophrenia symptoms, according to a new study of a mouse model of the disorder.
Neuroscientist Jacqueline Gottlieb is uncovering how the brain gathers the evidence it needs—and ignores what it doesn’t—to arrive at a decision.
Neurons that control the muscles in our hands and feet develop through a unique genetic program that may help explain how neural circuits essential for fine motor skills evolved.
