Research from Columbia neuroscientists shows that a previously held bias can be set aside so that the brain can apply logical, mathematical reasoning to the decision at hand.
Using powerful new imaging technology, Columbia scientists peered into a 30 nanometer-wide space between two cell organelles to find an elusive tethering protein.
Columbia scientists received a $15.3 million BRAIN Initiative award to decipher how the brain guides movement, one of neuroscience’s most fundamental questions.
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.
