Scientists at Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons present the most definitive evidence to date that the human brain makes new neurons throughout life.
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.
Koons, known for his work with everyday objects, will be the first artist-in-residence at Columbia’s Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute.
New mathematical models can explain several properties of biological memory and may spur advances in neuromorphic hardware—powerful computing systems inspired by the brain.
