Brain cells snap DNA in more places and in more cell types than previously realized in order to express genes for learning and memory.
Researchers have uncovered the molecular structure of three major complexes of glutamate receptors in the hippocampus. The findings shed new light on the mechanisms behind memory and learning in the brain.
The cerebellum underwent evolutionary changes that may have contributed to the development of language, culture, and tool use in humans, a new study reveals.
Researchers have identified regions within the DNA of neurons that accumulate single-strand breaks (SSBs). The SSB accumulation appears to be unique to neurons. The findings challenge previous thoughts on the cause of DNA damage and how it could impact…
Researchers reveal the role hundreds of miRNAs appear to play in modulating circadian rhythm.
Researchers uncover an intimate connection between methylation and the body’s circadian rhythms.
Restoring HDAC1 could have potential benefits for those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and people with age-related cognitive decline.
