Some populations of neurons simultaneously process sensations and memories. New work shows how the brain rotates those representations to prevent interference.
The learning algorithm that enables the runaway success of deep neural networks doesn’t work in biological brains, but researchers are finding alternatives that could.
By digging out signals hidden within the brain’s electrical chatter, scientists are getting new insights into sleep, aging and more.
Catherine Dulac is overturning preconceptions about “male” and “female” instincts and opening new avenues to treating postpartum depression.
Researchers see structural changes in genetic material that allow memories to strengthen when remembered.
Deep neural networks, often criticized as “black boxes,” are helping neuroscientists understand the organization of living brains.
New research links serotonin and dopamine not just to addiction and depression, but to the ability to control genes.
New research finds that the subjective experience of time is linked to learning, thwarted expectations and neural fatigue.
The nervous systems of foraging and predatory animals may prompt them to move along a special kind of random path called a Lévy walk to find food efficiently when no clues are available.
