Karl Deisseroth, Sanford University Neurosciences faculty affiliate and his team of researchers trace the biochemical signaling among billions of neurons buried deep inside the brain of a moving mammal to manipulate its behavior.
Bio-X scientists have improved on their original technique for peering into the intact brain, making it more reliable and safer. The results could help scientists unravel the inner connections of how thoughts, memories or diseases arise.
A device developed by Stanford bioengineers could one day provide real-time measurements of the head impacts sustained by football players. The research could also help characterize the forces sustained in more common head traumas, such as car accidents and falls.
A-beta, a substance suspected as a prime culprit in Alzheimer’s disease, may start impairing learning and memory long before plaques form in the brain.A new study led by investigators at the Stanford University School of Medicine has implicated the blocking of endocannabinoids — signaling...
Stanford Neurosciences Institute faculty affiliate, Amit Etkin, is using a combination of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and noninvasive magnetic stimulation to map the circuitry that goes wrong in patients with psychiatric disorders.
