MODEL SHOWS THAT THE SPEED NEURONS FIRE IMPACTS THEIR ABILITY TO SYNCHRONIZE

Redazione
(AGENPARL) – WORCESTER (MASSACHUSETTS), mar 08 settembre 2020 IMAGE: Cell membranes have a voltage across them due to the uneven distribution of charged particles, called ions, between the inside and outside of the cell. Neurons can shuttle ions across… view more  Credit: Image modified from Research conducted by the Computational Neuroscience......

RUBBING SKIN ACTIVATES ITCH-RELIEF NEURAL PATHWAY

Redazione
(AGENPARL) – WORCESTER (MASSACHUSETTS), mar 08 settembre 2020 Stop scratching: rubbing skin activates an anti-itch pathway in the spinal cord, according to research in mice recently published in JNeurosci. It can be hard to resist the relief of scratching an itch, even though scratching damages skin, especially in sensitive areas......

TRAINING NEURAL CIRCUITS EARLY IN DEVELOPMENT IMPROVES RESPONSE

Redazione
(AGENPARL) – WORCESTER (MASSACHUSETTS), ven 07 agosto 2020 When it comes to training neural circuits for tissue engineering or biomedical applications, a new study suggests a key parameter: Train them young. Techniques for training engineered neural circuits usually involve training them after the cells have fully matured. Using light-sensitive neurons......

EXTRACELLULAR RECORDING OF DIRECT SYNAPTIC SIGNALS WITH A CMOS-NANOELECTRODE ARRAY

Redazione
(AGENPARL) – LONDON (UNITED KINGDOM), gio 30 luglio 2020 The synaptic connections between neurons are traditionally determined by correlating the action potentials (APs) of a pre-synaptic neuron and small-amplitude subthreshold potentials of a post-synaptic neuron using invasive intracellular techniques, such as patch clamping. Extracellular recording by a microelectrode array can......
