Columbia study in fruit flies sheds light on key aspect of development; findings could build understanding of comparable system in people.
By classifying different types of cells in the spinal cord, neuroscientists have gained new insight into an evolutionary achievement millions of years in the making.
For neuroscientists, the secret to a perfect Thanksgiving turkey isn't just the seasoning and stuffing. Instead, taste is in the brain. Please join neuroscientist Charles S. Zuker, PhD, for a flavor of the cutting edge of taste science today.
Columbia-led research solves decade-long scientific mystery; lays groundwork for entirely new investigations into cell biology and disease
Series of awards unites experts from different fields and universities; bolsters innovative, team approach to deciphering the complexities of the brain.
Single-cell atlas will serve to guide precise strategies for understanding and treating spinal-cord disease and injury, and is part of Initiative’s larger Human Cell Atlas project.
This new study upends models of how the brain constructs interpretations of the outside world. The research could shed light on phenomena ranging from eyewitness testimony to stereotyping to autism.
A new study in mice reveals that one of the body’s natural defenses against ALS suppresses disease progression early on, but in later stages advances the disease’s deadly spread through the spinal cord.
New study in mice reveals biological origins of memory deficits, a core symptom of schizophrenia.
