In developing a new tool to trace the proteins that guide cellular development, Columbia scientists are deciphering one of biology’s most ancient systems.
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.
In celebration of the 2017 US Open, Columbia's Zuckerman Institute presents a piece that explores the minds behind the talents. Join us for a tour led by neuroscientist Rudy Behnia, PhD, an expert in vision at Columbia's Zuckerman Institute.
What if you could look deep into the brain and watch the activity of hundreds of neurons in a moving animal? Now, with miniature mobile microscopes, this is possible in mice and has enabled scientists to uncover a map that is used by the brain to guide our movements.
