• Neuromodulation & Synaptic Control: Modern Tools & Applications

  • Rob Butera and Yogi Patel have developed an implanted device that electrically stimulates the vagus nerve to inhibit unwanted nerve activity in a targeted manner

  • Annabelle Singer's recently published paper (Nature) is gaining attention for a new approach to dealing with Alzheimer’s—changing neural activity, rather than delivering drugs or chemicals

  • Researchers in Hang Lu's laboratory expose previously unseen neurological nuances and intricate gene mutations

  • Craig Forest's Robotic Cleaning Technique Could Automate Neuroscience Research

  • Lena Ting and Lucas McKay conduct laboratory-based movement studies in people with Parkinson's disease to identify new physiologic markers of fall risk

  • Researchers have for the first time precisely manipulated the bursting activity of cells in the thalamus.

  • Researchers have created a technology called the optoclamp which closes the loop in optogenetic systems.
