First-time neuro-workshop at Georgia Tech brings together consortium of universities to focus on research, technology, education, and ethics

There is a growing national community of researchers taking our understanding of brain function to the next level, and some of them recently gathered at the Georgia Institute of Technology to…

New model lends additional insight into physiological mechanisms of spasticity in cerebral palsy

Spasticity is a condition in which muscles are contract strongly, resulting stiffness or tightness, and quite often, pain. Usually caused by damage to the brain or spinal cord, it’s…

Awards recognize work in the genetics of Alzheimer’s disease, the microbiome and stroke, clinical trial design, and more

The American Neurological Association (ANA), the professional organization representing the nation’s top academic neurologists and neuroscientists, has announced the winners of its…

Rozell and Stanley leading five-year, $1.6 million study to develop new algorithms to interact with neural circuitry

The inner-workings of the neural circuitry that underlies brain function is better understood today thanks to recent technological advances developing new tools that increasingly peel back the…

Georgia Tech and MIT researchers develop noninvasive treatment to improve memory and reduce amyloid plaques in mice

Neuroscientists at the Georgia Institute of Technology and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have demonstrated that by exposing mice to a unique combination of light and sound, they…

Research from Haider lab demonstrates that visual behavior is impacted by the moment-to-moment state of activity in the primary visual cortex

Mice have a bad and undeserved reputation as an animal that can’t see very well, a characterization upheld most notably (and somewhat tragically) by the song Three Blind Mice. And also by…
