Matching between adult neurons: feel abandoned? Just call on me

AoS.Matching between adult neurons

Plasticity in the central nervous system allows the adaptation of neural circuits to new circumstances, such as the recovery after brain injury. The mechanisms of neural plasticity include, among others, the formation of new synapses. An example

How the brain consolidates memory during deep sleep

We spend a third of our lives sleeping. During sleep, our brains are decoupled from sensory input. Nevertheless, brain activity remains high and varies by sleep stages. Sleep is broadly classified into non-rapid eye movement (NREM) sleep (consists

Theta burst like stimulations lead to formation of BDNF dependent memory traces

Creating and storing memory traces in our brains is essential for learning, logical thinking, creativity, and for being able to recall persons, events, and facts throughout life. Memory traces are created by joint electrical activity in nerve
