Hunting new-born neurons in the human adult brain

The hippocampus is a brain region tightly related to memory processing. This region hosts one of the most peculiar phenomena that occurs in the adult mammalian brain: the continuous generation of new neurons during a lifetime. This phenomenon is named adult hippocampal neurogenesis and is... click to read more

Gotta recognize ‘em all! Using Pokémon to understand brain development

Despite the differences that distinguish humans from one another, our brains are astonishingly similar to one another. Why are brains organized so identically to one another? This resemblance is especially striking in a region called the "temporal lobe". In this part of the brain, there... click to read more

Visualizing the effects of sleep on neurons’ maintenance

Why do we spend a third time of our lives sleeping? Why do all animals with a nervous system sleep? And how can we define sleep in all species? From jellyfish to mice to humans, all animals sleep despite the risk of predation and survival.... click to read more
