Ventral Hippocampal Circuits

Neurons project from the ventral hippocampus and are important for working memory, spatial memory and connection to other regions of the cortex. Projections from the hippocampus to the amygdala are involved in emotional processing such as reward and fear. Here is the latest research on ventral hippocampal circuits.

Amygdala and Midbrain Dopamine

The midbrain dopamine system is widely studied for its involvement in emotional and motivational behavior. Some of these neurons receive information from the amygdala and project throughout the cortex. When the circuit and transmission of dopamine is disrupted symptoms may present. Here is the latest research on the amygdala and midbrain dopamine.


Aphasia affects the ability to process language, including formulation and comprehension of language and speech, as well as the ability to read or write. Here is the latest research on aphasia.

Basal Forebrain- Circuits

Basal forebrain is a region in the brain important for production of acetylcholine and is the major cholinergic output of the CNS. Discover the latest research on circuits in the basal forebrain here.

Brain Aging

Here is the latest research on intrinsic and extrinsic factors, as well as pathways and mechanisms that underlie aging in the central nervous system.

Brain Imaging of Neural Circuits

Neural circuits are groups of interconnected neurons which carry out specific functions when activated. Imaging these neural circuits allows researches to further elucidate their mechanisms and functions. Follow this feed to stay up to date on brain imaging of neural circuits.

Brain-Computer Interface

A brain-computer interface, also known as a brain-machine interface, is a bi-directional communication pathway between an external device and a wired brain. Here is the latest research on this topic.

Cannabis & Cognition

The effect of cannabis on cognitive functioning is being explored for short and long-term effects. Recent studies have shown conflicting results, with some showing no significant effects and others showing neuropsychological impairment. Discover the latest research on cannabis and cognition here.

Cholesterol in Inflammation & Remyelination

The inflammatory response is activated when demyelination occurs. Accumulation of excess myelin debris triggers cholesterol crystal formation. Cholesterol deposits in the CNS can overwhelm phagocytes resulting in impaired tissue regeneration. Here is the latest research on cholesterol synthesis in inflammation and remyelination.

Cognition & Temporal Processing

Temporal processing is the rate at which we can process auditory stimuli. It helps us process speech and localize a sound source. Here is the latest research on cognition and temporal processing.

Cognitive Decline: Environmental And Genetic Factors
