Recent Stanford research on the importance of a particular gene in aging can be traced to a casual conversation between roommates.
Stanford researchers are collaborating to develop a vibrating glove that could improve hand function following a stroke if worn for several hours a day.
Researchers led by Daniel Palanker have discovered that an imaging technique known as interferometry could be used to monitor neuron behavior.
New research examines how Zika viruses enter cells and shows that their behavior is different than that of some related viruses.
A team of Stanford researchers has designed a new flexible "micropillar" electrode to study the behavior of heart cells without affecting their behavior.
Stanford researchers have identified that the paraventricular thalamus serves as a kind of gatekeeper that identifies and tracks the most relevant details.
Stroke can affect how we perceive our bodies' positions and movements. Now, mechanical engineers are trying to help to potentially create assistive devices.
A team of Stanford researchers have developed a nanoparticle that allows them to track molecular signals within a neuron.
Testing the side effects of every drug combination is impractical, but Stanford researchers think they have a better way: artificial intelligence.
Stanford researchers are hosting an online competition featuring virtual athletes. Their goal: help people learn to walk and run after losing a limb.
A new study shows that the process of turning a group of blood vessel cells into an artery actually requires that they stop growing.
William Newsome is a world-class neurobiologist and a Christian. He talked to Stanford News about how his faith helped inspire his interest in the brain and what he sees as the real and imagined tensions between faith and science.
Stanford researchers set out to test a seminal theory of Parkinson’s disease and several related conditions. What they found is more complex than anyone had imagined.
Concussion is a serious public health problem, but researchers don't fully understand how they happen or how to prevent them. Now, researchers find, concussion is more complex than previously thought.
Seventeen million Americans live with the aftermath of stroke, including difficulty communicating, moving around, and taking care of their most basic needs. Now, Stanford researchers are working to give those survivors new hope.
Researchers have found a way to turn off a key driver of inflammation in celiac disease, an autoimmune disease that affects millions of Americans.
