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.
Tuberculosis is a major public health problem worldwide, yet most people lack access to quick, reliable testing. Now, chemists have found a solution.
A new study finds that young children’s brains have not yet fully developed the vision circuits they need to understand words and faces.
Mentally running through a routine improves performance. A new tool – brain-machine interface – sheds light on how.
A conversation about a molecule called Ino80 led to findings that could help researchers develop therapies for a rare genetic disease of the heart muscle.
There are easy ways to test for HIV, and there are reliable ways, but easy and reliable? That's hard to come by — but perhaps not for long.
