Scientists at Stanford have identified a gene key to the formation of a type of toxic protein in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a neurodegenerative disease.
Frustrated by the poor options for their patients, two neurosurgery residents left to study basic science at Stanford, developing a drug for brain tumors.
The real question a new study suggests, isn't why some people occasionally experience hallucinations: It's why all of us aren't hallucinating all the time.
A Stanford neurobiologist continues with his challenge of explaining neuroscience in a series of brief videos on Instagram — for an entire year.
Researchers find that neural sleep patterns in fish are analogous to those in mammals, paving ways to develop sleep medication.
Dail Chapman, a postdoctoral scholar, talks about her work in the lab and her ultimate plans to teach science at a liberal arts college.
Grad student Adam Nekimken develops tiny mechanical devices to help researchers touch their worms in more controlled ways. Here, he talks about his path to this work.
Stanford researchers develop a simplified method for decoding electrical activity in the brain, which could lead in the future to improved prosthetics.
In the latest issue of Stanford Medicine magazine, writer Nathan Collins listens to the stories of lab members, including neurobiologist Miriam Goodman.
In this In the Spotlight Q&A, Daniel Bayless, a postdoctoral fellow in psychiatry and behavioral sciences, talks about his research on sex differences.
Old mice suffered far fewer senior moments on memory tests when Stanford investigators disabled a single molecule dotting the mice’s cerebral blood vessels.
In this 1:2:1 podcast, Greg Albers, director of the Stanford Stroke Center, joins host Paul Costello in conversation about the latest in stroke research.
PTSD patients who do not respond to exposure therapy may have a disruption in a part of the brain known as the ventral attention network.
Brain cells called microglia keep brains young by eliminating accumulations of protein debris. But their garbage-colllection ability fades with age.
Each time you get a reward, your brain's internal spatial map warps just a bit in a way that makes it easier for you to get back to wherever you got it.
