Researchers from the Infant Brain Imaging Study (IBIS) Network, which includes the University of Washington, used MRI to demonstrate that in babies who later develop autism, the amygdala grows too rapidly in infancy.
New findings by Rutgers researchers show activities of specialized brain cells differ based on their location
In a scientific first, researchers at the University of California, Irvine have discovered fundamental mechanisms by which the hippocampus region of the brain organizes memories into sequences and how this can be used to plan future behavior.
Mutations of a gene that regulates formation of blood vessels in the brain of vertebrates can lead to potentially deadly aneurysms in adults, Yale School of Medicine researchers report in the December issue of Nature Medicine.

University at Buffalo researchers are leading a project designed to determine how to stop instances of pediatric seizure more quickly, even when on the way to the hospital.
A surgical treatment commonly used to reduce seizures in those with adult epilepsy is also effective and safe for children, according to a Rutgers study.
A University of California, Irvine-led research team has discovered that long-term memory consolidation and working memory processes that happen during rest do so at a cost to one another.
Mouse study of human stroke medication reveals potential defense against Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.
