Those of us who work in the Neurosciences are familiar with the variety of brain-related disorders that plague our society, often citing them to justify funding and support for our research programs. But on this Brain Health Day 2024, it is worth taking a moment to look closely at the status of brain health today

Our social skills pervade most aspects our life, defining our role in the family, workplace, society and beyond. People affected by Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) face challenges in social interaction and communication, experiencing core symptoms such as repetitive behaviors and restricted interests. The lab of Rui Costa at Columbia University explores the neurobiology of ‘self-paced’

Each year, more than 30,000 brain researchers come together at the Society for Neuroscience (SfN) annual meeting to present their latest research. 2012 was our first year at SfN, where we launched our very first product-–nVistaᵀᴹ–-a miniature microscope-based system to map brain circuit activity at single-cell resolution in thousands of neurons in naturally behaving rodents.

The sense of smell is an evolutionarily primitive one, and the species that rely on it for survival are many. It isn’t surprising, then, that a sophisticated neurobiology has evolved to allow for external olfactory information to be transmitted, processed and translated into behavioral responses. This is what Dr. Walter Fischler studies as a postdoctoral

Some of us collect books, some others collect stamps or coins or shells or shoes, but almost every one of us collects one thing- memories. We love them or hate them, we hang them on our walls sometimes, we’re defined by them. An important region of the brain that encodes for new memories is the

As we go through life, our brain has the amazing capacity to change and adapt to the body and the external environment. This is known as neuroplasticity, and an especially plastic part of the brain is the dentate gyrus (DG) of the hippocampus neurogenesis, responsible for important cognitive functions such as memory formation and certain
