Cellular neuroscience
Cellular neuroscience is the study of neurons at a cellular level. This includes morphology and physiological properties of single neurons. Several techniques such as intracellular recording, patch-cl...

New 'Artificial Synapses' Could Let Supercomputers Mimic the Human Brain
Brain-like machines with human-like abilities to solve problems could become a reality, researchers say.
How Synapses Work
Salk scientists computationally reconstructed brain tissue in the hippocampus to study the sizes of connections (synapses). The larger the synapse, the more likely the neuron will send a signal to a n...
Diamonds Could Help Detect Early Stage Cancers, University Of Sydney Researchers Say
Diamonds could play a vital role in helping to detect cancers in their earliest stages, new research shows. Physicists from the University of Sydney have devised a way to make nanoscale, synthetic dia...
A Natural History Of Neurons
Walt Whitman’s famous line, “I am large, I contain multitudes,” has gained a new level of biological relevance. As we grow, our brain cells develop different genomes from one another, according to new...
Boston University's 3D map reveals tiny connections between cells
Harvard University researchers hope the map could be used to identify unusual connections between brain cells that could shed light on disorders such as bipolar and depression.
Axoplasmic transport - The Kinesin Linear Motor
http://creation.com Inside a living cell is an amazing transportation system. Proteins have to be delivered to the correct part of the cell to perform their ...
Axon guidance - Growth cone guidance by an adhesive substrate
In this video a DRG growth cone crosses from a fibronectin to a laminin substrate. Filopodial contact with laminin leads the way.

Dendrite
Dendrites (from Greek δένδρον déndron, "tree") are the branched projections of a neuron that act to propagate the electrochemical stimulation received from other neural cells to the cell body, or soma...

Axon
An axon (from Greek ἄξων áxōn, axis), also known as a nerve fibre, is a long, slender projection of a nerve cell, or neuron, that typically conducts electrical impulses away from the neuron's cell bod...

Synapse
In the nervous system, a synapse is a structure that permits a neuron (or nerve cell) to pass an electrical or chemical signal to another cell (neural or otherwise). Santiago Ramón y Cajal proposed th...

Chemical synapse
Chemical synapses are specialized junctions through which neurons signal to each other and to non-neuronal cells such as those in muscles or glands. Chemical synapses allow neurons to form circuits wi...
Action potential
In physiology, an action potential is a short-lasting event in which the electrical membrane potential of a cell rapidly rises and falls, following a consistent trajectory. Action potentials occur in...

Axoplasmic transport
Axoplasmic transport, also called axonal transport, is a cellular process responsible for movement of mitochondria, lipids, synaptic vesicles, proteins, and other cell parts (i.e. organelles) to and f...

Axon guidance
Axon guidance (also called axon pathfinding) is a subfield of neural development concerning the process by which neurons send out axons to reach the correct targets. Axons often follow very precise ...

Synaptotropic hypothesis
The synaptotropic hypothesis, also called the synaptotrophic hypothesis, is a neurobiological hypothesis of neuronal growth and synapse formation. The hypothesis was first formulated by J.E. Vaughn in...
Active transport
Active transport is the movement of molecules across a cell membrane in the direction against their concentration gradient, i.e. moving from an area of lower concentration to an area of higher concent...
Passive transport
Passive transport is a movement of biochemicals and other atomic or molecular substances across cell membranes. Unlike active transport, it does not require an input of chemical energy, being driven b...

Ion transporter
In biology, an ion transporter, also called an ion pump, is a transmembrane protein that moves ions across a plasma membrane against their concentration gradient, in contrast to ion channels, where io...
Depolarization
Depolarization in the context of biology refers to the sudden change within a cell during which the cell undergoes a dramatic electrical change. Most cells, especially those that compose the tissues ...
Low-threshold spikes
Low-threshold spikes (LTS) refer to membrane depolarizations by the T-type calcium channel. LTS occur at low, negative, membrane depolarizations. They often follow a membrane hyperpolarization, which ...
Autapse
An autapse is a chemical synapse from a neuron onto itself. It can also be described as a synapse formed by the axon of a neuron on its own dendrites in vivo or in vitro.Discovered in 1972, they were ...
Afterhyperpolarization
Afterhyperpolarization, or AHP, describes the hyperpolarizing phase of a neuron's action potential where the cell's membrane potential falls below the normal resting potential. This is also commonly ...
