First real-time view of developing neurons reveals surprises, say Stanford researchers

...s or add memories to their overstuffed brains, new connections are required to retain that information. Some diseases also seem to be caused by brain connections not forming normally. Dyslexia, for example, may be caused by connections failing to form between ce...

New insight into people who 'see' colors in letters and numbers

... theorize, by a failure of the "pruning" of neural connections between the areas in the developing brain. The rare condition called synesthesia--in which people's sensory perceptual circuitry seems to be miswired--was long dismissed as an oddity not worthy of scientific study. Now, however, researchers such as ...

Examination of internal 'wiring' of yeast, worm, and fly reveals conserved circuits
