Researchers discover neuronal mechanism linked to a minutes-long decision process in fruit flies
They identified a brain signal that guides one type of decision-making—findings that could build a foundation for understanding how humans make educated and strategic decisions.
July 20, 2022
Ant colonies behave like neural networks when making decisions
Colonies decide to flee rising temperatures in much the same way that neural computations give rise to decisions.

New study reveals where memory fragments are stored
The research demonstrates the distributed nature of memory processing in the brain, and reveals a dedicated pathway for memory recall, which is less understood than memory formation.

How a fly's brain calculates its position in space
New research reveals how neurons in a fly's brain signal the direction in which the body is traveling. The cells appear to literally perform vector math in order to act as a biological compass.

Dopamine’s many roles, explained
Studying fruit flies, researchers ask how a single brain chemical can orchestrate diverse functions such as learning, motivation and movement.
October 5, 2021
Study detects origins of Huntington's disease in two-week-old human embryos
The findings shed new light on the root causes of this disease, which leads to the degeneration of neurons in midlife.

New microscopy technique reveals activity of one million neurons across the mouse brain
Using light beads microscopy, researchers can now capture images of a vast number of cells across different depths in the brain at high speed, with unprecedented clarity.

Lonely flies, like many humans, eat more and sleep less
If COVID-19 lockdowns scrambled your sleep schedule and stretched your waistline, you're not alone. Fruit flies quarantined in test tubes sleep too little and eat too much after only one week of social isolation.

Study reveals how smell receptors work
The first-ever molecular images of an olfactory receptor at work answer decades-old questions about odor recognition.

When ant colonies get bigger, new foraging behavior emerges
By increasing the size of ant colonies bit by bit, scientists identified the mechanism responsible for the evolution of mass raiding behavior.
