Neurobiologists Reveal How Value Decisions are Coded into Our Brains

November 23, 2021

A new study is showing how value choices are recorded in our brains. Researchers found that persistency allows value signals to be most effectively represented, or “coded,” across different areas of the brain, especially in a critical area within the cerebrum known as the retrosplenial cortex.

Bioengineers Lead NIH Center to Map the Gene Activities of Individual Cells in Human Cortex

October 16, 2012

Bioengineers at the University of California, San Diego have received a $9.3 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to establish a single-cell genomics center and develop a three-dimensional map of gene activities in individual cells in the human cortex.

Flyception 2.0: New Imaging Technology Tracks Complex Social Behavior

February 4, 2020

An advanced imaging technology developed at UC San Diego is allowing scientists unprecedented access into brain activities during intricate behaviors. The “Flyception2” has produced the first-ever picture of what happens in the brain during mating in any organism.

UC San Diego Receives $7 Million from DOD for Innovative Neural Research

May 24, 2012

An interdisciplinary team of scientists at UC San Diego composed of physicists, biologists, chemists, bioengineers and psychologists has received a five-year, $7 million grant from the U.S. Department of Defense to investigate the dynamic principles of collective brain activity.

Ultra-Thin, Flexible Probe Provides Neural Interface That’s Minimally Invasive and Long-Lasting

June 9, 2022

Researchers have developed a tiny, flexible neural probe that can be implanted for longer time periods to record and stimulate neural activity, while minimizing injury to the surrounding tissue. The probe would be ideal for studying small and dynamic areas of the nervous system like the spinal cord.

UC San Diego’s “Simphony” Research Earns Grammy Foundation Support

April 25, 2013

…an extensive battery of neural and behavioral testing.” SIMPHONY, short for Studying the Impact Music Practice Has On Neurodevelopment in Youth, is a collaboration among researchers at UC San Diego’s Center for Human Development and the Institute for Neural Computation. “We’re grateful for the Grammy Foundation’s support of this important…

First Peek Into the Brain of a Freely Walking Fruit Fly

May 16, 2016

…San Diego have developed a technique for imaging brain activity in a freely walking fruit fly. Working with one of the most common model organisms in science, the team shows for the first time what goes on in the brain of the fly during courtship – when it’s unrestrained.

Adults Show Poorer Cognition, Better Well-Being with Age

September 16, 2022

A UC San Diego study identifies neural mechanisms contributing to poorer cognition in aging adults; results may inspire new clinical interventions

Motor Cortex Shown to Play Active Role in Learning Movement Patterns

May 4, 2014

UC San Diego neurobiologists discovered that the motor cortex of the brain plays an active role in learning new motor movements. In a series of experiments using mice, the researchers showed in detail how those movements are learned over time.

Researchers Translate a Bird’s Brain Activity Into Song

June 16, 2021

It is possible to re-create a bird’s song by reading only its brain activity, shows a first proof-of-concept study from the University of California San Diego. The study is an early step toward building vocal prostheses for humans who have lost the ability to speak.
