The Society for Neuroscience conference is hosting its 47th annual meeting, Neuroscience 2017. LabRoots is excited to participate and contribute to the conference. As the conference is for scientists and physicians devoted to understanding the brain and nervous system, we feel this is a great opportunity to connect with our users. Neuroscience 2017 is November 11-15...

Neuroscience 2017 was a successful event and is now behind us. Since the live presentations have come and gone, why watch it on demand? LabRoots offers all presentations from all virtual events on demand for perpetuity on the site. Why? We pride ourselves on providing well-rounded, educational and up-to-date information within each virtual conference along with...

It seems that the more we learn about the brain, the more complexities we find. As one of the most intricate organs researchers have ever worked with, the brain continues to confound us. The Neuroscience 2017 virtual conference is primed to help scientists learn from colleagues and experts and reveal new research about the brain...

Coming up March 16th and 17th, this world-renowned virtual conference is free to attend. It aims to help advance knowledge of the brain and nervous system by bringing together research scientists, principal investigators, lab directors, clinicians and medical professionals from around the world to discuss and learn about the latest research and technologies in the...

A study led by investigators from Massachusetts General Hospital and the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania has identified a possible target for therapies that can treat cocaine addiction.  The study, which received advance online publication in Molecular Psychiatry, found evidence that changing one amino acid in a subunit of an important...

About 55,000 people die from rabies every year.  The dreaded disease causes acute inflammation of the brain, producing psychosis and violent aggression.  The virus, which paralyzes the body’s internal organs, is always deadly for those unable to obtain vaccines in time. Tel Aviv University scientists have discovered the exact mechanism this killer virus uses to efficiently...

Please take these carrots away. I can’t stop eating them! Do you think you might ever say that? Or will that statement always only apply to chips? A study published recently in Nutrition & Diabetes indicates that you might b able to train your brain to like healthy foods instead of unhealthy ones. Scientists at Tufts...

Edward B. Lee, M.D., Ph.D, an assistant professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine in the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, has received a three-year Clinical Scientist Development Award (CSDA) for $486,000 from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation to support his research in frontotemporal lobar degeneration and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis...

ElMindA Ltd. of Herzliya, Israel, announced that the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared the company's BNA™ Analysis System for the assessment of brain function.  Brain Network Activity (BNA™) combines non-invasive, multi-channel EEG technology with sophisticated signal processing and analysis algorithms to measure patterns of brain networks activated during specific brain processes and deliver...

It takes a steady hand to perform microsurgery on the head of a fruitfully. But it turns out that neuroscientists may no longer have to perform this arduous task. In recent years, neuroscientists have begun to design and build robotic systems that allow them to perform high-throughput brain imaging experiments involving model organisms such as...
