Scientists have discovered a set of neural “conversations” underlying individual neurons’ activity during learned movements, findings with implications for the development of neuroprostheses.
A Northwestern Medicine study found that episodic memory may be improved through the use of noninvasive transcranial magnetic stimulation of the posterior medial network in the hippocampus.
A new Northwestern University study has discovered that the packing of the three-dimensional genome structure, called chromatin, controls how cells respond to stress.
Northwestern Medicine scientists discovered a clever evolutionary quirk in multi-ciliated cells, which help drive fluid flow in a variety of body systems.

Deaths related to choking on objects in children and adolescents — especially among children younger than three years old — have decline steadily for 50 years, according to a study published in JAMA.
A study published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that the percentage of Americans who received primary care — especially those who were male, younger, of minority backgrounds or who lived in the southern region of the United States — significantly decreased between 2002 and 2015.
A cytoskeletal protein called vimentin helps prevent the nuclei of cells that must navigate through tight spaces in the body from rupturing, according to a recent study.
