Brain Science Flight, Piloting to a New Height!
A group of researchers including Yukiko Hori from the University of Tokyo has developed a novel photo-oxygenation method that has the potential to eliminate amyloid aggregates found in the brains of Alzheimer's disease patients.
Takuya Hayashi in RIKEN, Japan, and other scientists in the US, France, UK, and China have started the international research project to elucidate primate brain structure, function, and connectivity.
Using Japanese macaques, a team led by Prof. Nambu of the National Institute for Physiological Sciences, the National Institute of Natural Sciences, has demonstrated how the basal ganglia transmit motor information when a person performs a movement to reach a target by a signal.
Using Rhesus macaque, a collaborative study has revealed that the mesoaccumbal pathway in primates is critical for high-effort motivation, but not for all forms of reinforcement-based learning.
