The ability to learn associations between events is critical for survival, but it has not been clear how different pieces of information stored in memory may be linked together by populations of neurons. In a study published April 2nd in Cell Reports,…

At some point in your life, you’ve probably been labeled a “right-brain thinker” (you’re so creative!) or a “left-brain thinker” (you’re so logical). Maybe this has shaped the way you see yourself or view the world. Well, either way it’s bogus science,…

The finding could mean recollections are more enduring than expected and disrupt plans for PTSD treatments. As intangible as they may seem, memories have a firm biological basis. According to textbook neuroscience, they form when neighboring brain cells…

all-Neuro (Neurosurgery, Neuroscience, Neurology, and more) and Infectious Diseases Blog
Introduction

This blog talks about everything that is somehow connected to neurons, neurology, neuroscience, etc.

It provides some reviews or articles of the new relevant research that is being done and sometimes my own thoughts and ideas on the matter. This blog also gives basic information about neural science, virology and infectious diseases, which can be useful for those who study those fields.

This blog was first started in June 2010 to share some articles, that have been written as a short summary for my colleagues, to help them study medicine; neuroanatomy to be precise. Later it began to cover several other fields, such as neuroscience and neurosurgery.

In 2012 this blog started to follow several other topics, such as infectious diseases and more precisely virology.
