A mysterious region deep in the human brain could be where we sort through the onslaught of stimuli from the outside world and focus on the information most important to our behavior and survival, Princeton University researchers have found.

Real-time 3-D video of nematode brains links neurons with motion and behavior | Princeton University researchers have captured some of the first near-whole-brain recordings of 3-D neural activity of a free-moving animal,and at single-neuron resolution. They studied the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans,a worm species 1 millimeter long with a nervous system containing just 302 neurons. The three-dimensional recordings could provide scientists...

Princeton University researchers have found that the pulvinar, a mysterious region deep in the human brain, acts like a switchboard operator to make sure that separate areas of the brain are communicating about the same external information most important to our behavior at a given moment. The pulvinar uses electrical impulses to synchronize and allow more effective communication between brain cells in the visual cortex, which processes visual information.

Early cerebellum injury hinders neural development, possible root of autism. Princeton University researchers offer a new theory that an early-life injury to the cerebellum disrupts the brain's processing of external and internal information and leads to 'developmental diaschisis', wherein a loss of function in one brain region leads to problems in another. ref http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0896627314006278 ]
