Switch in chemical messaging is key prelude to motor skill acquisition according to research
Using a mouse model, adult neurons in corticospinal injuries begin a natural regeneration process by reverting back to an embryonic state and that regeneration is sustained by a surprising gene.
Findings suggest common major midlife adverse events, such as divorce or death of a family member, accelerates aging in the brain.
A team of scientists has developed an algorithm that can accurately pinpoint, in large regions of the human genome, mutations favored by natural selection. The finding provides deeper insight into how evolution works, and ultimately could lead to better treatments for genetic disorders.
UC San Diego researchers find small sets of hippocampal neurons activate for each episodic memory.
