There's no end to what you can learn: One brain cell
, or neuron, can have thousands of connections, or synapses, with other brain cells
When the switch - a tiny clump of cells found deep in the brain - is turned on, all brain cells
involved in arousal and awareness are shut down.
GDNF has been shown to protect dopaminergic brain cells
, neurons that produce dopamine that becomes depleted in Parkinson's patients.
Washington, December 12 ( ANI ): In a new study, medical researchers have discovered that a drug intended for diabetes appears to restore memory in Alzheimer's brain cells
Given all the bad news that science has delivered about brain cells
withering and memory waning as the years mount, older people have a right to be cranky.
Last November, Gage plucked fresh cells from human cadaver brains (10 hours to three days after death), stewed them in a lab dish, then grew them into brain cells
called neurons (nerve cells that transmit electrical signals).
New Study Finds that Neural Thread Protein (NTP) Impairs Insulin Function in Brain Cells
The social detachment and isolation that characterize autism may stem, at least in part, from a breakdown of brain cells
that have been implicated in people's ability to imitate others and to read their thoughts and feelings.
The foil is covered with electrodes (tiny metal pieces that conduct electric pulses), which connect directly to brain cells
that control sight.
Using preclinical models of stroke, scientists at Curis have demonstrated that treatment with a small molecule Hedgehog agonist can provide significant protection to brain cells
that have been compromised as a result of stroke.
In the stoner stereotype, pot smokers and dying brain cells
go hand in hand.
This "double whammy" quickened the way Doogies learn and remember by speeding up reactions between neurons, or brain cells
