NEW RESEARCH CONDUCTED in laboratory rats is challenging the assumption that the most active brain cells
are also the most important in controlling behavior.
It allows a gene-altering protein to enter the nucleus of brain cells
Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- Scientists have created a 'window' into the brain, which enables researchers to watch in incredible detail how human brain cells
develop and connect to each other in real time.
GUELPH, Ont., July 28, 2018 -- Canadian researchers have discovered the type of stem cell that allows geckos to create new brain cells
, providing evidence that the lizards may also be able to regenerate parts of the brain after injury.
The work still goes on, but in a new effort, a group of researchers found a creature that can generate its own brain cells
and maybe its own brain parts - leopard geckos.
Historically, these tests have been conducted in cancer cells, which often don't match the biology of human brain cells
It plays special roles in the brain, where it meets many of the criteria for being a neurotransmitter (a molecule that transmits signals between brain cells
Levels of a protein called p53, which helps control cell growth and death, shot up by 80 percent in human brain cells
infected with the viral strain responsible for the Zika epidemic in the Americas, Zhang said.
Last year, an NIH-funded team used new tools to figure out why the gene has a connection with Alzheimer's: It seems to be involved with creating protein sponges that pull beta amyloid, the waxy protein that coats the brain cells
of people with Alzheimer's disease, out of the brain.
To stay sharp, see to it that your brain cells
get what they need.
Washington, June 24 ( ANI ): Researchers have claimed to have discovered out how the fatal inherited disorder Huntington's disease kills brain cells
In much the same way the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells
. Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells
, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells
