The study, published in the journal eLife, tracked brain cell
activity in two regions of the cerebral cortex in lab rats, an area of the brain that controls how tasks are performed.
Using genetically engineered mice, they identified importin alpha-5 as the transporter protein that helps MeCP2 to enter the brain cell
This meant that every engineered brain cell
was now identical.
New brain cell
growth was demonstrated in an exciting study released in 2015.
Zika virus's tricks for interfering with human brain cell
development may also be the virus's undoing.
In an NIH-backed study published earlier this year, scientists looked at the effects of SIRT3 on brain cell
Louis, found in mice and in mouse brain cell
cultures that the disease impairs the transfer of proteins to energy-making factories inside brain cells
But he added: "Our results suggest that small amyloid beta assemblies impact upon memory and normal brain cell
function but don't kill brain cells
Once a brain cell
has arrived at the new location, movement stops and the brain cell
forms connections with neighboring brain cells
Now, in an in vitro study using human brain stem cells, a team of German and Californian researchers shows how a specific PCB congener, PCB-118, can interrupt normal TH function and cause the premature differentiation of one type of brain cell
The physical phenomena produced by brain cell
firings can be measured with modern equipment, and the data can be correlated with various cognitive and emotional states of the subjects.
A Dallas-based research team announced in November that it may have found additional evidence that ailments suffered by Persian Gulf War veterans could be linked to loss of brain cells
. The researchers say it's possible the brain cell
loss may be caused by exposure to combinations of nerve gas, pesticides and insect repellents.
