A protein called neuroligin that is implicated in some forms of autism is critical to the construction of a working synapse, locking neurons together like "molecular Velcro," a study lead by a team of UC Davis researchers has found.
Proteins go everywhere in the cell and do all sorts of work, but a fundamental question has eluded biologists: How do the proteins know where to go?
Ask a simple question, get a simple answer: When Abraham Lincoln was asked how long a manâ€™s legs should be, he absurdly replied, â€œLong enough to reach the ground.â€
Cegedim Dendrite announced today a more efficient, automated approach for pharmaceutical companies to market their brands to managed care organizations, hospitals and government institutions.
Neurons experience large-scale changes across their dendrites during learning, say neuroscientists at The University of Texas at Austin in a new study that highlights the important role that these cell regions may play in the processes of learning and memory.
Rutgers' Bonnie Firestein likens nerve cells to trees -- some are short and bushy with many branches while others are tall with a few branches coming out of one or two main trunks. Different branching patterns correlate with specific disorders and Firestein's quest is to discover how these dissimilar patterns come about and why.
