Salk-Gladstone Study Helps Scientists Decode Circuitry That Guides Brain Function
2013-06-28 09:51:01

Salk Institute The power of the brain lies in its trillions of intercellular connections, called synapses that together form complex neural "networks." While neuroscientists have long sought to map these individual connections to see how they influence specific brain functions, traditional techniques have been unsuccessful. Now, scientists at the Salk Institute and the Gladstone Institutes, using an innovative brain- tracing technique, have found a way to untangle these networks. These...

Findings suggest similar strategies may one day be useful for human patients Using a novel technique to promote the regeneration of nerve cells across the site of severe spinal cord injury, researchers have restored bladder function in paralyzed adult rats, according to a study in the June 26 issue of The Journal of Neuroscience. The findings may guide future efforts to restore other functions lost after spinal cord injury. It also raises hope that similar strategies could one day be used...

University of Oregon team finds stem cell patterns in flies offer potential applications for human biologists A new study examining the brains of fruit flies reveals a novel stem cell mechanism that may help explain how neurons form in humans. A paper on the study by researchers at the University of Oregon appeared in the online version of the journal Nature in advance of the June 27 publication date. "The question we confronted was 'How does a single kind of stem cell, like a neural...

Nuclear Bomb Tests Shed Light On Neurogenesis In The Human Hippocampus
2013-06-09 08:56:54

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports — Your Universe Online Despite a longstanding view that an adult brain is incapable of generating new neurons, researchers from the Karolinska Institute in Sweden have discovered that a person´s hippocampus is constantly generating more of them — and their discovery comes thanks in part to early Cold War-era nuclear bomb tests. The research, which has been published in the journal Cell, calculated the growth of new cells in adult...

Formation and Orientation The development of the brain is broken down into stages. The basic evolution begins in the third week of the embryonic process where the neural plate is formed. By week four, the neural plate has developed into the neural tube. The anterior part of the tube, the telencephalon, grows rapidly as it prepares to later give way to the brain. As time goes on, cells begin to classify themselves as either neurons or glial cells, thus determining their functions. Glial...

humgruffin
  • A terrible or repulsive person.
Regarding the etymology of 'humgruffin,' the OED says (rather unhelpfully) that it's a 'made-up word.' We might guess that 'hum' comes from 'humbug' or possibly 'hum' meaning 'a disagreeable smell,' while 'gruffin' could be a combination of 'gruff' and 'griffin.'
