Travel just one millimeter inside the brain and you'll be stepping into the dark. Standard light microscopes don't allow researchers to look into the interior of the living brain, where memories are formed and diseases such as dementia and cancer can take their toll. But Stanford scientists have devised a new method that not only lets them peer deep inside the brain to examine its neurons but also allows them to continue monitoring for months. The technique promises to improve understanding...

British scientists have shown how our brain "wiring" develops in the womb and say their findings will help in the understanding of a range of brain and psychiatric disorders. Researchers from the Institute of Psychiatry at King's College London scanned babies' brains to monitor the formation of insulating layers around nerve cells. They discovered that by the age of nine months, the process was visible in all brain areas and in some regions had developed a near adult-like level. "We...

Normally, cortical nerve cells or neurons reside in the brain's gray matter with only a few scattered neurons in the white matter, but some people with schizophrenia have a higher number of neurons in the white matter. Neuronal migration errors may arise in schizophrenia as a consequence of both genetic and environmental factors. The phenomenon of aberrant cellular localization has now been studied in detail in a paper by Yang and colleagues, published in the current issue of Biological...

Researchers at the Institute for Regenerative Medicine at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center have reached an early, but important, milestone in the quest to grow replacement livers in the lab. They are the first to use human liver cells to successfully engineer miniature livers that function "“ at least in a laboratory setting "“ like human livers. The next step is to see if the livers will continue to function after transplantation in an animal model. The ultimate goal...
