Boffins Find Evidence for Novel Brain Cell Communication

...h as the heart and have been most studied in older vertebrates (such as fish) and in invertebrates (such as leeches and crabs). The current study provides the first electron microscopic evidence for gap junctions on the axons of excitatory nerve cells in the mammalian brain. Gap junctions at this site, on axo...

Limb Regeneration Exists Innately In All Vertebrates – Says Researc

... such regeneration may also exists innately in all vertebrates including human beings. Chop off a salamander's leg and a brand new one will sprout in no time. But most animals have lost the ability to replace missing limbs. Now, a research team at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies has been able to rege...
