First real-time view of developing neurons reveals surprises, say Stanford researchers

...y not possible. While the research showed neurons firing in a more mature way than expected, it also revealed that neurons take their time establishing the final wiring of the brain. Young neurons send out branches in all directions in the hopes that some branches will connect to other neurons and form syn...

Speak up: Louder neurons form more connections

...cells that made a protein that prevented them from firing their normal electrical signals. These cells were also engineered to produce a protein that glowed green under the appropriate light. Hua looked for green neurons in her immobilized fish to see how their branches fared compared with neighboring neur...

Neurologix announces positive results of gene therapy clinical trial in Parkinson's disease

...as slowly moved towards the STN. Once a signature firing pattern was obtained confirming that the electrode was in the STN, the fine-wire electrode was removed, leaving only the microelectrode sheath through which a hair-thin (165 micron) hollow tube was inserted. Thirty-five microliters containing 3.5, 1...

The synapse is a shotgun

Envisat and ERS-2 reveal hidden side of Hurricane Rita

...ts radar scatterometer. This instrument works by firing a trio of high-frequency radar beams down to the ocean, then analysing the pattern of backscatter reflected up again. Wind-driven ripples on the ocean surface modify the radar backscatter, and as the energy in these ripples increases with wind veloci...

A new window into structural plasticity in the adult visual cortex

...e to new experiences, for example, by changing the firing pattern and responses of neurons. But it has remained an open question whether structural changes accompany this functional plasticity. In a new study published in the open-access journal PLoS Biology, Wei-Chung Allen Lee and colleagues report the co...

Scientists crack code for motor neuron wiring

...ry includes interneurons that control motor neuron firing patterns and sensory neurons that transmit feedback information on muscle action. The research team, which was led by HHMI investigator Thomas M. Jessell, published its findings in the November 4, 2005, issue of the journal Cell. Jessell collaborate...

Study ties 'new' cell-death mechanism to developmental and degenerative brain disorders

... French family. Although both mutations affect the firing of cerebellar neurons, they impact them in different ways and apparently lead to different disease manifestations. The Filipino family's ataxia is an adult-onset type with prominent motor coordination symptoms and cerebellar atrophy. The French fam...

Molecular mechanism may explain how fevers spark seizures

...ave a neuron open to the excitation and repetitive firing that characterizes seizures. The investigators are currently studying where the receptors go when the temperature is raised -- are they taken inside the cell more quickly, are they degraded, is their forward insertion into the cell membrane slowed? ...

Brain-computer link lets paralyzed patients convert thoughts into actions

The system is constantly being improved. Next steps include faster and more precise algorithms to help the computer keep pace with the neuronal inpu...

In drug design, a loose fit may be best bet

...d GPCR, activating a succession of G-proteins, and firing signal after signal. A tight connection, alternatively, may tie up a hormone with its GPCR, activating one G-protein, and limiting its signaling ability. In future studies, the scientists hope to determine whether their findings are consistent with ...

Tastes great! Study shows brain's response to pleasing -- and changing -- tastes

Eventually, activation in the ventral pallidum in response to pleasurable tastes could also be useful in brain-mapping techniques...

Archerfish tune their shots to universal properties of prey adhesion

These water shots were once thought to be all-or-none in quality, but researchers have now discovered new levels of sophistication in the archerfish's hunting strategy that sh...

Gene therapy inhibits epilepsy in animals

... activated, they inhibit the repetitive, excessive firing of brain cells that characterizes a seizure. Seizures are thought to occur, at least in part, because of an imbalance between two types of neurotransmitters: the glutamate system, which stimulates neurons to fire, and the GABA system, which inhibits ...
