Dopamine drug leads to new neurons and recovery of function in rat model of Parkinson's

...the newly generated cells appeared to develop into mature neurons, and approximately 28 percent of them appeared to be dopamine neurons by 8 weeks after treatment. Animals treated for 8 weeks also developed almost 75 percent of the normal number of neuronal connections with other parts of the brain and sho...

Study provides first look at the 'birth' of a retina cell

...e can watch them at each step as they develop into mature and functional rods." Kellogg scientists then purified the rods at various stages and generated the profile of genes at each stage. This, for the first time, provided a handle for investigating the precise process of rod differentiation. Rods, alon...

Striking the right balance between excitation and inhibition

...al cord arise from a common progenitor cell. Since mature neurons can be either excitatory or inhibitory, the researchers asked how a single parental progenitor cell could produce both excitatory and inhibitory daughter cells, and how approximately equal numbers of each daughter cell are produced. In a st...

Fat stem cells being studied as option for breast reconstruction

... to these beads and are able to differentiate into mature fat cells. When injected under the skin in a rat model, the cellular combination eventually formed what they describe as a "mound" of tissue. The fat-derived stem cells being used in the study are obtained from breast cancer patients. "We need...

Stormy days ahead for coral reefs

...ng," says Dr Connolly. "They also tend to grow and mature quickly, so the species can recover before the next big storm arrives." However, one effect of the increased production of greenhouse gases is an increase in the acidity of the ocean. This is likely to reduce the stability of coral reefs, and...

New neurons could act to alleviate epilepsy

...e epileptic animals had all the characteristics of mature dentate gyrus cells. However, they found that neurons born into an epileptic environment, compared to the physiological running environment, showed reduced excitatory connectivity to other neurons, as well as increased inhibitory connectivity. Such d...

They found that in young rats, approximately 25 percent of the neural stem cells were actively dividing, but only 8 percent of the cells in middle-aged rats and 4 percent in old rats were dividing. This decreased division of stem cells...
