Neuroscientists discover new cell type that may help brain maintain memories of smells

... olfactory system. Discovering how one brain cell talks with another brain cell remains one of the most important but technically challenging questions in neuroscience. The Case researchers faced two significant hurdles in trying to answer this question in the olfactory system. The first was the shear n...

Infants can organise visual information at just four months

...gories over the timescale studied. "The literature talks about the short-looking and long-looking categories, and links to later abilities are suggested. Unusually, we looked at this longitudinally, so we were able to pick up that these categories weren't stable" says Dr Farran. "So these differences can't...

Mouse genome much more complex than expected

... long passages devoid of meaning ?Professor Zimmer talks of transcription 'forests' and 'deserts'. Although the DNA encyclopedia only has a few tens of thousands of intelligible 'pages', the researchers counted more than 180,000 different mRNAs. 'The genetic information is arranged on the DNA in a very co...
