Life and death in the hippocampus: what young neurons need to survive

...ction of neurons derived from those cells. A few weeks later, animals that received the virus showed fewer fluorescent neurons compared to mice injected with a benign virus lacking the shears, meaning fewer new neurons had survived originating from neural stem cells in which the NMDA receptor had been el...

Researchers identify human DNA on the fast track

...1 region is first produced between the 7th and 9th weeks of gestation in human embryos. Furthermore, the RNA was produced by a Cajal-Retzius neuron, a particular type of cell that plays a critical role in creating the six layers of neurons in the human cortex. Salama then determined that HAR1 actually li...

In fact, many elders' desire to perform well during doctor visits make them walk faster than their normal daily paces, masking chan...

Mice lacking key immune component still control chronic viral infections

...tion, though, and when we looked at the mice seven weeks later, we were surprised to find the mice making a very robust and effective CD8 T cell response," he says. "This suggests there's an alternate way of generating CD8 T cells." The researchers believe a closely related stand-in for MHC Class I makes...
