  • Unique fingerprint: What makes nerve cells unmistakable?

    Protein variations that result from the process of alternative splicing control the identity and function of nerve cells in the brain. This allows organisms to build a highly complex neuronal network with only a limited number of genes. The study describing a detailed map of neuronal splicing conduc more

  • New approaches to heal injured nerves

    Preventing the deactivation of a protein could be the key to repairing the central nervous system. Injuries to nerve fibers in the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves usually result in functional losses as the nerve fibers are unable to regenerate. A team from the Department of Cell Physiology at R more

  • Researchers Identify Key Proteins for the Repair of Nerve Fibers

    Scientists at the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) have identified a group of proteins that help to regenerate damaged nerve cells. It is commonly accepted that neurons of the central nervous system shut down their ability to grow when they no longer need it; this occurs normally more

  • Stochastic shielding and edge importance for Markov chains with timescale separation

    by Deena R. Schmidt, Roberto F. Galán, Peter J. Thomas Nerve cells produce electrical impulses (“spikes”) through the coordinated opening and closing of ion channels. Markov processes with voltage-dependent transition rates capture the stochasticity of spike generation at the cost of complex, tim more

  • A biophysical mechanism for preferred direction enhancement in fly motion vision

    by Alexander Borst Seeing the direction of motion is essential for survival of all sighted animals. Consequently, nerve cells that respond to visual stimuli moving in one but not in the opposite direction, so-called ‘direction-selective’ neurons, are found abundantly. In general, direction select more

  • New copies of old gene drove brain expansion

    Three nearly identical genes could help explain why the ancestral human brain tripled in size over the course of human evolution. The genes, descendants of an ancient developmental gene that multiplied and changed over time, could also explain how brain development sometimes goes wrong, leading to n more
