  • Lab-grown neurons improve breathing in mice after spinal cord injury

    Researchers from Drexel University College of Medicine and the University of Texas at Austin improved respiratory function in rodents with spinal cord injuries after successfully transplanting a special class of neural cells, called V2a interneurons. Their results indicate that these lab-grown cells more

  • How your brain helps you learn new skills

    Even if you haven't ridden your bike in years, you probably remember how to do so without giving it much thought. If you're a skilled piano player, odds are you can easily sit down and play a song you've rehearsed before. And, when you drive to work, you're likely not actively thinking about your mo more

  • Interneuron plasticity ensuring long-term memory formation

    Understanding learning and memory processes is of fundamental importance to the study of brain function and provides valuable insights for disorders where these processes are disturbed. The current study of Pico Caroni from the Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research, identifies plastic more

Frozen plasticity

Frozen plasticity Frozen plasticity is a hypothesis in evolutionary biology based on punctuated equilibria and augmenting it with a mechanism for species stability based on evolutionarily stable strategies on the gene and allele level. Mec ... more
