Authors demonstrate that in the absence of descending cephalic input, locomotor recovery in the leech is achieved by a switch to dependence on afferent information from peripheral nerves in the body wall.
Authors addressed the question 'what, if anything, is rodent prefrontal cortex?' by carrying out a survey of prefrontal cortex researchers and uncovered points of agreement as well as differences in regard to what brain areas constitute "prefrontal cortex" in rodents."
Authors show that axons of inhibitory neurons have distinctive structural and molecular features that contrast with those of the majority of myelinated excitatory axons in human neocortex.
Authors demonstrate that capsaicin, a TRPV1 agonist, activates a pro-axon growth program, suggesting an approach for enhancing axon regeneration in selective populations of neurons.
Authors functionally defined immediate-early astrocytes (ieAstrocytes) as an in vivo astrocyte population, modulated by S1P signaling, in a mouse model of multiple sclerosis.
Authors find an evolutionarily conserved, cell-type independent coupling of mitochondrial ultrastructure to synaptic performance.
A new study shows that advillin expression is NOT limited to sensory neurons in postnatal and adult mouse
Authors established a novel, automated live-cell imaging method to identify morphological changes in individual, dying human motor neurons.
