Tipping the Balance of Behavior

Researchers discover antagonistic neuron populations in the amygdala of mice which controls whether the animals engage in social behavior or asocial repetitive self grooming.

Broken Signals Lead to Neurodegeneration

Researchers discover the IP3R receptor can be locked into closed state by enzyme action. This could potentially play a role in the reduction of neuron signaling seen in some neurodegenerative disorders.
