A neuron’s fate was thought to be determined by the timing of its birth date. Neuroscientists recently showed that there is a distinct stem cell progenitor that gives rise to upper layer neurons, regardless of birth date or place.
Researchers combine molecular components to manipulate genes in specific cell types.
A new study explores how neural activity influences CREB dynamics.
A new study sheds light on the role striosomal neurons play in reinforcement learning.
