The secretory pathway delivery of cannabinoid type 1 receptor is axonally based, and surface expressed CB1R is more stable in axons than dendrites.
A new study reports neural connectivity problems associated with neurodegenerative diseases could be the result of dendritic structural degeneration.
A new study reports on the role of dendrites in memory formation.
Using bioluminescent proteins from a jellyfish, scientists lit up the inside of a neuron, capturing spectacular video footage that shows the movement of proteins throughout the cell. The video offers a rare peek at how proteins, the brain's building blocks, are directed through neurons to renew its structure.
A new study reports on how a single instance of extreme stress can lead to long term neurological changes and trauma.
Vitamin D causes dendritic cells to produce more CD31, hindering the activation of T cells. The study sheds light on how vitamin D deficiency regulates the immune system and can lead to autoimmune diseases, like multiple sclerosis.
