Prenatal diet could increase the risk of unhealthy eating and obesity in the offspring, a new study reports. Pregnant mice fed high omega-6 and low omega-3 diets were more likely to have offspring that were more inclined to consume hyper-caloric foods, increasing their risk of obesity.
Researchers report bioelectrical potential is a driving force for stem cells to generate different neuron types during embryogenesis.
A new study could help explain why children born to mothers infected by Zika are more likely to have microcephaly.
Researchers utilize artificial intelligence to help understand why some groups of cells deviate from normal development during embryogenesis.
Bioelectrical signals among cells instructs and controls embryonic brain development, a new study reports.
Researchers identify a new gene associated with Hirschprung Disease and show how the migration of cells that form the gut nervous system is impeded when the combined doses of two candidate genes are low. Understanding the genetic basis of HSCR offers hope for better diagnostics and treatment for it and other developmental defects caused by failure of cell migration.
