New research points to molecules which help axons to branch and grow. The study could assist in finding new treatments for nerve regeneration after injury.
Researchers find a single gene which encodes two separate proteins from the same sequence of messenger RNA. The finding could provide new strategies for treating SCA6.
Sensitivity to bitter taste is not only shaped by taste genes, but also how much mRNA a person's cells make, a new study suggests.
Researchers identify a molecular pathway which accelerates the time taken for antidepressants to work in mouse models.
A new study finds protein synthesis in dendrites could be responsible for long-term memory formation in the brain, in addition to other functions.
Researchers discover neurons have a special preassembly technique to speed up the manufacture of proteins at synapses, enabling synaptic plasticity and the brain to rapidly form memories.
