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.
Caspase-2 is a key regulator of a signaling pathway which leads to cognitive decline in Alzheimer's disease, a new study finds.
Researchers were able to visualize neuronal activity, thanks to a new protein which fluoresces brightly each time it senses calcium.
A protein associated with Parkinson's disease regulates neurotransmission by self association, a new study reports.
