Researchers have identified a gene from a new family of ion channels that help to regulate smell and taste sensing, smooth muscle contraction, and fluid secretion in glands and airways.
A systematic strategy may uncover the different developmental steps and cellular machinery used to build axons and dendrites.
Researchers have found that a much-studied gene provides branches of nerve cells the ability to recognize one another and grow apart, helping them cover as much space as they can evenly and efficiently.
Precise protein targeting allows cells to build cell-to -cell junctions in the right place.
Researchers have discovered a new form of synaptic plasticity.
Researchers discover a protein that regulates the growth and activation of neural connections in the brain.
