Diseases of the Brain: Computer Model of Nerve Cells Provides Insights into Communication Problems

Study shows the interdependency between the structure and function of neurons Bonn, Germany, November, 13th, 2014. In diseases of the brain, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, the neurons fail to communicate correctly with each other. As Bonn-based researchers of the German

Archetypal CA1 neurons break the mold

Newly discovered nerve cell shape allows communication without detours In certain nerve cells, the structure that receives stimuli from other cells is directly connected with the axon, the signal-transmitting cell extension. The previously unknown nerve cell shape was discovered in
