How the brain stabilizes connections in order to learn better -- ScienceDaily

Throughout our lives, our brains adapt to what we learn and memorize. The brain is indeed made up of complex networks of neurons and synapses that are constantly re-configured. However, in order for learning to leave a trace, connections must be stabilized. ... [Published DailyMe.Com - Jul 18 2014]

Blame it on the astrocytes: does brain's most abundant cell type have role in neurological disorders?

In the brains of all vertebrates, information is transmitted through synapses, a mechanism that allows an electric or chemical signal to be passed from one brain cell to another. Chemical synapses, which are the most abundant type of synapse, can be either ... [Published Science Daily - Jul 12 2014]

Quotes

The following quote was obtained by the news editors from the background information supplied by the inventors: "Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by the progressive degeneration of corticospinal and spinal motor neurons. Most cases are sporadic (sALS), but about 5-10% of patients have an inherited familial form of the disease. About one-fifth of these is linked to mutations in the gene coding for the SOD1 protein. Transgenic animals carrying single-amino acid mutations of human SOD1 develop progressive motor neuron disease that recapitulates in many aspects the human pathology. The cascade of events ultimately responsible for motor neuron degeneration, however, remains elusive. Recent observations suggest that a complex pathological interplay subsists between motor neurons and the neighboring glial cells."
"##STR00003## where X is I, .sup.123I, .sup.124I, .sup.125I, or .sup.131I; and R sup.1 is H or CH.sub.3, by reacting"
