University of Bristol researchers are a step closer to understanding how some of the brain’s 100 billion nerve cells coordinate communications.
Defects in this communication are associated with disorders such as epilepsy, autism and schizophrenia, and therefore these findings could lead to the development of novel neurological therapies.
Neurons in the brain communicate with each other using chemicals called neurotransmitters. This release of neurotransmitter… read more
