How mRNA Transport Influences Neuronal Health

Summary: Researchers linked the survival and pathology of sensory neurons to mRNA transport within these cells. They focused on the dynein protein complex, specifically the Dynein Roadblock 1 (Dynlrb1) subunit, critical for neuron survival. One intriguing discovery was the role of FMRP in transporting mRNA, which offers a more energy-efficient method than transporting proteins. Dysfunctions …


How Neurons Help Decipher Wine Aromas and Other Scents

Summary: Scientists unraveled how animals differentiate distinct scents, even those that seem remarkably similar. While some neurons consistently identify differing smells, others respond unpredictably, aiding in distinguishing nuanced aromas over time. This discovery, inspired by previous research on fruit flies, could enhance machine-learning models. By introducing variability, AI might mirror the discernment found in nature. …
