Largest Map of Protein Connections Holds Clues to Health and Disease

By charting pairwise interactions between 17,500 human proteins, scientists have created a map, on the left, depicting which proteins work together to sustain cellular function. Proteins with similar interactions profiles fall into discrete colour-coded clusters representing different bioprocesses in the cell. Credit: Katja Luck et al.

When it fires, a neuron consumes significantly more energy than an equivalent computer operation. And yet, a network of coupled neurons can perform complex tasks at energy levels that are currently unattainable for even state-of-the-art processors. What does a neuron do to save energy that a contemporary computer processing unit doesn't? New research could have the answer.
