Developing Neurons Act Locally to Build Globally

Spontaneous activity correlation patterns are computed by selecting a seed point (green square), and comparing how well spontaneous activity in that cortical region is correlated with the remaining locations in the field of view. Correlation patterns show a striking widespread modular organization with patches of positively correlated activity (red regions) separated by patches of negatively correlated activity (blue regions). Scale bar: 1mm. Credit: Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience

Defective Glial Cells Can Push Neurons Toward Parkinson's Disease

News

Scientists have discovered that defective astrocytes are linked to the buildup of a toxic protein that is one the hallmarks of Parkinson's disease. The studied astrocytes, derived from Parkinson's disease patients with a genetic mutation that affects cell clean-up functions, caused more accumulation of the toxin, α -synuclein, than those derived from healthy individuals.

Anonymous Yet Trustworthy

News

Minority and dissident communities face a perplexing challenge in countries with authoritarian governments. They need to remain anonymous to avoid persecution, but also must establish a trustworthy identity in their communications. An interdisciplinary group of researchers at UC Santa Barbara has designed an application to meet both of these requirements.
