Solving the Puzzle: How Neuronal Circuits in the Neocortex Make Causal Contributions to Decision-Making
A recent study published in Nature Neuroscience from Dr. XU Ninglong’s lab at the Institute of Neuroscience, Chinese Academy of Sciences, now provided new insights into the functional role of PPC in decision-making. In this study, ZHONG et al. obtained compelling evidence to show that PPC indeed plays an essential role in decision-making under critical conditions that were largely ignored in previous studies. The authors employed a novel behavioral technique in mice combined with precise manipulation and monitoring of neuronal activity in PPC, using optogenetics, chemogenet....
A Novel Therapeutic Strategy for ALS
A study published online in Brain on April 1st has revealed a new cellular mechanism for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), suggested a novel therapeutic strategy targeting the RNA degradation pathway, and identified an asthma drug as a potential medication for ALS.
