A newfound neuron in the primate brain for precise information transmission
Assoziierte Einrichtung - Ernst Strüngmann Institute (ESI) for Neuroscience, Frankfurt am Main
SummaryWhatever we perceive, feel or do, is accomplished through communication between neurons in the brain. Neural communication is shaped by temporal interactions between inhibitory and excitatory neurons. We at the Ernst Strüngmann Institute for neuroscience have discovered a new type of cell that might aid precise information transmission by providing the right timing.
