A protein couple controls flow of information into the brains memory center25.07.2014 - (idw) Deutsches Zentrum für Neurodegenerative Erkrankungen e.V. (DZNE)
Neuroscientists in Bonn and Heidelberg have succeeded in providing new insights into how the brain works. Researchers at the DZNE and the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) analyzed tissue samples from mice to identify how two specific proteins, CKAMP44 and TARP Gamma-8, act upon the brains memory center. These molecules, which have similar counterparts in humans, affect the connections between nerve cells and influence the transmission of nerve signals into the hippocampus, an area of the brain that plays a significant role in learning processes and the creation of memories. The results of the study have been published in the journal Neuron.
