Neuronal 'barcodes' shape complex networks in the brainwww.sciencedaily.com
Understanding how billions of brain cells succeed in making precise connections is a major challenge for neuroscientists. Researchers have unraveled a molecular code that determines the shape, location and function of connections between individual neurons. These findings could help us better understand brain disorders such as autism and schizophrenia.
