The Right Moves

Harvard Medical School

New research in mice reveals how specialized neurons allow the brain to construct sequences of movements. Damage to these neurons disrupts the ability to correctly string together movements into desired actions. The findings may inform the study and eventual treatment of movement disorders such as Parkinson’s and Huntington’s.

The Written History of a Neuron

Harvard Medical School

From burning your palm on a hot pan handle to memorizing the name of a new acquaintance, “anytime you experience something, your neurons are active,” says Kelsey Tyssowski, a graduate student in genetics at Harvard Medical School. Different experiences stimulate different patterns of activity in brain cells. Researchers want to track these activity patterns to better understand how the brain makes sense of the world, but they’ve been limited by the transient nature of the activity and by the tiny fraction of neurons they’re able to study at once—only a few thousand out of an estimated 100 billion.

Secrets of Secretion

Harvard Medical School

Newly published research shows that a protein long known to play pivotal roles in cell secretion—the basis of cell-to-cell communication—also ensures that a key lipid is present when needed to ensure efficient cell communication. The observations can help explain what allows cells to secrete chemicals at the right place when they receive a “fire away” signal. The findings may have implications for neurologic and other diseases marked by impaired cellular secretion.
