Rezeptorsignale in Nervenzellen steuern und sichtbar machen
Dieses neue Werkzeug schlägt zwei Fliegen mit einer Klappe. Künftig könnte es bei der Erforschung verschiedener Krankheiten helfen. (mehr)


Light receptors determine the behaviour of flashlight fish
Bioluminescence is a phenomenon especially in marine environments. However, how it affects animal behaviour is difficult to analyse and to predict. A new study is shedding light on this phenomenon. (mehr)


Investigating the origins of spinocerebellar ataxia 6
Scientists at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum established a mouse model for the human disease SCA6. SCA6 is characterized by movement deficits and caused by similar genetic alterations as Chorea Huntington. The mouse model will be used to investigate the disease mechanisms. Experiments suggest that an impairment of eye blink conditioning could be an early disease symptom. The team from the Department of Zoology and Neurobiology published their data in “The Journal of Neuroscience”; the work was highlighted by the editor’s commentary. (mehr)
