Bo Wang studies the flatworms' ability to regenerate nerves, muscle, and other tissue. “One of the big questions we want to answer is how it does this on a genetic level?”
May 25 2022 | Wu Tsai Neuro
Katrin Andreasson discusses how immune cells can cause harmful brain inflammation and contribute to the development of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s disease.
May 25 2022 | Stanford BioX
A new string-like implant can monitor fluctuations in brain chemicals, like a fitness tracker for the brain.
May 25 2022 | Wu Tsai Neuro
With a new study published in Nature, Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute researchers are helping to show that the cerebrospinal fluid that bathes our brains holds clues to healthy brain aging.
New work from Wu Tsai Neuro affiliate Liqun Luo and his lab uses a novel proteomics technique developed through the Neuro-omics initiative to understand how a limited number of genes can specify trillions of unique connections.
Single-cell imaging across the brain’s visual cortex let Wu Tsai Neuro researchers track sensory processing from perception to action, resulting in new insights about the structure of neuronal signaling and new inspiration for computer vision.
The Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute is pleased to welcome Nicholas Wall, PhD, as the new director of the Gene Vector and Virus Core (GVVC), which supports the Stanford neuroscience community through production of powerful viral genetic engineering tools.
May 13 2022 | Wu Tsai Neuro
Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute interdisciplinary postdoctoral scholars Tal Iram and Miguel Garcia have been working to fill in gaps in neuroscience’s understanding of the development, function, and disease-impact of the brain's long-overlooked oligodendrocytes, which produce nerve-wrapping myelin.
