Zajimavy zpusob hledani neuronu.

A gene-by-gene, neuron-by-neuron search has turned up a new breed of brain cell that may serve as a fine-scale “volume control” for neural activity in humans.

He and other researchers from the Allen Institute zeroed in on the rosehip neurons using genetics: In collaboration with neuroscientists from the J. Craig Venter Institute and other research centers, they looked for gene expression patterns that distinguished different types of brain cells in humans and in mice.

There was at least one type of brain cell that had no analog in the mouse brain, and when Tamás visited the Allen Institute to discuss his research, the researchers from Hungary and Seattle realized they were aiming at the same target.
