Multimodal sensory processing in Caenorhabditis elegans. AoS

During their lifetime, organisms need to adapt to the environment by evaluating and responding to numerous and diverse external cues. The nervous system senses these cues and integrates them, a process called multisensory integration. Research on sensory

How cancer cells communicate with nervous and immune systems

In the last decade, studies have shown that cancer cells can influence their environment and bi-directionally communicate with other systems including immune and nervous systems. The neuro-immune interaction is a key player in influencing cancer development and

Peptides (small proteins) sharing an active nerve cell protecting site

Activity-dependent neuroprotective protein (ADNP), essential for brain formation, is frequently mutated in children on the autism spectrum. This protein, together with Activity-dependent neurotrophic factor (ADNF) are two proteins that were discovered in the laboratory of Prof. Illana
