Research identifies ‘volume control’ in the brain that supports learning and memory

A “molecular volume knob” regulating electrical signals in the brain helps with learning and memory, according to a Dartmouth study. The molecular system controls the width of electrical signals that flow across synapses between neurons. The finding of the control mechanism, and the identification of the molecule that regulates it, could help researchers in their […]
