Dysfunctional precursor protein impairs making of new neurons in brain.

Amyloid precursor protein (APP) modulates the many processes through which newborn neurons are generated in the adult brain, state researchers from Baylor College of Medicine in a new study. An important component of the proper formation of these neurons are the GABAergic interneurons, which maintain a state of homeostasis between excitation and inhibition. When new neurons are generated from neural
