Study maps neurogenetics of dendritic growth and formation.


A neuron is an electrically excitable cell that processes and transmits information through electrical and chemical signals in the brain. These signals between neurons occur via synapses, which connect to other brain cells to form neural networks.  A healthy neuron consists of a cell body (soma), dendrites, and an axon.  Dendrites are thin structures that arise from the cell body,
