Study shows how astrocytes regulate formation of synapses in neurodevelopment.


During brain development, the formation of neuronal synapses at the right time, in the right place, and of the right strength is crucial to the ongoing function of the brain throughout life.  However, just how that happens, and which molecular signals are involved is still not fully understand.  Now, a study from researchers at the Salk Institute shows that brain
