Researchers led by VIB-KU Leuven discover a population of specialized brain-resident white blood cells in the mouse and human brain, and show that the presence of these lymphocytic cells is essential for normal brain development in mice. The team states these results contribute towards the increasing recognition of the role of circulating immune cells in the brain and their involvement in a range of neurological diseases.

New role for white blood cells in the developing brain.

Our onboard computer, the brain, is a sterile environment separated from the immune system by the blood-brain barrier (BBB), which is why it has its own resident immune cells, known … Continue Reading New role for white blood cells in the developing brain.

New olfactory receptor identified in the human bladder and bladder cancer.

Manual body regulation is a relatively new theory that explores controlling the body, and its related processes via neurons, neuronal colonies, and neuron-like cells supplanted throughout our systems manually.  Olfactory … Continue Reading New olfactory receptor identified in the human bladder and bladder cancer.

Novel viral vectors deliver useful cargo to neurons throughout the brain and body.

Viruses have evolved to be highly effective vehicles for delivering genes into cells, with these vectors becoming critical in delivering genes to treat disease or label neurons. As viral vectors … Continue Reading Novel viral vectors deliver useful cargo to neurons throughout the brain and body.
