The project this week aims to identify neurons that create rhythmic signals. Those signals can be used to breathe for instance, but also for walking or timing movement.
The next project aims to fund the training of scientist to learn how to use light to affect neuron cells. Although this is not a research project by itself, training scientists always an improvement and in this case it will help the overall community of brain researchers.
The next experiment pledge aims to complete the understanding of how neurons survive in the brain. In particular, neuron cells need myelin in order to cover part of the axon with it. Myelin is fabricated by other cells in the brain. This study aims to study the myelin production and how it can be affected.
