In the latest work published in the Cellular and Molecular Life Sciences scientists from the Center of Excellence for Neural Plasticity and Brain Disorders BRAINCITY from the Nencki Institute of the Polish Academy of Sciences have shown long term consequences of changes in early gene expression for future deficits in social interactions.
Doctor Matylda Roszkowska and Anna Krysiak, M.Sc. together with the research team working under the supervision of Professor Katarzyna Kalita showed a novel link between disturbances in the process of retrieving the information encoded in genes, and abnormal social behavior in the adulthood.
What is BRAINCITY and what is its purpose? The aim of the BRAINCITY is to advance understanding of neuronal and synaptic plasticity in order to combat the most debilitating and costly human disorders. Reda more
