Armed with advanced genetics, stem-cell technology and neuroscience, these two scientists are mapping the genetic factors that make the human brain unique.
The findings provide new insight into the link between seizures and tumor progression and can help develop improved diagnostics and treatments for a deadly form of brain cancer.
A Columbia study in mice shows how special cells in the nose help the brain to distinguish between the world’s near-infinite combinations of scents.
A Double-edged Sword: Scientists Identify Gene That Initially Slows, Then Later Accelerates, Disease Progression of ALS in Mice
The Columbia study underscores the complexities of deadly neurodegenerative disease and offers promising strategies to target disease’s underlying genetic mechanisms.
Columbia professor of biological sciences and Data Science Institute member Rafael Yuste founded the NeuroRights Initiative, which advocates for the responsible and ethical development of neurotechnology.
