New Nerve Cells for the Adult Brain
Contrary to dogma, the human brain does produce
new nerve cells in adulthood. Can our newfound capacity lead to better treatments for neurological diseases?

A new link between pesticides and Parkinson’s disease
Environmental factors are thought to be an important cause of Parkinson’s disease. A new study shows that rats chronically treated with the mitochondrial inhibitor rotenone, a common pesticide, develop neuropathological and behavioral symptoms of Parkinsonism.
