A Neuron’s Sense of Timing Encodes Information in the Human Brain

For years, research in rats has suggested that when neurons fire relative to their peers—during navigation of spaces in particular—may also encode information. This process, in which the timing of some neurons grows increasingly out of step with their neighbors, is called “phase precession.”  Recent studies have found phase precession in bats and marmosets, and now, a new study has shown that it happens in humans too, strengthening the case that phase precession may occur across species.

Gene Editing Therapy in Early Stages of Huntington’s Disease May Slow Down Symptom Progression, Mouse Study Shows

 In a new study on mice, Johns Hopkins Medicine researchers report that using MRI scans to measure blood volume in the brain can serve as a noninvasive way to potentially track the progress of gene editing therapies for early-stage Huntington’s disease, a neurodegenerative disorder that attacks brain cells.
