  • Researchers Find a “Digital” Mechanism Behind Neuronal Changes from Learning

    Neurons react to learning and memory by activating synaptic connections. The mechanisms behind this fundamental process are complex and poorly understood. Researchers at Thomas Jefferson University have found that neuron plasticity operates in a “digital” fashion through nanomodules of discrete size that multiply and strengthen neuronal connections upon stimulation. This breakthrough was published on April 23rd in the journal Nature Neuroscience.
