Researchers at Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience have developed a photo-inducible CaMKII inhibitor to study intracellular signaling cascades.
As we learn, the structure of individual neurons in our brains change to strengthen important connections and weaken less important ones, a process known as structural plasticity. In Ryohei Yasuda’s laboratory at Max Planck…
