Is Alzheimer's the result of a widespread, gradually mounting defect in brain biochemistry to which neurons for memory and cognition are particularly vulnerable, like canaries in a coal mine? I have finished reading From Neuron To Brain by Stephen Kuffler, John Nicholls, and Robert Martin. The á-Syn clumps caused progressive loss of dopamine neurons in the connected substantia nigra region of the brain. As a log, this has not worked out so far. Everything our brains do for us depends on neurons communicating. So even as the brain is constructing a branchlike communication network, it is also beginning to pare down the number of neurons in the brain in order to ease overload, making experience key to wiring an infant's brain. For this study, the MIT team used optogenetics to control neuron activity with light. DAI is a “stretching” injury to the neurons (the cell bodies of the brain) and axons (fibers that allow for communication from one neuron to another neuron). BRAIN POWER: From Neurons to Networks is a 10-minute film and accompanying TED Book (ted.com/tedbooks) from award-winning Director Tiffany Shlain and her team at The Moxie Institute. A number of topics in the book would have made good blog entries. Research published in the journal Neuron shows that NMDA receptors on dopamine neurons in the brain's basal ganglia are essential to habit formation.
