Five years ago, a team of Vanderbilt engineers wondered: Is it possible to address epileptic seizures in a less invasive way? […]

Research Shows Neurons “Fine Tuned” For Electrical Imbalances

Neurons actively ‘fine tune’ for electrical imbalances at the genetic level, MU research finds Neurons are electrically charged cells, located in the nervous system, that interpret and transmit information using electrical and chemical signals. Now, researchers at the University of Missouri have determined that individual neurons can react differently to electrical signals at the molecular […]
