For the rhinestone in the brain responsible individual nerve cells can be disabled. About it tell results of research of specialists from China in the journal Nature Neuroscience.
Fear in animals can cause certain odors. In the experiment, the researchers found: when a mouse is in fear of the animal, in the brain there is a sharp increase in the activity of neurons synthesizing gamma-aminobutyric acid.
If these neurons off using methods optogenetic and neutrons SOM, fear of the animal just disappears. Scientists suggest, the knowledge gained in the area of the brain that help to better understand the nature of diseases of the human nervous system. In the future this experience will be the basis for the development of new effective drugs and therapies.
