Scientists made the discovery about the function of axons, parts of nerve cells. The axons is the processes by which cells communicate with each other. Information about the study published in PLoS Biology.
In the nervous system works the mechanism of axonal guidance. Special molecules indicate the direction of growth of the axon, allowing you to build the right connections in the nervous system.
The concentration of the protein from cell signaling determines the ability to perceive the pulse. If the protein concentration is insufficient, in the chain can hit another nerve cell and nerve impulse will go astray. Scientists believe that the discovery will help in the treatment of diseases associated with degenerative diseases of the nervous system.
