How cells divide tasks and conquer work
Despite advances in neuroscience, the brain is still very much a black box. No one even knows how many different types of neurons exist! Now, a Salk Institute scientist uses a mathematical viewpoint to better understand how cell types divide up the work of the brain.

Gene cross-talk is key to a cell's balance
Things couldn't be simpler at the beginning of life: a cell divides into two identical cells, that then divide again. This means any cell can grow at an exponential rate. But a moment comes when some of these cells must develop into specialized cells to create tissues with complicated functions to support a complex organism such as a fly, a fish, or a human. On the back of a fly, for example, a cell must "know" to split, so it can become two fundamentally different cells: one a hair cell — the other a nerve cell.

Mice reveal role of human brown fat
When it gets cold, your body turns up the heat to maintain a stable temperature. That heat is produced by brown adipose tissue, or brown fat, which also affects how our body uses glucose. But scientists don't completely understand this interaction. In part, this is the result of not having an animal model with similar brown fat. Now, a discovery that mice also have brown fat deposits similar to those found in people, is revealing more on how temperature regulation works.
