Scientists Discover How Neurons for Vision Come About

“New York University biologists have identified a mechanism that helps explain how the diversity of neurons that make up the visual system is generated,” writes Medical News Today. “’Our research uncovers a process that dictates both timing and cell survival in order to engender the heterogeneity of neurons used for vision,’ explains NYU Biology Professor Claude Desplan, the study's senior author.” Their study appears in the latest issue of Cell.
