Astrocyte layers in the mammalian cerebral cortex revealed by a single-cell in situ transcriptomic map
Although the cerebral cortex is organized into six excitatory neuronal layers, it is unclear whether glial cells show distinct layering. In the present study, we developed a high-content pipeline, the large-area spatial transcriptomic (LaST) map, which can quantify single-cell gene expression in situ. Screening 46 candidate genes for astrocyte diversity across the mouse cortex, we […]

New study identifies specific brain cell affected in multiple sclerosis patients
A recent study has revealed that “antibody-producing immune cells are related to the damage of the important projection neurons in MS brains. This suggests that cell therapies targeting these immune cells could protect projection neurons and provide a novel treatment for progressive MS.” (Professor David Rowitch, Head of Department of Paediatrics and senior scientist […]
