Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: New tool to study how neuronal networks recover their function after neuron loss

(University of Barcelona) A multidisciplinary study led by UB researchers has developed a new experimental tool that enables the application of focalized damage on an in vitro neuronal network of only a few millimetres and record the evolution of the whole network. One of the main conclusions is that the network quickly activates self-regulation mechanisms that reinforce the existing connections and restore the functionality of the circuit.
