Moving in a single file

Sheep in the field alternate graphing phases when they are static or moving slowly and phases when they are moving, at a higher speed, in most cases collectively in a single file. We investigate the rules that could explain these intermittent file movements.

Remodeling the hippocampus for allowing Alzheimer's mice to remember others

This study led by Laure Verret (CRCA-CBI) and collaborators from Toulouse and Paris, published in iScience, shows that mice modeling Alzheimer's disease are unable to remember a conspecific, and that this is associated with anatomical and functional abnormalities in CA2. However, a single injection of the protein NRG1 into CA2 restores social memory ability of Alzheimer's mice.
