The ventral striatum, a small part of the brain’s basal ganglia, directs behavior by assigning a reward dimension to everyday items, according to a recent study.
A recent study found that stability of chromatin structures across DNA replication requires cooperation between a histone chaperone and DNA replication machinery; a mechanism of epigenetic inheritance.
Northwestern Medicine scientists have discovered that amacrine cells produce nitric oxide, a neuromodulator that regulates blood dilation, in a recently published study.
The Simpson Querrey Center for Epigenetics is connecting the Northwestern academic and medical community to integrate the study of epigenetics into science and clinical care.
Northwestern Medicine scientists have discovered a mechanism for rapid, fine adjustments in motor plans, according to a recent study.
In a study published in Nature, Northwestern Medicine scientists have demonstrated that a gene is critical for the development of the ear’s outer hair cells, which has important implications for hearing loss treatments.
Scientists have developed soft materials that assemble and disassemble on demand, opening the door for applications including robotics, drug delivery and tissue regeneration.
A protein facilitating DNA replication during cell cycle also binds microtubules, findings that could inform more effective cancer treatments, according to a recent study published in the Journal of Cell Biology.
