Turning unexpected results into research tools

Content

“We expected that GtACR2 would inhibit the release of neurotransmitters, but surprisingly the neurons did just the opposite,” said first author Jessica Messier, who is a McNair M.D./Ph.D. Scholar in the Medical Scientist Training Program at Baylor College of Medicine. “We were puzzled by these unexpected results and investigated the causes.”

Pay attention to the ‘noise’ in your brain

Content

In a recent study, Dr. George Denfield and his colleagues found evidence that variability can be attributed to fluctuations in internally generated signals like attention, so that the more one’s attention is split, the “noisier” the neuronal responses appear to be from the outside.

Researchers gain insight into how the intestine repairs itself

Content

Researchers have gained new insights into how the small intestine, one of the fastest renewing tissues in the human body, repairs itself after injury caused by intestinal rotavirus infection. Winnie Zou, a student in the Medical Scientist Training Program (M.D./Ph.D.) in Dr. Mary Estes’ lab at Baylor, was first author of the paper published in Cell Reports.
