American scientists were able to identify some of the cells of the brain, responsible for the operation of conditioned reflexes. They also found that these cells are usually first affected with Tourette’s syndrome, Parkinson’s disease and other incurable ailments. Their results, the researchers shared with the edition of Neuron, says “Orthodox”.
Scientists talk about neurons, located in the region of the brain known as the striatum. It is, according to the study authors, is the main regulator of conditioned reflexes. In experiments conducted on rodents, scientists have found that specific neurons striped body associated with some incurable diseases of the brain and Central nervous system. Scientists just have to be aware of the breakthrough they made, finding these cells.
Experts say that in the near future will hold some more experiments on animals to increase their knowledge of the discovered correlation.
