Scientists at the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases in Bonn have gained new insights into the early phase of the brain's development. In cooperation with researchers of the Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology, the University of Bonn and other German and international colleagues they identified two proteins that control the formation of cell protuberances. The typical ramifications through which nerve cells receive and forward signals ultimately originate from these outgrowths.
