  • RE: Migration bound to neurotransmitter

    The chemical gradient acting as a differentiation inducing transcription activator has been known for some time even in public press (Circa Matt Ridley : genome: the autobiography of a species in 23 chapters Published Harper Collins). The fact that neurotransmitters also act as hormones has been described. The plasticity of developing infantile brain is also a known fact
    The inducibility of neuronal differentiation, especially in the postnatal brain, using these transmitters by stem cell migration is an interesting question and i hope will be answered by this study (atleast partially). So many infants and babies suffer a lifetime of morbidity due to the hypoxic ischemic insult in the perinatal period and also due to prematurity! If there is an antibody to use against the GABAergic mediated neuronal apoptosis , entire generations may emerge with a functional life
