Research hints that the energy-generating organelles of cells may play a surprisingly pivotal role in mediating anxiety and depression.
Long-overlooked “tunneling nanotubes” and other bridges between cells act as conduits for sharing RNA, proteins or even whole organelles.
Researchers are building a case that long before the nervous system works, the brain sends crucial bioelectric signals to guide the growth of embryonic tissues.
With electrical signals, simple cells organize themselves into complex societies and negotiate with other colonies.
