Researchers Rescue Embryos From Brain Defects by Re-Engineering Cellular Voltage Patterns

Tuesday, October 9, 2018 - 09:30 in Health & Medicine

Tufts biologists have demonstrated for the first time that electrical patterns in developing embryos can be predicted, mapped and manipulated to prevent defects caused by harmful substances such as nicotine. The study suggests that targeting bioelectric states may be a new treatment modality for regenerative repair in brain development and disease.
