How long projecting neurons couple the movement of our limbs

We humans walk with our feet. This is true, but not entirely. Walking, as part of locomotion, is a coordinated whole-body movement that involves both the arms and legs. Researchers at the Biozentrum of the University of Basel and the Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research have identified different subpopulations of neurons in the spinal cord with long projections.

Call systems: every hospital patient is familiar with them, but hardly anyone gives any thought to how they work. And yet they fulfill an important function because in an emergency, they “call” for help. Just think what might happen if they didn’t work.

Airports: Dangerous germs travel as stowaways

mHealth interventions: no silver bullet for diabetes patients

Globally about 442 million people live with diabetes, most of them in low-income countries, where health systems often function poorly.
