, said in an interview.
Through their work, Barres
and his team made discoveries concerning the role of certain glial cells and also found out the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying the kind of brain tissue degeneration seen in Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and Huntington's diseases, and multiple sclerosis and glaucoma.
also showed that the astrocytes appeared to play a crucial role in forming synapses, the microscopic connections between neurons that encode memory.
In our study, we have identified the molecular carrier in human gametes that may be responsible for this effect," says Barres

98; Germain 78).
Our findings suggest that long before the [nerve] cells die, their synapses are dying," Barres
