Researchers at the Pittsburgh University; have recently uncovered the mechanism by which neurons maintain the process of simultaneous sending of signals to other neurons. The new findings that were made in mice and fruit flies are challenging the existing principle about how the chemical signals that are released by the neurons; dopamine communicates. These may have important associations for many of the dopamine-related diseases, including the Parkinson’s disease, schizophrenia, and addiction.
