Throughout evolution, prey animals have adopted a range of strategies to evade their predators. But often these elaborate strategies come at a cost. For example, looking out for and fleeing from predators involves a great deal of cognitive capacity and energy. Camouflage, on the other hand, may complicate the animals' search for mates, and it largely limits their freedom of movement to the matching background.

Now, researchers use an insect version of this challenge to show for the first time that modern pesticides damage the nervous system of honeybees so that it becomes hard for them to walk in a straight line.

The brain is in principle capable of far more repair than it actually undertakes in practice. This is generally true of most tissues, since the processes and pathways of developmental growth still exist. New neurons can be produced by neural stem cells, and the synaptic connections between neurons can be rearranged to bypass damage, where possible. It is all a matter of finding the right points of control for cellular activities. With that in mind, researchers here demonstrate a way to upregulate neuroplasticity and show that, this approach produces improved function in mice, even comparatively late in the treatment of stroke damage. In addition to neuroprotective strategies, neuroregenerative processes could provide targets for stroke recovery. However, the upregulation of inhibitory chondroitin sulfate proteoglycans (CSPGs) impedes […]
