Neuronal Tumor Cells With Excitable Membranes Grown In Vitro
Description:
This article is representative of the shift in Marshall Nirenberg's research toward neurobiology after 1966. Here, Nirenberg's collaborative work suggests that mouse tumor cells are capable of generating action potentials that are characteristic of healthy neurons. The suggestion that this phenomenon might be explained by genetic characteristics further reveals Nirenberg's belief that his work in neurobiology was a logical progression.
