Selection for Neuroblastoma Cells that Synthesize Certain Transmitters
Description:
The genetic-neural code parallel that intrigued Nirenberg is showcased in the opening line of this article, which states: "It seems likely that a universal code has evolved which enables neurons to communicate with one another by sending and receiving information encoded in the form of neurotransmitters." The potential consequences of this statement are revealed in the article. By demonstrating the ability to synthesize transmitters, the authors suggest this could lead to a clearer understanding of the entire nervous system.
