More Brain-Building Insight from Boomer
Brain Research to Keep Memories Fresher Longer
In the spring of 2015, a University of Virginia postdoctoral fellow, Antione Louveau, was gazing through a microscope, taking what he thought would be an unrewarding glance at the distribution of immune cells in a mouse meninge – that is, the membrane surrounding the animal’s brain. But what he saw took his breath: The cells were arranged in a pattern suggesting a network of lymphatic vessels.
Yet, no such physiological structures were known to exist … “When I first saw this, it was hard to believe my eyes,” said Jonathan Kipnis, a UVA professor of neurology who oversaw the research and directs the school’s Center for Brain Immunology and Glia. Like most brain scientists, he “thought the [brain] was mapped; I did not believe there were structures we did not know about.”
The findings had major implications for brain science.
