Our new publication: Serotonin orchestrates the neuronal regeneration in Alzheimer’s model of zebrafish brain

We are thrilled to announce our latest paper in PLoS Biology. "Neuron-glia interaction through Serotonin-BDNF-NGFR axis enables regenerative neurogenesis in Alzheimer’s model of adult zebrafish brain" Our previous research showed that zebrafish is stunning in generating new neurons in response to Alzheimer's disease. But the molecular mechanism underlying was unknown. Here we identified it! By …
