The evolution of worms, insects, vertebrates and other “bilateral” animals—those with distinct left and right sides—from less complex creatures like jellyfish and sea anemones with “radial” symmetry may have been facilitated by the emergence of a completely new "operating system" for controlling genetic instructions in the cell.
Biology Professors Andrew Huberman, Massimo Scanziani and Yishi Jin are leading four teams of scientists at UC San Diego which were recently awarded research grants from the National Institutes of Health that will help lay the groundwork for visualizing the circuits of the brain and how they work.
The three biologists join four other research teams at the university that in August were awarded early concept grants for brain research from the National Science Foundation.
