UCLA biologists have discovered how head injuries are adversely affecting individual cells and genes that can lead to serious brain disorders. The life scientists provide the first cell "atlas" of the hippocampus-the part of the brain that helps regulate learning and memory when it is affected by traumatic brain injury.
