How is it possible that so many different and highly specific neurons arise in the brain? A mathematic model developed by researchers from the University of Basel's Biozentrum demonstrates that different variants of genes enable such a random diversity. The scientists describe in "Cell Reports" that despite countless numbers of newly formed neurons, the genetic variants equip neurons individually and precisely for their specific function.
