- Bringing Nerve Cells Together
   The initial formation of the synaptic connections that enable neurons to
   communicate with each other is a complex process, with newly formed
   synapses helping to direct how a dendrite will grow.
   http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/02-2004/msg08.html

- Anti-Obesity Drugs Could Increase Risk Of Colorectal Cancer

   http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/02-2004/msg06.html

- Cerebral Malaria Often Misdiagnosed
   The findings in this study will be important for correctly identifying
   cerebral malaria patients for future clinical trials and have new
   implications for diagnosing cerebral malaria.
   http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/02-2004/msg05.html

- Protecting Baby
   A systemic change occurs in the immune systems of pregnant women that

   harmful autoimmune reactions.
   http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/02-2004/msg04.html

- Down Syndrome Gene Helps Brain Cells Connect
   Every one of the trillion cells in the brain may have a unique identity,

   implicated in Down syndrome.
   http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/02-2004/msg03.html

   and memory deficits.
   http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/01-2004/msg20.html

- New Method Identifies Human microRNA Targets

   selectively silence genes, has revealed a new mode of gene regulation
   that scientists believe has a broad impact on both plant and animal
   cells.
