An atlas of the salamander brain and its regenerative abilities

An international team of scientists with Elly Tanaka (IMP) has mapped out all cell types in the salamander forebrain. In a colossal effort, they created an atlas of the axolotl forebrain and characterised the cells that give this animal the extraordinary ability to regenerate its neurons after an injury. Their results, alongside two other studies of the salamander brain, are now published in the journal Science.
