Mysterious cilia in the brain play a crucial role in the perception of time

(ORDO NEWS) — A remarkable brain study has been published in the journal Molecular Neurobiology.

In particular, scientists from the University of California at Irvine in the United States of America have achieved high results in another experiment on mice.

As noted, small organelles in the brain play a decisive role in the perception of time. They were once considered a relic of the ancient past.

The researchers used in their scientific work the method of gene manipulation to remove cilia in mice. This provoked a dramatic effect.

All cilia have common parameters, that is, there is a need to change behavior in response to changes in the external environment in a specific time frame.

However, scientists have not been able to answer how the results of this experiment are related to people.

Scientists expressed the opinion that the cilia of the human brain work in the same way as in mice. Experts will try to answer this question after additional work.
