Abstract: A panorama gives a wide view that a series of snapshots only suggests, and a new study provides such a perspective on how two signaling molecules kill neurons. The work brings into focus the roles of nitric oxide and zinc in strangling overexcited brain cells. It might help researchers in their efforts to prevent brain damage associated with several age-related conditions.
