Abstract: The fast lane or the slow lane will eventually get you to the same place. Similarly, neurons can die quickly or slowly after a stroke, and new work reveals two different proteins that control which route a cell takes. The study clarifies the mechanisms that obliterate neurons and suggests a new target for drug designers.
