An international group of scientists reported a rosy discovery. They found a new neuron which was never described before. What makes it unique is that these neuronal brain cell with its exclusive gene expressions, idiosyncratic shape and assorted networks was not described before and now in mice .
“Why the Name Rosehip”
The axonal boutons of rosehip neurons appeared like the large ‘rosehip’ and has compact arborization. It is called as rosehip neurons because, the dendrites in these brain cells, are condensed with lots of subdivisions along the branching points. Since all this feature gives it a thick bushy look which kind of makes it appear like a rosehip, that’s why they are termed as rosehip neurons by the scientists .
