Brain Activity Causes DNA Breaks in Neurons

“Physiologic Brain Activity Causes DNA Double-Strand Breaks in Neurons, with Exacerbation by Amyloid-ß,” Nature Neuroscience, posted online March 24, 2013:

“Our study shows that exploratory activity, which is associated with physiological increases in neuronal activity and the encoding of new information, causes widespread increases in neuronal DSBs.”
