TCR signal strength controls the differentiation of CD4 - Science


Science
T cell differentiation into effector and memory T cell subsets is influenced by T cell receptor (TCR) signals. Snook et al. examine how TCR signals influence CD4+ T cell differentiation using a panel of cloned TCRs that recognize the same MHC II ...

Auditory Processing Disorder
Australia

People who have normal hearing actually hear far more than they perceive. Where hearing is a function of the ear, auditory processing - listening - is a function of the brain. Auditory processing describes the way the brain assigns significance and meaning to the sounds in the environment. Effective auditory processing involves a relatively high speed of information transfer. It also requires a good attention span, a well-functioning memory, and
