It is one of the only research centers in the world that allows scientists to study extreme environments, from a mile of ocean depth to nearly 23 miles into Earth’s stratosphere, and everything in between. And it is back up and running in its home at the University at Buffalo.
For decades, scientists thought acetylcholine was the only neurotransmitter responsible for controlling how muscles and nerves are wired together during development. Turns out, they were wrong.

Researchers at the University at Buffalo and Johns Hopkins University reported their findings with mice in the Journal of Neuroscience.
