Fat influences decisions taken by brain cells for production and survival

Swedish scientists from the Karolinska Institute have identified two molecules, cholic acid and 24, 25-epoxycholesteriol,  that play an important role in the survival and production of nerve cells in the brain, including nerve cells that produce dopamine. The discovery, which is published in the journal Nature Chemical Biology, may be significant in the long term for the treatment of several diseases, such as Parkinson's disease.
