RIT aims to build neurons from scratch

A researcher at the Rochester Institute of Technology has teamed up with universities across the country to build a neuron from scratch, the work at RIT is funded through a $570,000 grant from the National Science Foundation. The funding is set to last through August 2023. The neuron is one of the basic structures of the brain and nervous system. The next step is to build a synapse, which is how neurons communicate. The researchers said, “One neuron by itself is not going to do anything. Neurons have to be able to talk to each other.” RIT is a member of NYSERNet’s R&E Network.
