A new study hones in on one particular region of the zebrafish brain which could provide better understanding of the neural circuitry underlying nicotine addiction.
New research shows the hypothalamus can directly control reproductive functions in rhesus monkeys. The researchers believe it is likely to perform the same actions in human women.
Researchers report on how nerve cells recycle vesicles. The findings suggest the process is much faster and different that previously proposed.
Modifications of the SUMO protein helps to control communications between brain cells.
Researchers present a new theory which explains how critical periods are triggered during neurodevelopment.
Researchers discover three specific drugs affect three different kinds of neurotransmitter receptors which all appear to play roles in Fragile X.
A new study has discovered a key mechanism that boosts the signalling functions of neurons in the brain.
Researchers report the discovery of a crucial part of the biological clock: the wiring that sets its accuracy to within a few minutes out of the 1440 minutes per day. The wiring uses GABA to connect the individual cells of the biological clock in a fast network which changes strength with the time of day.
Modifying the levels of tomosyn protein in the hippocampus of mice, researchers noted over production of the protein led to a sharp decline in the ability to learn and memorize information.
