The "love hormone" oxytocin may not play as critical a role in bonding as previously believed. Removing the oxytocin receptor in animal models still resulted in monogamous mating, attachment, and parental bonding behaviors, although females without the receptor produced milk in smaller quantities. Findings reveal parenting and bonding aren't purely dictated by oxytocin receptors.

People with behavioral variant frontotemporal dementia (bvFTD) exhibit behaviors that are considered socially unacceptable. While there is no current cure for FTD, researchers are finding methods to help inhibit some of the negative behaviors associated with FTD. A new study reports impulsivity and negative behaviors are greatly reduced in those with bvFTD when the patient is focused on a task.

Science research articles covering neurology, brain cancer, traumatic brain injuries, neurosurgery, neuroanatomy, brain research and neurological disorders.

Lower levels of serine and glycine were associated with a higher risk of neuropathic pain in mouse models of diabetes. Supplementing the diets of the mice with serine reduced symptoms of neuropathy. Researchers say the findings provide a new way in which to identify people at risk of diabetic neuropathy and a potential treatment option.

Science research articles cover psychology, depression, mental health, schizophrenia, mental disorders, happiness, stress, PTSD, autism, psychiatry and therapy.

By inhibiting NMDA receptors, ketamine increases noise to gamma frequencies in one layer of the thalamic nucleus and one lay of the somatosensory cortex. Findings suggest psychosis may be triggered by an increase in background noise impairing thalamocortical neurons which may be caused by a malfunction in NMDA receptors affecting the balance of inhibition and excitation in the brain.
