Researchers were able to dampen hyperexcitability associated with seizure disorders in rodent models by inducing biochemical alterations with glucosamine, a dietary supplement.
A new study reports microglia can diminish the adverse changes to neural circuitry bought on by chronic cocaine use.
Researchers discover a protein switch which can increase or decrease memory building, depending on the signal it detects.
A new study reports brown fat interacts with secretin, a gut hormone, to signal the feeling of fullness to the brain while eating.
A new study sheds light on the genetic basis of fox behaviors and, researchers say, the findings could have implications for human behavior. The study reports the SorCS1 gene contributes to social behaviors in foxes.
A metabolite created as the body breaks down ketamine could hold the key to understanding its antidepressant action, a new study reports.
Researchers report neurons in the cerebellum send out their electrical signals either as a constant hum or in sudden bursts, depending on the voltage that crosses their cell membranes.
A new study reports a protein made by astrocytes plays a critical role in brain plasticity by assisting with neural maturation and flexibility.
According to a new study, postmortem brain tissue from females who suffered from depression had abnormally high expression levels of a number of genes which regulate the glutamate system.
A new study has identified rare genetic variation in the Thorase protein that causes the breakdown of receptors at the connections between neurons in the brain. The anti-epilepsy drug perampanel can help reverse anti-social behaviors linked to schizophrenia that are associated with this genetic variation.
