Recent findings from University of Warwick researchers could help find new treatments to control eating habits that lead to obesity. Researchers discovered tanycytes detect amino acids from food and directly 'tell' the brain when we feel full. Certain food, such as chicken, lentils and avocados, activate tanycytes and make us feel fuller quicker.
Researchers from EPFL have uncovered how diazepam, a common anxiolytic, can increase mitochondrial activity in neural pathways associated with motivation.
Inhibition of the P2X4 protein receptor in sensory neurons decreases sensitivity to touch, a new study reports. The findings could have implications for the development of new topical treatments for psoriasis and dermatitis.
The protein Hsp90 may assist cancer cells to grow, a new study reports.
Researchers have identified how the circadian clock helps prime mitochondria to correctly use stored energy when we are not eating.
A new study reports boosting the transport of mitochondria along axons enhances the ability for mouse nerve cells to replace themselves following injury.
Findings could help to design new treatments for mood disorders as effective as lithium, but with fewer side effects.
The retrieval of mitochondria via a feedback loop is vital to sustaining synaptic transmission.
The sense of taste in female mosquitoes is specially tuned to detect at least four different substances in blood.
A new study reports caffeine concentration, the equivalent of four cups of coffee, can promote the movement of a regulatory protein into mitochondria. This can enhance mitochondrial function and protect heart cells from damage.
