Nicotine exposure significantly altered the metabolism and secretion of serotonin, acetylcholine, kynurenic acid, and choline in HT22 hippocampal cells. Findings suggest nicotine could have neuroprotective properties and provide cognitive enhancement.
Researchers have identified a novel neural circuit that detects male pheromone cues pertaining to inter-male aggression.
People with schizotypal traits exhibited increased structural connectivity probability within the task control network and default mode network. They also had increased variability and decreased stability of functional connectivity within the DMN and between the auditory and subcortical networks.
Researchers have identified the structural basis for SARS-CoV-2 inhibition by the drug Remdesivir. The findings reveal a potential binding pattern that offers support for the design of new, more efficient, and specific anti-COVID-19 drugs.
A new study reveals neurons in the V4 area of the visual cortex do not necessarily need to have low visual resolution.
Musical training may enhance the ability to process speech in noisy settings, a new study reveals.
