Using CRISPR gene editing techniques, researchers create modified skin grafts that rapidly degrade cocaine and reduce drug seeking behaviors in mouse models of addiction.
By optimizing neurons with CRISPR gene editing technology, researchers will have new ways to study genetic influences on brain health and disease, a new study reports.
A new study reveals mosquitoes can learn to associate a particular odor to an unpleasant shock, much like being swatted. Researchers report the insects tend to avoid the scent following the experience.
Mouse study identifies specific neurons and a signaling pathway to regions of the hindbrain that mediate sexual reproductive activity and physical activity that appear to influence activity behaviors during ovulation. The findings may provide valuable insights into how estrogen loss during menopause disrupts this activity.
