Researchers believe they might have identified a new abnormality in the relationship between dopamine and response to food in those with obesity.
A new study explores the connection between mechanical ventilation and hippocampal damage in ICU patients.
Researchers investigate the role the dopamine 2 receptor plays in psychosis.
A new study reports on how dopamine can regulate itself.
A neuroimaging study on house sparrows reveals changes in the dopaminergic system could be a physiological mechanism underlying the negative behavioral effects of chronic stress. The findings shed light on stress and resilience in wildlife and humans.
A new study reveals insight into the mechanisms underlying alcohol addiction.
New evidence that receptors for brain’s ‘reward’ chemical provide protection. Brain scans of two strains of mice imbibing significant quantities...
Researchers report a blockade of D2 receptors in interneurons can increase acetylcholine signaling above threshold on neighboring neurons, resulting in motor abnormalities.
A new study reveals a lack of dopamine transmission via D1 receptors disrupts information flow in the basal ganglia and can cause difficulty in initiating voluntary movements for Parkinson's patients.
Researchers have pinpointed how brain activity changes in mouse models of Parkinson's disease, providing clues as to what may drive symptoms of the disease in humans.
