Researchers have discovered biological differences between males and females in the molecular regulation of synapses in the hippocampus.
The secretory pathway delivery of cannabinoid type 1 receptor is axonally based, and surface expressed CB1R is more stable in axons than dendrites.
Vanderbilt researchers have mapped a signaling system in the brain that appears to be linked to autism.
Amyloid beta has been implicated in blocking endocannabinoids in the hippocampus; impairing learning and memory long before Alzheimer's plaques form in the brain.
Anandamide, an endogenous compound produced in the body, plays a role in reversing memories of traumatic events. The findings could lead to new treatments for PTSD.
Researchers report the protein FABP5, usually associated with diseases such as cancer and psoriasis, enhances cognitive function.
Cannabinoid receptors have been identified in the central nucleus of the amygdala, a key emotional hub in the brain.
A new study reports on how endocannabinoids are affected by sleep deprivation and whether exercise can modulate the effect.
A new study reports researchers have discovered a mechanism that helps explain how compounds they’re developing can suppress schizophrenia-like symptoms in mice without side effects.
