Study reveals the role of the urea cycle in the brain and explores the dual nature of astrocytes in the brains of those with Alzheimer's pathology.
Researchers have identified a molecule in the blood that is produced during exercise. The molecule, Lac-Phe, can effectively reduce food intake and obesity in mouse models.
The absence of the NCX3 gene amplifies pain signals within the spinal cord, a new mouse study reveals. Increasing levels of NCX3 in the spinal cord helped reduce symptoms associated with chronic pain.
Researchers developed a new method for producing high numbers of human photoreceptor cells. The human photoreceptor cells can be transplanted in bulk to partially degenerated mouse retinas and improve the detection of daylight in mice with damaged eyesight.
Study reveals the mechanism by which genes coding for a subset of long non-coding RNA interacts with neighboring genes to regulate the development and function of cortical neurons.
Exposure to the opioid fentanyl induces autism-like behaviors in mice by activating mu-opioid receptors in the anterior cingulate cortex.
Using only enzymes, researchers were able to change synapses between inhibitory and excitatory types.
Infiltrating gliomas are shaped by their genetic evolution and microenvironment, researchers report. The findings may help in the development of therapies to treat glioma brain tumors.
Researchers identified LIPE, a lipase that degrades triglycerides to produce fatty acids, as a potential new target for the development of treatments for Parkinson's disease.
