Using optogenetics to manipulate the brains of opioid addicted mice, researchers discover a neural pathway that appears to be responsible for symptoms of withdrawal.
Researchers were able to dampen hyperexcitability associated with seizure disorders in rodent models by inducing biochemical alterations with glucosamine, a dietary supplement.
A new study has identified rare genetic variation in the Thorase protein that causes the breakdown of receptors at the connections between neurons in the brain. The anti-epilepsy drug perampanel can help reverse anti-social behaviors linked to schizophrenia that are associated with this genetic variation.
A new study reports a protein made by astrocytes plays a critical role in brain plasticity by assisting with neural maturation and flexibility.
