Study reveals a motif on the 93-series compound fits into a tiny pocket within the NMDA receptor. The findings could lead to new treatment options for stroke and seizures, researchers report.
Researchers have identified some of the key neurobiological mechanisms that help keep aggression under control. The findings could help develop targeted treatments to help those with aggressive problems associated with psychological disorders.
Researchers have discovered a previously unknown mechanism that allows neural networks to protect against the spread of secondary brain damage as seen in TBI and ischemic stroke.
Researchers discover the xanthohumol, a flavinoid found in hops, can improve cognitive function in young mice but not in older animals.
Researchers discover a gene already associated with longevity also improves memory and learning. The findings could help develop new treatments for cognitive decline.
A new study has identified neural circuits in mice which are involved in the learning and altering of behaviors. The findings could have implications for alcoholism and other addictive behaviors.
A new study provides clues into how the function of the most common NMDA receptor subtypes may be manipulated for clinical benefit. NMDA receptors have been implicated in a number of neurological and psychological disease, from Alzheimer's to schizophrenia.
