RIKEN researchers report neurons in the locus coeruleus play a key role in emotional and flexible learning.
Study identifies a key role locus coeruleus neurons play in attentional control.
According to a new study, brief exposure to mild trauma or sudden sounds can permanently alter neural networks and form long lasting memories.
Adults with mild cognitive impairment (MCI), a precursor to Alzheimer's disease, have greater pupil dilation when taking cognitive tests than their cognitively normal peers. Task-evoked pupillary response may be a cost-effective, and low invasive screening test for those at genetic risk for Alzheimer's before the symptoms of the disease take hold.
Findings could help researchers develop new treatments for stressed induced anxiety and other disorders.
Exercise increases levels of galanin in the brain stem, making mice more resilient to stress.
A new study sheds light on how the brain changes as a result of chronic stress. Selective noradrenaline release rewires connectivity patterns between different brain regions. Activity in the amygdala and networks that process sensory stimuli increased.
A new study reveals a link between a vulnerability to depression and noradrenergic neurons.
