Using magnetic nanoparticles, researchers were able to stimulate the adrenal glands of rodents and control the release of stress-related hormones. The approach could be applied to humans to treat hormone-related disorders.
CALCR, a type of neuron found in the medulla of mice, may hold the key to the development of drugs that can effectively curb overeating and fight obesity in humans.
An opinion article reports on a potential common cause for both SIDS and SUDEP. The reason sudden death may occur is due to a person's inability to wake when CO2 levels in the blood rise, as a result of dysfunctional serotonin neurons in the midbrain.
A new study reveals pesticide chlorpyrifos have clear impact on brain development in Northern Leopard frogs.
Researchers have confirmed previous findings linking abnormalities in serotonin to sudden death in infants. It is hoped the findings will help other researchers to develop biomarkers to identify infants at increased risk of SIDS.
A new study reveals how brain activity alters when presented with desirable foods.
A new study provides insights into the neural origins of hot flashes associated with menopause.
