Researchers have identified a reduced exchange of glutamine between astrocytes and neurons in a new Huntington's disease study.
Neuroimaging study identifies differences in cerebral white matter in bipolar patients who do not take lithium.
Study reports the effects of prenatal famine can cause metabolic health problems in offspring up to six decades later.
The enzyme PHD3 plays a critical role in sensing nutrient availability and regulating the ability of muscles to break down fat. Blocking PHD3 production in mice leads to dramatic improvements in specific measures of fitness. Findings shed light on the key mechanism for how cells metabolize fuel and provide a novel understanding of muscle function and fitness.
A new study reveals our longevity and sexual maturity are governed by our brains, not our bodies. Researchers discovered that animals with more neurons in the cerebral cortex live longer, regardless of their body size.
A new study suggests carriers of a genetic mutation in the serotonin 2B receptor may be protected from obesity and insulin resistance.
Researchers report a molecular pathway that activates during fasting could help halt the spread of intestinal bacteria into the bloodstream.
A new study reports sleep loss can lead to alterations in gut bacteria that have previously been linked to diabetes and obesity in humans.
Beta2-adrenergic receptors in brown fat cells are responsible for stimulating thermogenesis.
