New data links the amounts of certain neuropeptides in the brains of killer bees with their behavior both inside and outside the hive.
A new study identifies a possible biomarker for predicting whether preterm infants are at risk for developing motor developmental problems.
Using optogenetics, researchers obtain a better understanding of the neurochemical basis for alcohol addiction.
A new study reports a potential new treatment for seizures which often occur in children with genetic metabolic disorders and people with liver failure.
Axon pruning becomes reactivated in neurodegenerative diseases, a new study finds.
A new study finds that between ages 3 and 10, children with ASD exhibit distinct brain chemical changes which differ from children with developmental delays and those considered to undergo typical neurodevelopment.
Researchers suggest serotonin metabolism in the pineal gland could play a role in the underlying cause of depression. The findings were based on biochemical changes which were seen to be in association with improvements in depression.
Using sophisticated imaging techniques, researchers observe a molecular protein folding process which could help better understand and treat neurodegenerative diseases and cancers.
Researchers have discovered Mannitol, a sugar alcohol commonly found in sugar-free gum and candy, prevents clumps of the protein α-synuclein from building in the brain. This build of this protein is characteristic of Parkinson's disease. The finding could provide potential treatment options for this and other neurodegenerative diseases.
Researchers uncover clues about the biochemical pathway in the brain which could expand treatment options for schizophrenia.
Researchers discover a new phase of synaptic development. The finding could lead to a better understanding of how learning and memory occur.
