Galanin expressing neurons are selectively active during rebound sleep. The expression of galanin increases after neuronal activity and sleep deprivation. The neuropeptide plays a critical role in sleep homeostasis.
Researchers have identified new subtypes of neurons in the hypothalamus and determined the function of a dopamine neuron.
According to a new study, researchers have identified the neural circuit in the brain of fruit flies which is responsible for detecting a taste pheromone.
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 reveals a complexity to neurons which could affect future therapies aimed at altering memory and mood in humans.
