Researchers have identified some of the key neurobiological mechanisms that help keep aggression under control. The findings could help develop targeted treatments to help those with aggressive problems associated with psychological disorders.
Researchers have developed a light-sensitive switch that regulates a protein implicated in synaptic plasticity. The researchers believe the photoswitch could help shed light on learning, memory and neurodegeneration.
Elevated glycine levels are associated with the onset of psychosis, a new study reports.
Scientists have discovered a biological marker that may help to identify which depressed patients will respond to an experimental, rapid-acting antidepressant like ketamine. The brain signal, detectable by noninvasive imaging, also holds clues to the agent's underlying mechanism, which are vital for drug development, say NIH researchers.
CSHL structural biologists reveal molecular architecture of key NMDA receptor subunit Structure of GluN2D subunit when docked with certain neurotransmitters...
Studying rats in a virtual reality maze, researchers discover certain hippocampal neurons play a vital role in a specific mechanism of navigation.
A new Zebra fish study reveals a lack of sensory stimulation following birth can impact neurogenesis and brain development.
A new study has identified neural circuits in mice which are involved in the learning and altering of behaviors. The findings could have implications for alcoholism and other addictive behaviors.
Researchers report alcohol produces the same neural and molecular changes as drugs that have proven to be rapidly effective antidepressants.
