Microglia play a critical role in reorganizing neural connections, fighting infections, and repairing damage to neurons while we sleep.
In times of uncertainty, noradrenaline helps us learn and adapt our behaviors, researchers report.
Motor learning deficits associated with autism may be the result of reduced levels of noradrenaline release in the primary motor cortex.
The old adage that practice makes perfect may very well be true, according to neuroscientists. Researchers found when a male zebra finch is in the presence of an attractive female and delivers its rehearsed mating call, a noradrenaline release in the basal ganglia shuts down variability in song and makes the call as perfect as it can be.
Researchers have found a direct connection between flavan 3-ols consumption and fat browning by activation in the sympathetic nervous system. The findings could help in the development of new treatments for obesity-related disorders.
