MAP4343, an experimental antidepressant compound reversed alcohol intake in rat models of alcohol use disorder. The findings pave the way for utilizing the compound for the treatment of AUD in humans.
Lower levels of serine and glycine were associated with a higher risk of neuropathic pain in mouse models of diabetes. Supplementing the diets of the mice with serine reduced symptoms of neuropathy. Researchers say the findings provide a new way in which to identify people at risk of diabetic neuropathy and a potential treatment option.
Time spent in a novel environment causes neural representations to grow in a surprising way.
Time-restricted eating influences gene expression over more than 22 regions in the brain and body. The findings have implications for a range of health disorders in which time-restricted eating appears to have potential benefits.
Researchers have developed a new compound, dubbed FexD, that can prevent and reverse inflammation in mouse models of inflammatory bowel disease.
SGDGs, a class of lipids that decline in the brain during aging, appear to have anti-inflammatory effects that could have implications for neurodegenerative disorders.
Study reveals how a molecule produced by astrocytes interferes with normal neuron development in a range of neurodevelopmental disorders.
CGRP neurons found in subregions of the thalamus and brainstem relay multisensory threat information to the amygdala. These neural circuits are essential for the formation of aversive memories, a new study reports.
Regulatory T cells interact with skin cells using glucocorticoid hormones to generate new hair follicles and promote hair growth. The findings could have positive implications for the development of new therapies to treat alopecia and other hair loss disorders.
Study reveals the different ways the brain parses information through interactions of waves of neural activity.
