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-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.
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.
