Scripps researchers have uncovered the process that helps control neuron growth.
Researchers report neurons in areas of the brain associated with memory formation can form networks in the absence of synaptic activity.
Exposure to anesthesia causes lipid clusters to move from an ordered state to a disordered one, then back again. These changes lead to subsequent effects that cause changes in consciousness.
Researchers believe they may have found a reason for that all too well known holiday phenomenon, a 'food coma'.
Mutations in PTEN affect the assembly of connections between two brain areas important for the processing of social cues, researchers report.
Study identifies a specific protein in sensory neurons that detects mechanical itch stimuli such as an insect crawling on the skin or when one touches an object that irritates the skin.
Researchers have identified a hormone that appears to trigger fat burning in the gut.
According to a new study, alcohol increases neural activity in the central amygdala.
Study reveals how two neural circuits dictate the choice between social approach and avoidance. The network connecting the infralimbic cortex to the basolateral amygdala (BLA) impairs social behavior if there is a decrease in neural activity. Another network connecting the prelimbic cortex to the BLA similarly impairs social behavior if the neural activity is increased.
PPL2 neurons help modulate the strength of memories.
Study reveals up to 45% of people infected with COVID-19 were asymptomatic. The findings suggest asymptomatic infections likely played a significant role in the early and ongoing spread of coronavirus.
