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 shed new light on neuroplasticity by sparking learning in tadpole brains. They discovered the key to neuroplasticity is how the brain generates new proteins. Findings could help deepen understanding of sensory processing in ASD.
Researchers report taurine may help to boost remyelination in multiple sclerosis patients.
Scripps researchers have uncovered the process that helps control neuron growth.
Structural mapping of both SARS and SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, reveals an almost identical site on both coronaviruses to which the CR3022 antibody binds. This suggests a functionally important and vulnerable site for this family of coronaviruses.
Researchers reveal the role corticotropin-releasing factor produced by neurons plays in alcohol withdrawal symptoms.
Researchers have identified a specific node in the brain of mice that regulates vocalizations in response to social situations. If a similar location could be found in the human brain, researchers say it could potentially lead to new insight into social dysfunctions associated with autism and depression.
