Study points to the evolutionary and developmental similarities between sensory cells in the inner ear and skin.
c-Fos accumulates in the nucleus of peripheral nerve cells of mouse models of chronic pain. Researchers identified around 30 existing drugs that appear to target the importin alpha-3-c-Fos pathway to help treat chronic pain.
The loss of the protein neurofibromin 1 (NF1) in adult male flies resulted in social impairments. The deficits were traced back to a primary disruption in a small group of peripheral neurons which control external stimuli, including touch and smell, that communicate to the brain.
Time plays a key role when it comes to Weber's Law.
A new study reports the neurons that focus on coarse visual details could change to prefer finer details under different conditions. The findings shed new light on the neural mechanism that helps shape our perception of the world.
A new study reports researchers have successfully generated an artificial memory by injecting a sea snail with the RNA from another. Researchers say this approach could lead to new treatments to restore memory and alter traumatic memories in humans.
A new study reveals how interneurons emerge and diversify in the brain.
Researchers have identified neurons that help to initiate an escape from danger response in fruit flies.
Inhibition of the P2X4 protein receptor in sensory neurons decreases sensitivity to touch, a new study reports. The findings could have implications for the development of new topical treatments for psoriasis and dermatitis.
