New information about the structure of the TRPA1 protein could help provide new treatments for inflammation induced pain.
A new study reports TRPV1 controls the nerves that release noradrenaline and affects core body temperature during the 'fight or flight' response.
Researchers have discovered a protein in the brain which is involved in hydration and thermoregulation.
A new study reveals the structure of a crucial ion channel and shed new light on it's possible role in immune functions.
A new study challenges the most influential textbook explanation of how the mammalian brain detects when the body is becoming too warm.
Researchers have developed a new, minimally invasive brain stimulation technique that can induce a range of bodily movements. The technique, magneto-thermal stimulation, can be used to target highly specific brain regions and could help researchers to advance brain mapping studies.
