Researchers successfully used electroacupuncture to increase the gene expression of enkephalins and reduce blood pressure for three days.
The hippocampus and amygdala directly exchange signals in order to recognize emotional stimuli and encode them into memories, researchers report.
Researchers generate microglia from stem cells derived from the skin. They believe their findings could help advance the understanding of the role microglia plays in Alzheimer's.
Researchers have identified a neurobiological basis for the processing and reactivation of spatial information in rodents.
Researchers have made a significant breakthrough in restoring the ability to form lasting memories in older or damaged brains.
A new study reports participating in light physical activity, such as yoga or tai chi, can help to increase connectivity between brain areas responsible for memory formation and storage.
Researchers have identified a rare genetic mutation that alters brain development in mice. The mutation appears to cause impairment in memory and disrupts neurotransmission. The study reports memory problems may be improved by transplanting progenitor cells capable of generating inhibitory interneurons into the hippocampus.
Researchers report fasting affects the circadian rhythm of the liver and skeletal muscles, allowing them to rewire their metabolism. The study suggests fasting can help improve health and protect against aging related diseases.
A new study reports brain connectivity appears to be dictated by the spatial architecture of neurons, rather than the cell type-specific cues.
Imbalanced communication between the hippocampus and amygdala may lead to the inability to distinguish between negative memories that have overlapping features. The findings could provide new treatment options for those with PTSD.
