Researchers recorded alterations in levels of both dopamine and serotonin in the brain when people perform perception and decision making based tasks.
The retrieval of mitochondria via a feedback loop is vital to sustaining synaptic transmission.
Receptor potentiation was observed when the antagonists bind to receptors that consist of different subunits, where it acts as a subunit.
Working memory isn't confined to one area of the brain. It requires synchronous activity of at least two brain areas.
Researchers have identified a novel neural circuit that detects male pheromone cues pertaining to inter-male aggression.
Alterations in the excitation and inhibition balance is regulated in the developing brain by astrocytes via the ephrin-B1 protein. The loss of astrocytic ephrin-B1 alters the E/I balance by reducing inhibition, resulting in hyperactivity of neural circuits. The hyperactivity results in reduced sociability in mice.
Paying attention alters how the brain allocates its limited energy. As the brain uses more energy to process information we attend to, the less energy is supplied to processing outside our field of attention.
Common green apple flavorant farnesene enhances nicotine reward in mouse models. The flavorant is also rewarding on its own. Researchers say with or without nicotine, flavored vapes, especially those containing farnesene, pose potential neurological risks, including addiction.
