Researchers discover a connection between the quantity of CB1 cannabinoid receptors in the brain and PTSD.
Researchers discover people detect and process grammatical errors with no conscious awareness of doing so.
Researchers have discovered a way in which the body can remove injured axons. They also identified a potential target for new drugs which could prevent the inappropriate loss of axons, as well as maintain nerve function.
Researchers have successfully tested a new vaccine in primates to battle cocaine addiction. Using neuroimaging techniques, they demonstrated the vaccine prevents cocaine from reaching the brain and producing a dopamine induced high. Human trials could begin within the next year.
Monitoring progenitor cells in the brains of living mice, researchers discover these cells remain highly dynamic in the adult brain. Progenitor cells can transform into cells that insulate nerve fibers and help form scars that aid in tissue repair, study suggests.
Researchers have discovered how cholinesterase inhibitors, a class of drug that prevents the breakdown of acetylcholine, could sharpen the brain's performance in patients with Alzheimer's disease.
Scientists reported successful preclinical tests in rats of a new vaccine against heroin addiction. The vaccine targets heroin and its psychoactive breakdown products in the bloodstream, blocking relapse.
Targeting the nucleus accumbens by using deep brain stimulation could modify specific eating behaviors linked to weight changes and obesity, a new study suggests.
