Researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine have identified a key molecular player in guiding the formation of synapses â€” the all-important connections between nerve cells â€” in the brain.
Immature cortical neurotransmitter response underlies invisible seizures, blocks response to antiseizure drug.

British scientists say studying the way a person's brain sings could improve our understanding of conditions such as epilepsy and schizophrenia. Researchers in Cardiff University's Brain Research Imaging Center say they've discovered a person's brain produces a unique electrical oscillation at a particular frequency when a person looks at a visual pattern.
Studying the way a person's brain 'sings' could improve our understanding of conditions such as epilepsy and schizophrenia and help develop better treatments, scientists at Cardiff University have discovered.
A large proteomics study on the brains of newborn mice provides more evidence that numbing drugs often used in obstetric or pediatric medicine can have profound and long-term negative effects, even after minimal exposure.This study, appearing in the December issue of Molecular and Cellular Proteomics, highlights the delicate state of the developing nervous system and reinforces the use of caution when administering sedatives, anesthetics, and anti-convulsants to pregnant women or...
In a novel study appearing this week in Neuron, Brandeis researchers identify for the first time a specific set of wake-promoting neurons in fruit flies that are analogous to cells in the much more complex sleep circuit in humans.
Addex Pharmaceuticals (SWX: ADXN) released today financial results for the first half of 2008 and gave an update on the status of its lead product, ADX10059, which is in development for GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) and migraine.
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c78985) has announced the addition of Pipeline Report - Neuronal Alpha 7 Nicotinic Receptors: Candidates for the Treatment of Alzheimers Disease and Schizophrenia to their offering.
Using a novel analysis of the interactions among related genes, Duke University Medical Center researchers have uncovered some of the first evidence that complex genetic interactions account for autism risk. The Duke team found that the brain mechanism that normally stops or slows nerve impulses contributes to the disease.
