Scientists may have discovered why the standard treatment for Parkinson's disease is often effective for only a limited period of time.
A study by researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis involving laboratory mice found that sleep disruption could be an early sign of Alzheimer’s disease.
Researchers have succeeded in tracking a single protein that regulates the neurotransmitter serotonin, making it possible to study the dynamics of the protein which regulates mood, appetite and sleep, at an unprecedented level of detail.
Early disruptions in serotonin signaling in the brain may contribute to autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and other "enduring effects on behavior," Vanderbilt University researchers report.
Researchers at the University of Copenhagen have designed, produced and patented a new chemical compound for the possible treatment of brain damage caused by stroke.
Researchers have revealed that the neural circuits controlling hunger and eating behaviors are also controlled by plasticity.
Some unusual alliances are necessary for you to wiggle your fingers, researchers report.
When nerve cells communicate with one another, specialized receptor molecules on their surfaces play a central role in relaying signals between them.
A brain cell type found where habits are formed and movement is controlled has receptors that work like computer processors to translate regular activities into habits.
- Sleep; the state or condition of being asleep.
- The state or condition of numbness of a part due to pressure on a nerve: as, the obdormition of a limb.
