Chronic Stress Can Lead To Mental Illness
2014-02-12 08:56:22

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Chronic stress generates long-term changes in the brain, according to a new study from the University of California, Berkeley. These changes may explain why people suffering from chronic stress are prone to mental problems such as anxiety and mood disorders. The findings, published in the journal Molecular Psychiatry, might lead to new therapies to reduce the risk of developing mental illness after stressful events. Robert Sanders...

Spending A Week In Darkness May Improve Hearing Loss

[ Watch the Video: Lights Out For Your Hearing ] April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online It has long been known that if you take away once sense from a person, the other four will become more finely tuned. A new study, published in Neuron, reveals that minimizing a person's sight for as little as a week may help improve the brain's ability to process hearing. Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles – both blind musicians – are often cited by music experts as examples of how a...

Simulated blindness gives adult mice sharper hearing, according to a study published today by University of Maryland and Johns Hopkins University scientists. College Park, MD (PRWEB) February 05, 2014 Call it the Ray Charles Effect: a young child who is blind develops a keen ability to hear things others cannot. Researchers have known this can happen in the brains of the very young, which are malleable enough to re-wire some circuits that process sensory information. Now researchers at...

Scientists have identified a channel present in many pain detecting sensory neurons that acts as a 'brake', limiting spontaneous pain. It is hoped that the new research, published today [22 January] in the Journal of Neuroscience, will ultimately contribute to new pain relief treatments. Spontaneous pain is ongoing pathological pain that occurs constantly (slow burning pain) or intermittently (sharp shooting pain) without any obvious immediate cause or trigger. The slow burning pain is the...

Anxiety And Social Phobias Made Worse By Missing 'Brake' In The Brain
2013-12-05 05:20:13

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online A team led by researchers from the Medical University of Vienna has discovered one possible source of anxiety disorders and severe phobias – a missing inhibitory connection or “brake” in the brain. When experienced at a manageable level, fear can make people alert and help protect them against danger, it can also disrupt an individual’s sensory perception and reduce happiness when it becomes disproportionate. Now the...

Midbrain
2013-07-25 15:13:23

The midbrain, also known as the mesencephalon is the part of the brain most responsible for vision, motor control, arousal, temperature regulation, alertness and hearing. Formation and Orientation The midbrain is found under the cerebral cortex and above the hindbrain. The mesencephalon is not divided into any other portions of the brain unlike the other two vesicles that stem from the neural tube. There are four separate lobes on the side of the cerebral aqueduct within the...

Brain
2013-03-05 13:54:00

Formation and Orientation The development of the brain is broken down into stages. The basic evolution begins in the third week of the embryonic process where the neural plate is formed. By week four, the neural plate has developed into the neural tube. The anterior part of the tube, the telencephalon, grows rapidly as it prepares to later give way to the brain. As time goes on, cells begin to classify themselves as either neurons or glial cells, thus determining their functions. Glial...
