Wisconsin scientists grow critical nerve cells

...otor neurons, according to Zhang, exhibit telltale electrical activity, a sign that the neurons, which normally transmit electrical impulses, were functional. The spinal motor neuron cells have survived in culture in the lab for mo...

...teins,called nicotinic receptors, and changing the electrical properties ofthe cell. The human brain coordinates billions of neurons to mediatecomplex behaviors such as an infant learning to recognize his or herparents, a senior citizen learning to play piano, or the process ofaddiction following repetitive exp...

Researchers Uncover Key Step In Manufacture of Memory Protein

...re ready to be secreted. Once the cell receives an electrical signal from another neuron, these vesicles fuse with the cell’s outer membrane, open up, and release mBDNF. During their research, Dr. Loh and her colleagues observed mice genetically incapable of producing CPE. In these mice, proBDNF could not be d...

Key Trigger Of Opioid Withdrawal Symptoms Found

... the neurotransmitter GABA was responsible for the electrical abnormalities that produce a hyperexcitability in the neurons. Neurotransmitters are the molecular ammunition that one neuron fires at its neighbor to trigger a nerve impulse in the neighbor. Propagation of such nerve impulses through the networks of...

Implanted Devices Detect High-Risk Heart Failure Patients

...rsity Medical Center. Besides maintaining optimal electrical stimulation to the heart, these CRT-D (cardiac resynchronization therapy with defibrillation) devices are giving cardiologists a new view of subtle changes in a key measurement of heart health -- heart rate variability. Patients with little variabili...

Researchers discover molecular mechanism that desensitizes us to cold

...d or menthol stimulate this receptor and alter the electrical properties of the membrane, a process that leads to the sensation of cold. When the receptor is stimulated, calcium enters the cell and stimulates the breakdown of PIP2. When PIP2 is broken down, the receptor becomes inactive, thus ending the sensati...

Stem cells from brain transformed to produce insulin at Stanford

...ells respond to external signals by changing their electrical properties and releasing packages of proteins. In the case of islets, that protein is insulin. What's more, some neurons in mice and humans take the first steps toward producing insulin. In insects such as fruit flies, the cells that produce insulin...

They then gave the rats rehabilitation training. The control group of rats recovered about 55% of the deficit in their reaching ability, while the ra...

After a time-shift, mixed signals from the circadian clock

Smirnakis said it is possible that the visual cortex could reorganize before or after the two- hour to seven-month time frame of...

Discovery clarifies role of peptide in biological clock

When they recorded the electrical activity of SCN neurons from these mice, they found that many had lost their beat while others were cycling but unable to synch to each other. But when Herzog and Aton added VIP to the mice cells, the synchronicity was restored, showing that VIP cou...
