Key Trigger Of Opioid Withdrawal Symptoms Found

... region of the midbrain--called the periaqueductal gray (PAG)--known to be involved in such withdrawal symptoms. Opiate addiction inhibits neuron activity in this region, which alters the neuronal machinery to compensate for this inhibition. Upon opiate withdrawal, the neurons rebound, becoming hyperactiv...

Gray wolves maintain the food chain in winter

...n be buffered by a top predator - the reintroduced gray wolf (Canis lupus). Gray wolves inhabited most of North America until US extirpation campaigns nearly eradicated them by the 1930s. In 1995, the US Fish and Wildlife Service reintroduced the persecuted predator into Yellowstone. Wilmers and Getz use...

Undesirable expatriates: Preventing the spread of invasive animals

Elderly mice yield clues to the process of growing old

...gly, the mice develop symptoms of old age, notably gray hair and hair loss, more commonly seen in humans than mice. Prolla suggests that new studies of mice engineered to have fewer than normal mitochondrial DNA defects or improved mitochondrial function may pave the way for strategies to retard aging. "...

This physical transformation signals to males and females alike that he's the top fish now and will vigorously defend his newly acquired breeding grounds. "W...

A little telomerase isn't enough

...In this family, the affected grandmother developed gray hair in her 20s and lung problems in her early 60s and died at age 65. Her affected children developed signs of the disease about 10 years earlier than she had, and analysis of their cells revealed that 60 percent to 75 percent of their chromosomes h...

Microbes under Greenland Ice may be preview of what scientists find under Mars' surface

They estimated that 80 percent of the microbes were still alive. Though methane has been detected ...

Cortex matures faster in youth with highest IQ

...t cleverer solely by virtue of having more or less gray matter at any one age," explained Rapoport. "Rather, IQ is related to the dynamics of cortex maturation."The observed differences are consistent with findings from functional magnetic resonance imaging, showing that levels of activation in prefrontal...

Aggression-related gene weakens brain's impulse control circuits

Volume of an area important for motivation and impulse regulation (orbital frontal cortex) was ...

Brain differences could explain why males and females experience pain relief differently

...in the area of the brain called the periaqueductal gray (PAG). This region of the brain relays information regarding pain to another brain region, the rostral ventral medulla (RVM). This PAG-RVM circuit is the main pain circuit in the brain, and is responsible for the sensation of pain. Both narcotics a...
